Bustos statement on vote against “Minibus” funding bill

“If signed into law, the spending bill Washington Republicans passed today would trigger indiscriminate cuts, slashing military spending by billions of dollars – damaging our national security, hurting our local economy and undermining our troops in the field. I am hopeful that when this bill comes back to the House in its final form, we will reach a bipartisan consensus that fully supports our troops while eliminating the irresponsible consequences.”
