WASHINGTON, July 31. 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA), a senior member of the House Appropriations Committee, issues the following statement:

"This afternoon Senate Democratic leadership and House Republican leadership reached an agreement on a budget plan that – pending our vote in September – will keep the government providing vital services to all Americans through next March. While I would encourage a longterm solution to our budget challenges, this agreement is in the best interest of the American people and it shows – for now at least – that the grownups are back in charge."
