Roskam explains vote against debt increase for hurricane relief
Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) voted against legislation to raise the U.S. debt limit to help pay for hurricane relief efforts on Friday, explaining that the House measure lacks reforms, according to a press release.
“I wholeheartedly support the hurricane relief provisions, which is why I voted for the standalone relief package earlier this week, but I voted against the legislation today that included a debt limit increase because it does not provide needed reforms,” Roskam said in a statement.
According to the release, the legislations that advanced out of the House is a debt limit and funding package. Roskam noted that he is increasingly concerned about the suspension of the debt ceiling.
