“Congressman Trent Kelly will be a strong voice on the House Budget Committee in standing up for working-class Americans and advocating on behalf of our military members and their families,” Ranking Member Jason Smith said. “Together, we will work to advance solutions that strengthen Main Street America.” 

“As members of the House Budget Committee, it is our duty to be fiscally conservative, wisely spending taxpayer dollars when and where they are needed most,” Rep.
