Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas today released the following statement after he joined his colleagues in the United States House of Representatives in voting for passage of H.R. 325, the No Budget, No Pay Act.

“I am pleased the House passed H.R. 325, the No Budget, No Pay Act today,” said Lucas. “We have consistently worked in the House to come up with commonsense solutions to reduce government spending. In the past two years, we have passed two budgets in the House, and now it is time for leaders in the Senate to follow our lead and do the same. The Senate has failed to produce a budget in over 1,300 days, and I am proud this legislation forces them to pass a budget and set forth a plan to help tackle our nation’s debt disaster.

“We simply cannot continue down this path of destructive spending and borrowing. I can assure my constituents in Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District that I will continue to work as a leader of Congress to come up with a plan to help balance the budget and get us back on the track of fiscal responsibility.”
