Statement Of Sen. Alexander - President's Budget Proposal

Posted on February 2, 2004

What I like best about President Bush's budget is that it holds the line on spending and aims to reduce the federal deficit by half over the next five years. It puts the priorities where they ought to be - on defense and better schools at home, and provides within the budget, $250 million to give grants to our community colleges to train Tennesseans so that they can get a better job.
