Recognizing Constitution Day

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congressman Robert Hurt (R-Virginia) released the following statement recognizing the 225th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution:

“On this day, we are once again reminded of the importance of our founding principles of limited government, free enterprise, and individual liberty that so many risked their lives for over 200 years ago. Throughout generations, the words written our Constitution have inspired many across the world to set sail to our shores in search of the liberties afforded to us by this document and it is critical that we remain committed to defending these freedoms that we hold dear. We must not lose sight of the government our Founders envisioned when they convened at the Constitutional Convention and we must preserve our founding principles so that can leave our children and grandchildren a better America than our parents left to us.”
