Chairman : Especially important is a substantial increase in funds for national defense. Our nation faces multiple security challenges. We must be prepared to meet these challenges, and we must take care of the men and women in uniform, who do the work of freedom.

Chairman : CRs are bad fiscal policy. - They don't allow programs to start, grow, be cut, or eliminated. - They maintain outdated policies. - They are wasteful and prevent careful budget planning from taking place. - They undermine Congressional oversight
