WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Mark Green voted NO on H.R. 3351, the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act, 2020. He released the following statement explaining his vote.
“Congressional Democrats must not be able to help themselves. They love spending taxpayer money,” said Rep. Mark Green. “The president requested lower spending via the budget he submitted to Congress. Yet again, Democrats proposed yet another spending bill that is $400 million above the President’s request and $1.8 billion more than last year’s levels. Just as I explained last week when I voted NO on the last spending package, Tennessee's 7th District did not send me to Washington to grow the size of government. That’s why I voted NO.”
