Statement on Bipartisan Budget Deal

WASHINGTON – Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) issued the following statement on H.J. Res. 59, the Bipartisan Budget Act. The House approved the two-year agreement in a 332-94 vote this afternoon, with Yarmuth voting in favor.

“This bipartisan budget compromise is far from perfect, but it will resolve another immediate threat of shutdown and lessen the impact of radical cuts to education, medical research, and other key federal investments that strengthen Louisville families and bolster our economy. Congress needs to move beyond legislation by self-imposed crisis, and this is a start.”
