Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement on House passage of H.R. 3, Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act. This $15 billion rescissions package, which is the largest in U.S. history, will help to reduce the deficit by cutting unnecessary spending and returning unused funds back to the U.S. Treasury.

"Last month, President Trump asked Congress to cut billions of dollars in expired and unnecessary programs to help curb government waste. Last night, we delivered as the House voted to fulfill President Trump’s request so taxpayers like those I represent in the Tenth District don’t see more of their hard earned money wasted by Washington bureaucrats."
