Statement by Gov. Perry on Possible Federal Government Shutdown

Statement

Location: Unknown

"House Republicans offered a compromise solution that would temporarily address Republican concerns about Obamacare while also allowing the federal government to continue to operate. But the Obama administration's and Harry Reid's my-way-or-the-highway mentality jeopardizes essential functions of not only the federal government but also state services. Democrat leadership in Congress has refused to negotiate, and in so doing is jeopardizing thousands of employees, critical services, and economic recovery.

"In anticipation of the federal government's looming shutdown, I directed state agencies that will be affected by the suspension of federal funding to develop contingency plans to prioritize essential functions and use existing budget transfer authority to allow these services to Texans to continue until Washington gridlock ends."
