Owens Statement on Democrats’ Partisan Appropriations Bill

Jul 20, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) released the following statement after voting against H.R. 8294, the Democrats’ partisan appropriations bill.

Today’s partisan six-bill appropriations package is insulting to families in my district and across the country facing record-high unaffordable prices at the gas pump, in the grocery store, and everywhere in between. Congress should work together to reduce spending and put core responsibilities – like national security – over wasteful social programs.”
