Congressmen Discuss Budget Deal

Posted: Updated:

Area Congressman Glenn Thompson was in Erie County today, officially announcing his re-election campaign. And later he joined fellow Congressman Mike Kelly to meet with local business leaders.

 They spoke at the Manufacturers and Business Association. Both men said they were encouraged with the recent federal budget deal that came in the wake of the October federal government shutdown.

 Kelly said, "Three years without a budget is a long time. You could not do it in your house, business, church or school. So this is incredibly important for the American people." 

 Thompson said, "By doing the budget, we no longer have continuing resolutions. This past week we actually passed an appropriations bill which will fully fund the services for the rest of the fiscal year. I hope that spirit of bipartisanship will continue."
