Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-02) Statement on Passage of The Make America Secure Appropriations Act

Washington, DC - Today, Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-02) released the following statement regarding the House of Representatives passing H.R. 3219, The Make America Secure Appropriations Act 2018:

“The passage of the Make American Secure Appropriations Act will ensure that our military, law enforcement, Department of Veterans Affairs and other important agencies have the necessary funds to keep Americans safe at home and abroad.

Specifically, I am glad the bill funds a wall along the Mexican border to help keep dangerous illegal immigrants out of our country.

This bill also keeps our promise to those serving in the military and veterans. It provides the highest level of funding ever for the Department of Veterans Affairs, a nearly five percent increase over the previous year. The bill also funds the largest pay increase for active military personnel in over eight years,” said Rep. Mooney.
