Press Release

Location: Unknown

U.S. Rep. Steven C. LaTourette (R-Bainbridge Township) today voted for a continuing resolution to keep the federal government open and avert a government shutdown.

The measure was approved 335-91, and is expected to be approved by the Senate and then sent to the President for his signature within 48 hours.

The bill cuts $4 billion in spending and will keep the government open until March 18. The House and Senate are working on a measure to fund the government for the remainder of this fiscal year, which ends at the end of September.

"No one wants a government shutdown, and this gives everyone some breathing room to come up with a more permanent solution and finish bipartisan legislation to fund programs for the rest of this fiscal year," LaTourette said.
