Murray Statement on the OMB FY15 Mid-Session Review

Washington, D.C. – Today, Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray (D-WA) released the following statement on the Office of Management and Budget’s FY15 Mid-Session Review:

“Today’s report from the Office of Management and Budget shows once again that our fiscal outlook has improved significantly in the near-term, and while we need to continue to tackle long-term deficits fairly and responsibly, we have room to focus on other deficits in areas like jobs, innovation, infrastructure, and education. Making critical investments in these areas would expand opportunity for families and workers and encourage broad-based economic growth now and in the future.”
