Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman David Rouzer released the statement below following the House vote on H.R. 1314, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015.  H.R. 1314 is a two-year budget deal which increases discretionary military and domestic spending by $80 billion and raises the debt ceiling by $1.5 trillion in new federal debt.

“Though this budget agreement includes a much-needed increase in funding for our military, it authorizes far too much spending on other bloated federal bureaucracies that are harming economic growth and job creation.”

H.R. 1314 passed the House of Representatives today by a vote of 266-167.
