U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) issued the following statement after voting for the Congressional balanced budget:

“This joint Senate-House budget agreement is a necessary roadmap to put Congress on the right path toward restoring fiscal responsibility in Washington. It sets the framework to balance the budget, cut out-of-control spending, and helps grow a stronger economy, all while providing our military with the needed resources to protect our national security.

“These pro-growth policies are just commonsense, and I’m optimistic about the way in which Washington is getting to work and embracing meaningful reforms that Iowans deserve.”

Tuesday, Congress passed the first joint 10-year balanced budget resolution for the first time since 2001.
