Responsible Energy and Water Appropriations Act Prioritizes Smart Spending

2015/05/01

On Friday morning, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, Vice Chairman of the Energy and Water Appropriations Subcommittee, voted for H.R. 2028, the Fiscal Year 2016 Energy & Water Appropriations Act. After passage, Fleischmann released the following statement. 

“This is an excellent bill that prioritizes important spending across the country while exercising strong oversight to ensure taxpayer dollars are spent responsibly.  When it comes to national security, this bill is well-rounded. It will enhance the security and stability of our nuclear stockpile and will continue the important work done in Oak Ridge, TN.

“Our nation’s vital waterways are also well funded in this bill.  I am proud to see the Army Corps of Engineers receive funding for important projects like the Chickamauga Lock.  Also included is language that should ensure the Chickamauga Lock retains its current place in the construction priority order, leaving it well positioned to receive funding in Fiscal Year 2016.  Overall, this is a responsible bill, and I was glad to join with my House colleagues in working toward its passage.”

H.R. 2028, Fiscal Year 2016 Energy & Water Appropriations Act, includes $108 million more than the President’s budget for Inland Waterways projects, requires the Army Corps of Engineers to maintain its current prioritizations, and ensures that the Corps spends all the money it is allocated.  The bill also includes full funding for the Uranium Processing Facility.

Fleischmann Votes To Repeal And Replace Medicare SGR Formula

2015/03/26

This afternoon, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann voted for H.R. 2, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act. After passage, Rep. Fleischmann released the following statement.

“By repealing and replacing Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR), we are not only improving health care for seniors, but we are saving money for taxpayers. Without this permanent solution, doctors who treat Medicare patients would face drastic reductions in reimbursement payments, causing them to stop treating Medicare patients altogether. Therefore, permanently fixing the flawed SGR reimbursement model benefits all Americans. It will strengthen our economic future and create a more sustainable path for our nation. Today, we not only improved Medicare – we began a movement to achieve real entitlement reform.”

Rep. Fleischmann Votes For Fiscally Responsible Budget

2015/03/25

This evening, the House of Representatives passed the FY2016 Budget Resolution. After the vote, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann released the following statement.

“With today’s passage of the FY2016 Budget Resolution, we are rebuilding a fiscally responsible nation. Compared to the President’s budget plan which raises taxes by $2.1 trillion and never balances, the budget passed this evening balances the budget within ten years with no new taxes. Since I entered Congress, I have fought to cut spending, lower taxes, and reduce our national debt, and today we moved one step closer to creating a stronger America. This budget supports economic growth and makes key reforms to preserve and strengthen Medicare for future generations. However, in order to successfully implement this budget plan, we need to return to regular order, which means passing individual appropriations bills. It’s time we get the American economy back on track.”
