Congressman Lowenthal Supports Two-Year Federal Budget Agreement—Applauds Bipartisan Passage

Washington, D.C., October 28, 2015 | comments

Today, Congressman Lowenthal voted with 265 other Democratic and Republican Members of Congress to pass H.R. 1314, a bipartisan two-year budget agreement. The Congressman issued the following statement on the passage of the agreement by the House:

“For the second time in two days, the House has come together in a bipartisan way to pass meaningful legislation that protects Americans, supports workers, and keeps our government on solid ground. I am proud to be part of these efforts. This is what I was sent to Washington to do. Efforts like the budget agreement and the re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank are good steps toward helping to restore trust in our Legislative branch.

“Specifically, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 breaks the stranglehold of the sequester--and achieves equal funding increases for defense and domestic initiatives over the next two years.

“This agreement prevents a major increase in Medicare B premiums, ensures that the Social Security disability fund remains fully solvent through 2022, protects the full faith and credit of the U.S. by extending the debt ceiling through 2017, and decreases fiscal uncertainty within the federal government by setting specific budget levels for the next two fiscal years.

“I was proud to support this agreement because it moves our nation forward, protects Americans, and brings us one step closer to a Congress that can work together in the future.”
