Lowey statement on GOP Fifth Continuing Resolution
“Four months into the fiscal year, the Republican majority is introducing its fifth Continuing Resolution. As Democrats have said for many months, this is a perversion of good government and the polar opposite of regular order. It is a truly shameful display of incompetence.
“Even now, the majority displays a lack of urgency regarding reaching a budget agreement and enacting Appropriations law, choosing instead to advance partisan measures that fail to lift unmanageable budget caps for both defense and nondefense.
“It is long past time for those individuals elected to lead to do so.”
