ALG to Congress: Pay for veterans, parks

Oct. 1, 2013, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement urging Congress to adopt legislation by Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.) that would fund the Department of Veterans Affairs, and to pass similar legislation to fund the National Parks Service at levels required by sequestration:

“With the government partially shut down while congressional leaders figure out what to do about the Obamacare train wreck, Congress should immediately adopt legislation that will fund our nation’s veterans and national parks. These are two functions that need not be caught in the crossfire over whether or not to implement the health care law.”
