More on Congress
Greenville, SC -- Today, Congressman William Timmons (SC-04) attended the ribbon cutting for Lockheed Martin’s new F-16 Fighting Falcon production line in Greenville. The new line brings over 400 jobs and millions of dollars of economic development to the Upstate.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman William Timmons (SC-04) has been named to the House Committee on Education and Labor, the House Committee on the Budget, and to the new Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress.
Next week, I am excited to meet with students and educators in Greenville and Spartanburg. I will be visiting a number of schools across the Upstate, including Southside Christian School, Wade Hampton High School, Fine Arts Center of Greenville, Greenville Charter Middle School, Greenville Technical College, Meeting Street Academy, University of South Carolina Upstate, and South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind.
Tonight (2/14/19), the House held a vote on a hotly debated government funding package. I voted no, and here’s why:
Just this week, the federal government surpassed $22 trillion in debt. Only in Congress would this news be immediately followed by passing a budget-busting bill which in no way even attempts to get our fiscal house in order. When all is said and done, our annual deficit for fiscal year 2019 will be roughly $900 billion dollars. Washington has a spending addiction, and there seems to be no cure in sight.
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman William Timmons (SC-04) cosponsored his first bills in Congress last week, including legislation that requires Congress to balance the budget, defunds Planned Parenthood, supports Gold Star Families, strengthens our national defense, and promotes school choice.
