Clean Budget Coalition

Congress Must Pass a Clean Budget With No Harmful Riders

196 Groups Have Joined the Call

Every year, Congress must pass a series of appropriations bills to fund the services and safeguards that protect American families and communities. This year, President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans are proposing a budget rigged for millionaires, billionaires and big corporations.

It’s bad enough that Republican lawmakers are proposing deep and painful funding cuts to the agencies that protect our health and safety, our workplaces and wallets, as well as our environment and our economy. But they’re also threatening to attach hundreds of harmful policy riders to the budget that would weaken, repeal or block essential public protections. The inclusion of poison pill riders risks a costly and disruptive government shutdown when funding expires on Jan. 19.

Nearly 200 organizations have joined together to form the Clean Budget Coalition. We’re calling on Congress and the White House to pass a clean budget with no harmful riders, one that funds our communities and protects our families. Follow the Clean Budget Coalition on Twitter @regsrock.
