*Gavels*

This committee is called to order. I will give a brief opening statement, and allow Vice Chair @Marmot Of the Marsh to offer remarks if he so chooses. After that, we will immediately begin discussion on Agenda item I.

 

Opening Statement

This committee has been established in the interest of American growth and prosperity.  While I’m eager to get to work, crafting a budget that is suitable to keeping our nation great, the truth is that it should not have gotten to this point.

The Continuing Appropriations Act of 2021 and this Special Committee on Appropriations and the Budget—SCAB—are only temporary solutions to the harmful government shutdown caused by this Administration.  It is critical that we work not only to fully reopen the government, but to ensure that there’s a roadmap to reducing the size and unsustainable overreach of the United States over the next few years.

I’m eager to work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle, from both houses of Congress, in support of fiscal responsibility, small government, and low taxes.  Let’s together develop a smarter way to spend American’s hard-earned tax dollars.

I’ll now yield to the Vice Chair or his designee, if you would like to offer remarks.

Yes, if Vice President @Jewell and Secretary @Batman choose to accept the invitation, they may present a statement and accept questions from this Committee. 

If not, and if there’s no discussion on the Presidents proposed budget, we will switch to the third agenda item.

 

((I’ll reach out and see if they’re doing statements or not))
