Press Release

(Washington, DC) – Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) released the following statement after voting in favor of a bipartisan budget agreement early this morning:

“It’s encouraging that Republicans and Democrats have put aside partisan differences to pass a budget that will benefit middle class families and advance priorities important to the Granite State. As the founder and co-chair of the Bipartisan Heroin Task Force, I’ve called for funding to address the opioid epidemic and I’m pleased this budget provides billions in critical resources for those on the frontlines of this crisis. It also provides support for our veterans and military members, our dairy farmers, children’s health insurance,  community health centers, and disaster relief funding. I’m hopeful that we can continue this bipartisan momentum and come together behind comprehensive immigration reform that will provide protections for young Dreamers brought to the United States as children.”
