Griffith Statement on H.R. 8294

Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement after voting against H.R. 8294:

“I believe apprenticeships provide valuable education opportunities. I cannot support H.R. 8294 or its Republican alternative, however, because they spend billions of dollars of taxpayer money during a time of significant emergency spending. Congress has already passed trillions of dollars in response to the coronavirus, and more relief bills responding to this emergency are likely yet to come. While the pandemic continues, we should not be adding to the country’s substantial debt burden by voting for higher spending for new or expanded programs.”
