Walker Votes Against Continuing Resolution Spending Bill
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Walker (NC-06) today released the following statement after voting against the Continuing Resolution:
"Though this outcome was preferable to a larger, long-term spending bill, it is my sincere hope that our final vote of 2016 is not indicative of how we will operate in 2017. This bill is a far cry from how our government should be funded and what priorities should be appropriated.
"The approach is just as important as the policy. In the next Congress, we have to dedicate ourselves to being proactive, rather than reactive. It should be our aim to set clear objectives early and achieve defined successes.
"The American people have entrusted us to change Washington. It is unacceptable for us not to deliver on the trust the voters have invested in us."
