WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today issued the following statement on President Biden’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 budget request to Congress.

“Today’s budget put forth by the Biden administration checks every box of their progressive agenda. This budget fits along with their partisan budget tactics, deficit raising policies, and inflation causing legislation like the Inflation Reduction Act and American Rescue Plan.

“I will use my role in the U.S. Senate, particularly my role on the Appropriations Committee, to bring balance, restraint, and regular order to the federal spending process. Let’s be clear – the budget put forward by President Biden today will not be enacted. That is welcome news, as this misguided, bloated plan would subject American families to more taxes, waste, and government intrusion that they do not deserve during the continued challenging economic times that define this administration.”
