Sessions Applauds Passage of Energy & Water Appropriations Bill

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today released the following statement regarding House passage of H.R. 2609, the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 2014:

“Today the House approved a fiscally responsible bill that invests in all-of-the-above energy solutions, provides funding for national defense weapons programs, and promotes infrastructure projects critical to our economy.  Building on House Republicans’ continued efforts to reduce government spending, this bill smartly prioritizes programs that protect our national security and encourage economic growth and competitiveness.
