Congressman Lucas Votes for Passage of Continuing Resolution

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas today made the following statement after voting in favor of H.J. Res. 59, the Continuing Appropriations Resolution for FY 2014. The Continuing Resolution (CR) passed the House today with a 230 to 189 vote.

“I am pleased we passed this Continuing Resolution to meet our obligation of funding the federal government for the rest of this year,” said Lucas. “It is important that we avoid a government shutdown and help create economic certainty in our country. Now looking forward, the federal government needs to find common sense ways to cut spending and live within our means, just like American families do every day.

“Additionally, I am pleased the CR creates a full and permanent delay of Obamacare. My constituents in the Third District and many others across the country have spoken loud and clear in opposition of this flawed law. This vote reassures Americans that the House remains committed to providing quality health care reform that is not rationed by the federal government.

“It is my hope that H.J. Res. 59 will be passed in the Senate and sent to the president’s desk for his signature. The American people are depending on it.”
