Walberg Votes to Fund Community Health Centers, Support the Military
Washington, D.C.—Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) today voted for a legislative package that keeps the government open, supports the military, and funds community health centers and other public health priorities.
“The legislation the House passed today will keep the government open and provide critical resources to help protect the wellbeing of the people we represent. Families across Michigan turn to community health centers for their health care needs, and this much-needed funding will benefit the patients who rely on these centers and their services. This bill also strengthens our national security, improves military readiness, and supports our troops with the resources they need to keep our country safe. Ultimately, in order to budget responsibly and encourage long-term certainty, this pattern of short-term extensions needs to end. I continue to urge the Senate to take up the full-year government funding bill passed by House last September," said Congressman Walberg.
Congressman Walberg serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the House Education and the Workforce Committee as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions. For more information on Walberg's work in Congress visit walberg.house.gov.
