Van Hollen Statement on Bipartisan Budget Agreement

U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) released the following statement regarding his support for the bipartisan budget agreement passed by the Senate today:

“Today’s bipartisan budget agreement will allow the Senate to get to work investing in the priorities of the American people. With this compromise, we can move forward on appropriating funds to the many crucial federal programs that serve our country – including those necessary to modernize our infrastructure, support education and community development, invest in life-saving medical research, and provide for our military and veterans. While this legislation gives us some stability for the next two years, we must continue to push back against this Administration’s misguided budget priorities. As a member of the Appropriations Committee, I will keep fighting for programs that will help Maryland – and our country – succeed.”
