On December 18th, Representative Steve Knight (CA-25) made the following statement:

This morning I voted for H.R. 2029, the Consolidated Appropriations Act.  The omnibus is far from perfect- it does not strengthen our border as much as I would like and it does not do enough to reduce our nation’s debt. However, my number one priority is to protect the American people and our way of life, and the omnibus improves our military so we can defeat and destroy ISIS and other terrorist organizations at home and abroad. Additionally, it has many provisions that will strengthen the American economy and support families and our communities. Finally, as a representative it is my job to govern, which means making tough choices and balancing the good with the bad. Ultimately, voting for the omnibus was the right choice for our community.
