Higgins Issues Statement on Trump Budget

May 24, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) issued the following statement today regarding President Trump's recently released budget proposal.

“I’m well on record as a loud and vocal supporter of President Trump. I think he’s doing a great job. He has presented a well-crafted budget that restores Constitutional principles and sets the nation on a path toward fiscal responsibility. While there is still work to be done, this is a great start. My major concern is the proposed repeal of GOMESA funding, which is crucial to coastal restoration efforts in Louisiana. I’ll work with my colleagues to dig through the details and ensure that Louisiana priorities are reflected in any budget that Congress passes. I look forward to working with President Trump as Congress puts together a budget that protects the People’s treasure and puts working Americans first.”
