Rep. Shea-Porter: Continuing Resolution Avoids Government Shutdown

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter issued the following statement regarding her vote on a Continuing Resolution to keep the federal government in operation:

"I wanted a bill that canceled sequestration and took a balanced approach to deficit reduction, but the last thing our country needs right now is for Washington to inflict greater pain on our economy and our workers by shutting down the federal government. I cannot understand why the House majority repeatedly blocked a vote on legislation that would have stopped sequestration for calendar year 2013. I stand with local workers and businesses in opposition to sequestration's irresponsible and reckless cuts, and I will continue to support efforts to avoid its devastating effects."
