AFP Key Vote Alert: YES on H.R. 3, the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act

Dear Senators:

On behalf of more than 3.2 million activists in all 50 states, I write urging you to vote YES on the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act (H.R. 3), otherwise known as the rescissions package.

We urge you to vote YES on H.R. 3, the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act (the rescissions package). Americans for Prosperity will include your vote in our congressional scorecard.

Federal overspending has been a growing problem under Congresses and Presidents from both parties. The rescission package is an excellent opportunity to finally take a small but important step in the right direction toward restoring fiscal sanity. Following recommendations from the Trump administration, H.R. 3 would eliminate nearly $15 billion in wasteful, unnecessary, and unobligated spending.

Passage of this rescission package will be a down payment toward more comprehensive and long-overdue spending reform. It will set the right tone for the FY 19 appropriations process, which is already underway. While the problem of overspending will not be solved by this package alone, it will put Congress on track to begin enacting greater spending reform. It is crucial that Senators pass this first step and then turn to those broader reforms.

We urge you to vote YES on H.R. 3, the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act (the Rescissions package). Americans for Prosperity will include your vote in our congressional scorecard.

Sincerely,

Brent Gardner
