Washington, D.C. — Today, Representative Peter Roskam voted against the debt limit and funding package passed by the House due to mounting concerns with regard to the suspension of the debt ceiling.  Representative Roskam issued the following statement:

“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.”
