Heck Stands Up for Nevada on Budget Vote

Mar 21, 2013 Issues: Budget

WASHINGTON - Congressman Joe Heck (NV-03) today released the following statement after voting against the House Republican budget resolution.

"There is a dire need for us to reduce spending, address the major drivers of our debt, and grow the economy by balancing the budget. I have voted to reduce spending, I have voted to repeal and replace Obamacare, and I have co-sponsored and voted for a Balanced Budget Amendment. But the policy proposals contained in this non-binding resolution indicate the priorities of this budget, and when those proposals disproportionately affect our state, my vote indicates my priority and that priority is Nevada.”
