Congressman Derek Kilmer says not getting a budget done is anti-strategic

May 31, 2013

Congressman Derek Kilmer came to the Rotary Log Pavilion in Aberdeen for his town hall style meeting today and talked about many issues including the budget and the crude oil export project that could be coming to the Port of Grays Harbor.

Kilmer was asked what his thoughts on the potential environmental impact of the project was, and he said that while he is very environmentally conscious for his state he is also aware of Grays Harbor’s unemployment problems. Kilmer said that if the project passes all of the environmental permitting processes, it should be allowed to go through.

Kilmer also talked about the sequester saying that by not getting a budget done; it is anti-strategic to make cuts across the board.
