Guinta calls for federal budget reform

May 25, 2012

Speaking at a business awards ceremony in Manchester Friday, First District Congressman Frank Guinta emphasized the role that small businesses play in creating jobs and keeping what he called a diverse economy thriving. Guinta argued that over 30 pieces of jobs-related legislation were passed in the house with bipartisan support and criticized the media for not highlighting this more.  The congressman also stressed the role the federal budget can plan play in fostering a stronger national economy.

“It is important to at least produce a document that shows what your budget priorities are and give predictability to those job creators, and to try to do what you can to improve outdated or archaic decisions from past congresses.”                               

Congressman Guinta also called for reforming the federal budget process, which he noted is governed by guidelines set in 1974.
