WASHINGTON, D.C.—House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s rescissions package that was delivered to the House this morning:

“I applaud President Trump for leading the charge against wasteful government spending. This rescissions package, the largest in history, is focused on eliminating government waste so we can save taxpayers more of their hard-earned dollars. After eight years under President Obama, it’s refreshing that we finally have a president who cares about holding government accountable and being a good steward of taxpayers’ money—yet another example of President Trump keeping his promises to the American people. I look forward to working with my House colleagues to quickly pass this legislation so we can be one step away from the president signing this taxpayer-savings bill into law.”
