Marsha Blackburn, Colleagues Applauds Office of Management and Budget Decision To Halt City Redefinition

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) praised the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) decision to hold on changes that would have taken away federal funding opportunities from cities like Cleveland, Jackson, and Morristown in Tennessee. The proposed modifications would have redefined metropolitan statistical area requirements and forced more cities to compete for a smaller pot of funds.

The decision follows a letter Senator Blackburn sent with Senator Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.) and Representatives Chuck Fleischmann (R-Tenn.), Diana Harshbarger (R-Tenn.), and David Kustoff (R-Tenn.) urging the OMB to delay the redefinition.
