Diaz-Balart Statement on President Trump’s Budget Request
WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25), a senior member of the House Appropriations and Budget Committees, released the following statement in response to President Trump’s FY 18 budget request.
“As a member of the Appropriations and Budget Committees, I will thoughtfully review and consider the President’s request.
