Senator Marshall Leads Letter Requesting Meeting on Broken Budget Process 

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. led a letter to the Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, John Barrasso (R-WY), requesting a member meeting to discuss much-needed reforms to the budget process. 

“Our federal budget process is broken,” Senator Marshall said. “The cycle of the White House and Congress continually missing their spending deadlines and undermining the budget process has to end. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Budget Control Act of 1974, it has been made abundantly clear by our historic national debt that we need to fix this process. I look forward to sitting down with my colleagues and putting pen to paper on ways we can reign in our out-of-control spending.”

Senator Marshall wants to work with his GOP colleagues to implement a better system that holds Washington, D.C. accountable for delivering a budget on time and ends the cycle of irresponsible stop-gap spending measures. 

Senator Marshall’s letter was also signed by Senators Ernst (R-IA), Lee (R-UT), Johnson (R-WI), and R. Scott (R-FL).
