Beatty Statement on Passage of Continuing Resolution

On January 22, 2018, Congress passed the Republican-backed H.R. 195, a continuing resolution that funds the government through February 8, 2018. After the vote on the short-term government funding bill, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty issued the following statement:

“I support keeping the government open, but Congress should not be funding government operations on a week-by-week basis that just kicks the can down the road. The House, the Senate, and White House are under Republican control, so I would expect that a long-term agreement could be reached to fund community health centers, natural disaster relief, teaching hospitals, and on a whole host of critical federal government programs and initiatives. We should not have to choose between funding our military and saving lives in our communities.”
