Director Daniels Praises House Appropriations Committee
on Passage of FY 2001 Supplemental

Washington, DC, June 20, 2001 -- Office of Management and Budget Director Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr. today released the following statement regarding the House passage of the FY 2001 Supplemental Appropriations Bill:

"Chairman Young and his committee served the nation well today. Their prompt action will sustain an underfunded Department of Defense for the balance of this year, while containing total spending within the FY 2001 budget limits. It’s a step toward restoring order in the nation’s fiscal house, and toward closer cooperation between the executive and legislative branches."
