Mar 11, 2019
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Energy and Commerce Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) released the following statement today after the release of President Trump’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 budget:

“This budget proposal is a sham and has absolutely no chance at ever becoming a reality. It’s clear President Trump and his Administration learned nothing from the government shutdown. Congress simply will not support a proposal that makes drastic cuts to federal agencies so the President can continue to shower the wealthy with giant tax breaks, increase funding for the Defense Department and build his unnecessary wall.”
