Runyan Says Budget Will Boost Economy

It’s the U.S. Senate’s turn to vote on a federal budget bill following last night’s bipartisan passage in the House of Representatives. Shore area Congressman Jon Runyan (R-3rd) says passage of the measure would give an economic boost of confidence to the private and government sectors.

“It makes life a little bit easier because of the fact that they know what tomorrow holds and they don’t know if you’re going to run into a situation where we got into a month or so ago with a government shutdown and all of that”, Runyan explained.

The bill would lessen the impact of sequester cuts and insure adequate military funding. Runyan said it could be the first time in seven years that both houses have agreed on a spending plan.

The House voted 332-94 for the measure but folks on both sides of the political isle didn’t get everything they hoped for. Conservatives argue about spending levels and liberals are unhappy that it doesn’t include an unemployment extension.

The legislation is backed by the White House.
