WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) today released the following statement opposing the effort to attach a continuing resolution (CR) that maintains an unsustainable rate of federal spending to Hurricane Harvey relief and a debt ceiling proposal – two measures he would support if separated from the CR: 

“That CR is a fiscal conservative’s worst nightmare. I support Harvey relief funding, and I can support a debt ceiling increase, but I cannot stomach a vote for a continuing resolution that makes no effort to get spending and the national debt under control.”
