Southerland Votes to Avoid Shutdown, Fund Government


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, II issued the following statement after the House of Representatives approved legislation this week to avoid a government shutdown and fund the government through the remainder of the fiscal year:

"The House has acted to restore certainty for the American people and ensure Washington avoids the possibility of a contentious government shutdown. This week's government funding bill also puts us on the right track to balance the budget in a decade while reducing discretionary spending to a level not seen in years. We have a long way to go to restore fiscal discipline in our capital city, but it's going to take a President and U.S. Senate willing to fulfill their constitutional duties and join us in our battle against deficits and debt."
