House Passes Commonsense Legislation That Provides For Greater Accountability
And Transparency In The Federal Budget, Ros-Lehtinen Pleased With The Positive Step
Taken For Our Families & Economy

Washington, DC  – Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) was pleased to join with her colleagues in the House of Representatives in passing H.R. 444, the Require a PLAN Act, which would compel the White House to document when its budget balances.

This commonsense legislation provides for greater accountability and transparency in the federal budget. The best work Washington can achieve for our families and communities is getting the economy back on track and producing badly needed jobs. Getting there requires a serious budget plan that will eliminate the deficit and restore confidence in America.

“The Senate has failed to pass a budget in four years. The White House missed its deadline for submitting a budget four times in the last five years. This is unacceptable. All that this bill does is direct the White House to be honest and transparent with the American people and balance the budget as all families do. No games, no gimmicks, just give us a date when the budget balances. It’s our money Washington is using – so they better have a viable plan for ensuring American economic growth with our hard earned taxpayer dollars,” Said Ros-Lehtinen
