Washington, D.C.—Today, Congresswoman Deborah Ross (NC-02) released the following statement on President Biden’s Fiscal Year 2023 discretionary budget proposal:

“President Biden’s budget proposal goes a long way to help our workers and businesses thrive, lower everyday costs for the middle class, and make our nation safer at home and stronger abroad. His spending blueprint promises to bring much-needed investments to North Carolina to increase affordable housing, strengthen our supply chains, make college more affordable, and more—all while reducing deficits and ensuring billionaires pay their fair share. I’ve been fighting since day one in Congress to deliver results for North Carolina and I look forward to working with my colleagues to fully examine this proposal and pass a budget that reflects our needs and our values.”
