BREAKING: House passes omnibus spending bill, legislation sent to Biden’s desk

23 December 2022- Today, Congressman John Joyce, M.D. (PA-13) released the following statement on the passage of the H.R. 2617 – FY23 Omnibus Appropriations:

“Today, I voted against the Democrats’ omnibus spending legislation. Rushing an over 4,000-page bill that spends over $1.7 trillion in taxpayer dollars in just a matter of days before Christmas – and before House Democrats lose their majority – is not a responsible way to govern,” said Congressman Joyce. “Rather than focusing on securing our border, controlling inflation, and promoting American energy dominance, this legislation prioritizes Green New Deal funding that will only result in higher costs for gasoline and groceries. It’s time to return to regular budgeting processes and pass budgets that serve the American people.”
