Congressman Burchett statement on voting against another continuing resolution

WASHINGTON, D.C., (September 30, 2023) – Today, U.S. Congressman Tim Burchett (TN-02) released the following statement about his vote against H.R. 5860 – Continuing Appropriations Act, 2024 and Other Extensions Act.

“My reasons haven’t changed since I voted against the continuing resolution yesterday. By law, we have one job and that is to pass 12 appropriations bills and a budget. We aren’t doing that, which is why we are $33 trillion in debt. I won’t vote to let Congress continue kicking the can down the road when we should have been working on this in August. We can’t keep playing games with Americans’ hard-earned money.”

On September 29, Rep. Burchett voted against H.R. 5525– Spending Reduction and Border Security Act, 2024, a continuing resolution to fund the government through October 31, 2023. 

H.R. 5860 would extend government funding through November 17, 2023.
