WASHINGTON – Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., today voted in favor of H.R. 3354, The Make America Secure and Prosperous Appropriations Act for FY’18, a bipartisan spending bill to appropriate funds for the federal government. The House passed the legislation by a vote of 211-198.

“The Constitution which is the bedrock of American society, entrusts Congress with the power of the purse. As legislators that is among our most important responsibilities. Today, the House fulfilled its responsibility to the people and successfully passed twelve government funding bills and scored some major conservative victories in the process.

‘The Making America Secure and Prosperous Act,’ furthers many conservative principles as it rightly protects the sanctity of human life, rejects liberal demands for spending increases, and bolsters our national security. I was pleased to support this bill which keeps our North Carolina economy competitive.”
