Good Progress

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. McCONNELL. Mr. President, let me echo the remarks of the majority leader. As he has indicated, the administration takes a view that if the final appropriations bills pass one House this afternoon--we could have that vote today or it could be tomorrow--but the administration, I am told by the majority leader, takes the view that it has passed one House, there would not be a government shutdown. So I think everybody should be reassured that that is not going to happen. The conference report has been signed and we are moving toward completing the basic work of government through next September 30 very shortly.

On the second issue, the majority leader and I are making significant progress in reaching an agreement on a package that will have bipartisan support, I hope. I think we are going to get to that place. And I share his view that good progress is being made.
