Congressman Alex Mooney (WV-2) Appointed to Important House Committee on the Budget
WASHINGTON, DC – Republican Congressman Alex Mooney (WV-2) has been appointed to serve on the important House Committee on the Budget.
"One of my top priorities in office will be fighting for a balanced Federal budget. It is totally unacceptable for West Virginians to have to make changes to their household budgets because of static wages, higher costs of living and a still recovering economy while the Federal government continues to allow it’s spending and debt to run rampant.”
“I intend to use my position on this committee to serve as a relentless voice for fiscal conservatism and responsible budgeting. I look forward to helping make Washington finally live within its means.”
On Congressman Mooney’s appointment to the House Budget Committee Chairman Price released the following statement:
"We face tremendous challenges in our efforts to balance the budget, encourage economic growth and job creation. That will require real leadership, and I'm grateful Congressman Mooney is ready and willing to serve on the House Budget Committee as we move forward with positive solutions. I appreciate his service and look forward to working with him."
