When I look at a piece of budget legislation, my priority is to make sure that it is fiscally responsible--and also that it benefits the people I represent. After weeks of partisan fighting over the current funding levels, I believe Republicans have found a reasonable short-term solution to our spending problem. I voted in favor of the Continuing Resolution, which gives the following benefits: 1. Avoids a costly government shutdown that would disrupt military and veterans projects nationwide 2. Increases funding for troops and veterans over the current spending levels 3. Increases funding for the VA to fix the backlog of disability claims 4. Blocks GITMO closure and construction of any U.S. facility to house detainees 5. Includes $36 million for the Pikes Peak Cemetery in Southern Colorado The short-term CR is not a perfect bill, but I acknowledge the good provisions in this bill that will pave the way to a more robust fiscal plan later this year.

Israel, we mourn with you as we remember the life of Shimon Peres. The United States benefited from President Peres' unfailing commitment to build upon and strengthen the ties between our two nations. Shimon Peres was seemingly indefatigable. We mourn this precious life, for a light has gone out, but we have confidence that the glow remains with us. When people asked him, 'What's your greatest achievement?' 'What's your greatest regret?' Shimon Peres answered, 'My greatest achievement is what I will do tomorrow. My greatest regret is that I dreamed too small.' May we, like Shimon Peres, never dream too small.
