Davis Applauds Permanent Fix to Retired Miners’ Health Benefits
Latest Spending Bill Includes Permanent Fix to Retired Miners’ Health Benefits
U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) today applauded the announcement that a permanent fix to retired miners’ health care benefits will be included in the spending bill Congress is expected to consider this week.
“This is a big win for retired miners in my district and across the country,” said Davis. “They’ve worked hard for these health benefits that were promised to them and I’m glad Congress and President Trump were finally able to find a permanent fix. While I continue to have concerns about our appropriations process, I commend leaders of both parties for coming together to support our miners.”
Davis has been part of bipartisan group of members of Congress fighting for a permanent fix for miners.
Davis has also been critical of massive spending bills instead of passing our individual appropriations bills.
