WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05) released the following statement today applauding the U.S. House of Representatives for passing the fiscal year 2018 Budget Resolution (H. Con. Res. 71), which will balance the federal budget over 10 years. The legislation will produce a $9 billion surplus in fiscal year 2027, with a $6.5 trillion deficit reduction.

"This is the most comprehensive mandatory reform package in 20 years, saving taxpayer dollars, strengthening our national defense and empowering hardworking Americans," said Congressman Rogers, who voted for the budget resolution. "This budget prepares the way for a simpler, fairer tax code, while reining in wasteful spending and boosting support for our men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces."
