"If we are to have any hope of avoiding a Continuing Resolution on these bills, House Republicans must drop their insistence on poison pill riders that threaten our air and water and weaken protections for American consumers. Until that happens, we will be forced to keep the important domestic priorities in these bills in a holding pattern. That will deprive American families, businesses, and communities of the certainty they deserve."
