Casey Statement on Spending Bill, National Emergency

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) is releasing the statement below following his vote on today’s government spending bill which included spending provisions for the U.S. southern border:

“This bipartisan agreement will keep the government open and invest in effective border security, instead of funding President Trump’s wall, which security experts say will not work.

President Trump’s national emergency declaration is a complete abuse of power. No President can be allowed to spend taxpayer dollars without authorization from Congress.”
