The Committees passage of the budget resolution is a critical first step
in bringing President Bushs budget to fruition. I commend Chairman Nussles
leadership in developing this responsible budget and bringing it to a vote in
a timely manner.
This budget resolution calls for record reduction in the federal debt,
meets the funding priorities outlined in the Presidents budget, moderates
the growth in spending, and embraces the tax relief proposed by the President.
We look forward to working with the Budget Committee and the Congress to make these priorities law.
