Hoeven Statement After Voting Against $1.7 Trillion Omnibus Spending Bill

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven issued the following statement opposing the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill:

“With American families facing higher costs due to inflation, Congress needs to stop spending,” said Hoeven. “While there are provisions in this legislation that we support, the topline spending is too high. Instead of passing a massive $1.7 trillion bill, we should allow the next Congress to address government funding. Going forward, Congress needs to work through regular order to fund our priorities, while finding savings to control our debt and deficit.”
