Statement from the Office of Governor Lincoln D. Chafee Regarding the Federal Shutdown

Statement

As our economy is slowly rebounding, now is the time for leaders to ensure that government's important services continue for our citizens as well as our businesses. We must avoid anything that will slow or impede the positives we have gained during the recovery. I believe that Rhode Island, and indeed the United States, cannot afford a federal shutdown over a budget impasse and health care reform, which is the law of the land. Congress needs to work together and develop a viable solution. I encourage Rhode Islanders and people throughout the country to join me in calling for a swift conclusion.
