National League Of Cities Statement Following U.S. House Of Representatives Passage Of Bipartisan Budget Accord

WASHINGTON, Dec. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following the passage of the bipartisan budget accord by the U.S. House of Representatives earlier tonight, National League of Cities (NLC) President Chris Coleman, mayor, Saint Paul, Minn. released the following statement:

"We commend the House for passing a budget deal that will allow Congress to concentrate on the critical issues facing the American people. Cities and their residents need Washington to focus on promoting economic growth and prosperity, fixing the nation's broken immigration system and providing an equal playing field so that Main Street retailers can remain competitive with online retailers.

"With this vote, we hope Congress will restore some certainty to a broken budgeting process that has kept local partners guessing and created economic uncertainty throughout the long economic recovery. We call on the U.S. Senate to take swift action and work to end the unnecessary and counterproductive fiscal fighting that we have seen over the past year." 

The National League of Cities (NLC) is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities. NLC is a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans.
