Diaz-Balart Appointed to Budget Conference
WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), member of the House Committee on the Budget and chair of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Subcommittee of the House Committee on Appropriations, released the following statement after he was appointed as a conferee to the bicameral budget conference.
“I am honored to have been chosen as a conferee, and I am grateful to Speaker Boehner and Chairman Price for this opportunity. With the national debt at $18 trillion and growing, it is imperative that we cut waste, while also prioritizing funds to necessary programs. It has been over a decade since our country has had a balanced budget, and it is time to change that. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the budget conference as we begin to get America’s fiscal matters back in order.”
