WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last night, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) voted in favor of the Senate Budget Resolution for Fiscal Year 2016. Senator Ernst released the following statement upon final passage:
“When Iowans sent me to Congress, I pledged to cut wasteful and out of control spending that has consumed Washington and buried our nation in debt.
“The budget resolution is an important step toward restoring fiscal responsibility and includes commonsense reforms to balance the budget, rein in government spending and get Washington moving in the right direction, while providing our military with the needed resources to protect our national security.
“This balanced budget has the necessary fiscal framework to move our country forward, toward a stronger economy that Iowans deserve.”
