Press Release

WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement after U.S. House of Representatives today passed legislation providing hurricane disaster relief, raising the debt ceiling, and funding the government through December 8:

“I voted for the Senate bill that provides $15 billion in disaster aid for Hurricane Harvey, and funds the government at current levels and extends the debt ceiling through December 8th of this year. President Trump has asked for this legislation in order to clear the deck for Congress to pass our highest priority, comprehensive tax reform. During this time, I will work with my colleagues to establish a more disciplined approach to our fiscal responsibilities. Our citizens deserve a more transparent and predictable process when handling their money.”
