Daines Concerned About Budget Agreement

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Representative Steve Daines says he's concerned about the budget agreement. He says it fails to offer Montanans a solution for the debt crisis.

While he says he's encouraged both sides are working toward an agreement, he also says, "rather than taking serious and needed steps to address Washington's spending addiction and growing debt, this budget relies largely on spending cuts many years from now to offset immediate spending increases," said Daines.

Daines was one of 94 representatives who voted against the budget agreement.
