WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) today issued the below statement after voting in support of the budget agreement negotiated by the Trump administration and U.S. House of Representatives leaders. The Senate passed the measure by a vote of 67 to 28, and it now heads to the president’s desk for his signature.
“I’m glad that President Trump and the administration were able to negotiate a budget agreement with House leadership that allows us to now move forward with the appropriations process. One of our most important jobs as members of Congress is delivering the resources to fund our government, provide certainty and support for our military and our veterans, and ensure economic stability for American families. This agreement puts us on the path to accomplish all of those goals, and as chair of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, I’m ready to get to work and do my part to make sure we do so responsibly, effectively, and with the best interests of West Virginians and all Americans in mind.”
