On Friday, June 10, Congressman Steve King voted no a Legislative Branch Appropriations Act. King said his vote was driven not only by a lack of consideration on four separate amendments he had introduced for the bill, he says Congress cannot continue to appropriate at such high dollar amount levels, especially considering the nonessential funding exemplified in this bill. The United States is currently over $19 trillion in debt, King added, and this bill fails to achieve our goals to cut spending levels. King had introduced amendments addressing transgender bathroom policy on Capitol grounds, barred employment of those unlawfully present, empowering Capitol Police to enforce immigration laws and allowing lawful carry of firearms on Capitol grounds. The $3.5 billion bill did pass on a vote of 233 to 175.
