Tipton Supports Two-Year Budget Agreement

Press Release

WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) released the following statement after the House voted to pass a two-year budget agreement titled the Bipartisan Budget Act:

“Earlier this week, the House sent the Senate a responsible spending bill, and I was disappointed with what the Senate sent back to us for consideration. It is disheartening that Senate Democrats stripped away important funding and reforms for rural communities, including measures to fund the Secure Rural Schools program and fight and prevent catastrophic wildfires,” said Tipton. “Even though I am disappointed with this budget agreement, it is imperative that we support the U.S. military and provide much needed certainty for our men and women in uniform. The measure we passed today provides a full year of funding for the Department of Defense and goes a long way towards reversing harmful policies.”
