September 29, 2016
Press Release

Congressman Lamborn released the following statement after the passage of a Continuing Resolution to fund the federal government: 

"I voted to support the Continuing Resolution that funds the government through December 9th. I took this crucial step to prevent significant disruptions to our veterans and our brave men and women in uniform. The Continuing Resolution also includes important funding for Colorado's fifth district, including $36 million for the Pikes Peak National VA cemetery and other veterans and military construction programs. Additionally, this move will allow the Congress to reassess our spending priorities very soon after we know the outcome of the November election. 

I remain committed to pushing for fiscal responsibility in federal funding, and I will continue to fight for sustainable spending levels going forward into Fiscal Year 2017."
