Washington, DC – Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) today voted against the omnibus appropriations bill passed by the House today, H.R. 3547, which allocates funding approved in the budget agreement passed last month. LaMalfa supported the December budget agreement that set federal spending at $1.012 trillion, $115 billion less than the government was spending when he was sworn in, but stated that today’s measure should have repaired some of the problems within the budget agreement.     

“I supported the bipartisan budget agreement last month to end the practice of passing continuing resolutions, which simply rubber-stamp the President’s priorities,” said LaMalfa.  “I’m pleased with many of the steps forward this bill included, but there are spending increases in some areas that should be reformed. This measure should have gone through the full appropriations process so that each program and expenditure received an up or down vote, and that wasn’t the case.” 

    Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.
