Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Friday, an article in The News & Observer highlighted U.S. Representative Mark Walker's (NC-06) opposition to the Continuing Resolution – which passed the House on Thursday – and highlighted what it signals as he steps in to lead the Republican Study Committee (RSC).

"Walker’s opposition this week signals he’ll lead the RSC next year in pushing back against last-minute legislation often loaded with spending and provisions designed to solicit broad support from lawmakers," the article reads. "Walker’s statement Thursday called on Republicans to consider their approach to passing budgets as much as they consider their policy positions and spending priorities."

The article continued: “'This bill is a far cry from how our government should be funded and what priorities should be appropriated...In the next Congress, we have to dedicate ourselves to being proactive, rather than reactive,' he said."
