House Minority Leader’s Statement on Adoption of Fiscal Year ’12 Budget

BOSTON—House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. issued the following statement today in response to the adoption of the Fiscal Year 2012 budget by the House of Representatives:

I am pleased to have cast my vote in support of adopting the Fiscal Year 2012 budget. This piece of legislation is the result of a collaborative effort, and I commend the Chairman of Way and Means for working with the Republican caucus in delivering a fiscally reasonable budget. I look forward to the continuation of an open and transparent debate when this budget comes before the Senate. I am hopeful that the final budget is similar to that of the House budget.
