WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) voted in favor of passing the Senate budget resolution, which, if adopted by the full Congress, would set spending levels for the federal government for Fiscal Year 2022.
“This budget resolution will enable Congress to tackle many of the most pressing challenges that our nation faces,” said Senator Rosen. “The resolution lays the groundwork for significant investments that will lower costs and create jobs for Americans – through economic development, greater health care access, small business support, workforce training, universal pre-K, funding for high-quality child care, and affordable housing. The legislation also outlines plans to support hard-working families in Nevada and across our nation by cutting taxes for working families, by extending the Earned Income Tax Credit, the Child Tax Credit, and the Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit, and also by establishing a first-ever federal paid family and medical leave benefit.”
“The budget resolution allows us to strengthen health care in the United States by adding dental, vision, and hearing benefits to the Medicare program and investing in home-based care programs for our nation’s seniors,” Senator Rosen continued. “This resolution also empowers us to take steps to address the urgent issue of climate change by providing a framework for greater development of clean, renewable energy and climate resilience initiatives in Nevada and nationwide. These forward-thinking investments in our country will set the United States on a path toward a successful future.”
