Carter Statement on Passage of Continuing Resolution

Congressman John Carter (TX-31) released the following statement after the House passed legislation to fund the government until March 23, 2018 and provide the Department of Defense full-year FY18 funding. 

“Congress’s most important job is providing for our Armed Forces. I cannot overstate the importance of giving stability to the Department of Defense by providing them with full-year funding. Tonight’s vote gives our troops the necessary resources to keep our nation safe, and removes them from these ongoing partisan funding fights.” 

“As we continue to work towards an agreement, it’s vital that our troops have the stability that comes with this full-year funding package, while keeping the government open.”

Bill information:

  • Keeps the government funded at the current FY2017 rates until March 23, 2018 
  • Provides $659.2 billion in full-year FY18 funding for the Department of Defense
  • Fully funds the 2.4% pay raise for our men and women in uniform
  • Funds $3.4 billion in critical modernization of Army’s armored vehicle fleet
