Washington, D.C. – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement after the House passed its consolidated appropriations bill to fund the federal government for the coming year.
“Over the past weeks, under the new leadership of Speaker Ryan, we’ve continued our work to return power to every family, worker, parent, and student with meaningful reforms to education, energy, transportation, and issues of national security – taking the government off autopilot and paving the way for a productive 2016.
“While our work is far from finished, we’ve opened up the process and made great strides in promoting and advancing the American people’s priorities through their elected representatives. 2016 will be another opportunity to continue opening this country to the future and empowering every man, woman, and child to pursue their version of the American dream, regardless of their background, or walk of life.”
