McKinley Says Washington Closer to Budget Deal

Posted: Updated:

WTRF sat down with Congressman David McKinley for an update from Washington on Friday afternoon.

McKinley said that a series of votes took place Thursday in Washington dealing with the budget and said - to their credit - that lawmakers are moving closer to a budget deal. He went on to say that he is willing to vote for a compromise.

McKinley says he ultimately voted against the new proposed budget because he didn't feel there was enough money set aside for major issues that effect West Virginia, such as clean coal and energy technology.
