WASHINGTON, DC-Today Congressmen Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) voted for H.R.2638, The Consolidated Security, Disaster Assistance, and Continuing Appropriations Act of 2009.  The bill provides a critical increase in funding for our nation’s troops, veterans, and first responders, among other important issues. 

“Our troops and veterans have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  By passing this bill, we are once again proving our commitment to them.  This vital legislation provides a critical increase in funds to ensure quality medical care and treatment, and it gives our troops a well-deserved pay increase.” –Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart (FL-21)

“This legislation addresses many of the concerns the American people face today, and it provides for the needs of our brave men and women in uniform, our veterans and our first responders, as well as our children and our families. It also sets aside funding for the people of Haiti who have been recently devastated by several hurricanes.” –Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-21)
