Udall Statement on Agreement to End FAA Shutdown, Put Thousands Back to Work

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, Mark Udall released the following statement on the temporary agreement reached to put FAA employees back on the job:

"I'm relieved that the 74,000 Americans who have been furloughed will go back to work - as long as the agreed-upon extension doesn't face any partisan objections in the Senate tomorrow. I've been pushing for a solution to this nonsensical impasse because we can't keep doing business this way.

"If we have policy or political differences, we need to sit down and work out a compromise together, not strong arm one-sided provisions into law by holding hostage the jobs of hardworking Americans. This cannot be a precedent. Importantly, we'll be back in the same boat in mid-September when this extension expires, and if this standoff happens again, that could put even more Colorado airport projects and more jobs at risk. That is unacceptable at a time when we should be focused on creating jobs."
