King Introduces Seven Amendments to the Omnibus Spending Bill
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Steve King released the following statement after submitting seven amendments to the omnibus spending bill:
“During the November election, all Republicans including President Trump vowed to uphold our Constitution, cut spending and listen to the American people,” said King. “The 2017 omnibus spending bill provides Congress the unique opportunity to uphold those promises and that is why I have introduced 7 separate amendments to the omnibus spending bill.
For years, the American people have been demanding that we defund DACA and DAPA, ObamaCare, Planned Parenthood, the Iran Nuclear Deal, sanctuary cities and strike out any expansion of H-2B visas. Furthermore, we must provide the funding for a wall in order to secure our borders. Republicans and all of Congress must be held responsible for election promises made and thus, I believe these amendments should be brought to the House floor for a vote. Today, I am putting the marker down on where I stand, and I challenge my colleagues to do the same.
This is our opportunity to put American people’s priorities at the forefront of the House’s legislative agenda, and I am hopeful we can turn the page and start fresh.”
