On Monday, July 14, 2014, in a speech given on the House Floor, Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) spoke in support of H.R. 5016, the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act, 2015. H.R. 5016 was subsequently passed today by the House. The bill provides funding for the Treasury Department, the Judiciary, the Small Business Administration, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and several other agencies for fiscal year 2015.
“Mr. Chairman, as members of Congress – and especially as appropriators – we have an obligation to carefully steward each and every taxpayer dollar, and in this bill, transparency and accountability rule the day… I commend Chairman Crenshaw and subcommittee staff for producing a bill that is worthy of this chamber’s support.”
