Doyle Votes for Two-Year Budget Agreement

Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Mike Doyle (D-PA-14) released the following statement today after the House approved a two-year bipartisan, bicameral federal budget plan (HR 1892).
 
“I voted in favor of the budget agreement because it’s a reasonable compromise that keeps the government open and provides funding for important Democratic priorities.
 
"For example, the agreement funded Community Health Centers for the next 2 years. There are 33 Community Health Center facilities in Pennsylvania’s 14th District, serving more than 44,000 people a year; they’re an essential part of Pittsburgh’s health care system.
 
"The agreement also contains nearly $90 billion in disaster relief for regions of the country that were hit by devastating wildfires and hurricanes.
 
"In addition, it included $6 billion for the treatment for opioid addiction, which is killing hundreds of people a year in Allegheny County alone.
 
“Finally, the House and Senate Majority leaders made commitments on the record that they’ll bring up a DACA bill. I remain a proud cosponsor of the DREAM Act, and I will hold the Speaker to his word on DACA.”
