Washington, D.C. – United States Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), today issued the following statement in support of the continuing resolution:

“While it may not be getting the attention it deserves, the fact that this legislation keeps the Budget Control Act spending levels intact is a win for fiscal conservatives. These cuts - the only significant federal spending reduction in decades - had to be maintained.  Though the sequester cuts are inelegant at best and too limited at worst, many of us recognize the necessity of preserving them," said Flake. "Over the next few months, Congress must work from the Budget Control Act framework and offer a far leaner federal budget, coupled with entitlement reforms, aimed at putting us on a solid fiscal path forward.”
