Ranking Member DeLauro Statement on the Senate’s Bipartisan Agreement to Avert a Government Shutdown
House Appropriations Committee Ranking Member Rosa DeLauro (D-CT-03) released the following statement on the bipartisan Continuing Resolution released by the Senate:
“The bipartisan Continuing Resolution introduced by the Senate is a reasonable approach to keeping the government open while we finish our work on final 2024 funding bills. It is not perfect, but it prevents a catastrophic and avoidable shutdown, includes critical funding to help communities recover from natural disasters, and protects national security with continued support for Ukraine in the face of Russia’s continued attacks.
“If House Republicans are serious about finishing final full-year bills, they need to vote for this bipartisan continuing resolution so we can get to work right away.
“I look forward to the Senate and House quickly getting this bill over the finish line and to the President.”
