May 24, 2017 12:06 am
Rep. John Faso (R-Kinderhook) released a statement after President Donald Trump's staff released a federal budget proposal for 2018. “President Trump’s 2018 budget plan makes some notable, and welcome, recommendations such as balancing the budget in 10 years and boosting our national defense readiness," Faso's statement read. "Deep cuts to domestic programs, however, would threaten Upstate New Yorkers at a time when a still-struggling regional economy and fragile jobs market have left many families concerned about the future. As a member of the Budget Committee, I intend to thoroughly review the details of this suggested budget plan and offer my support for policies and programs that thoughtfully reform federal spending and protect programs critical to our communities.”
