Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom O’Halleran, member of the Agriculture Committee, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos, Co-Chair of the Democratic Policy & Communications Committee, Congressman John Yarmuth, Ranking Member on the Budget Committee, and Congressman Collin Peterson, Ranking Member on the Agriculture Committee today held a press conference highlighting the devastating impact President Trump’s FY2018 budget blueprint would have on hard-working American families, especially those living in rural America.
Washington, DC – Congressman Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01) released the subsequent statement following the release of President Donald Trump’s FY2018 Budget proposal:
“As it stands, the president’s budget proposal would devastate rural communities and negatively impact families across Arizona. Critical domestic programs for working families are on the chopping block,” said Rep. O’Halleran. “Cuts to nutrition assistance programs, community development grants, and counterterrorism funding are irresponsible and shortsighted.”
