Toomey Statement on President Trump’s Budget Proposal

February 12, 2018

Washington, D.C.- Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement regarding President Trump's budget proposal:

"Combating opioid abuse, improving veterans' health care, and boosting funding for national security and our military are worthy priorities President Trump's budget proposal embraces. I look forward to reviewing this budget proposal in its entirety over the coming week." 

"However, it is very important to note that this budget proposal serves only to outline the priorities of the administration and does not carry the weight of law. The ultimate responsibility for passing a budget and funding the government rests with Congress."
