House of Representatives Passes Partisan Appropriations Minibus

WASHINGTON
- Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) released the following statement after the Democrat-led House of Representatives passed the second set of partisan Appropriations packages for Fiscal Year 2021 (FY21).


“Our national security and military are not bargaining chips.  Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats have once again pushed partisan legislation, adding unrelated provisions and using political games to prevent necessary funds from reaching our servicemembers and their families.  Placing politics over substance guarantees lasting damage to our military and our country as a whole.  We need to pass bipartisan legislation that moves the country forward.”
