Ruppersberger Issues Statement on Passage of Bipartisan Legislation to Suspend Debt Limit


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger today issued the following statement on HR 325, which suspends the federal debt limit through May 19 and prohibits Members of Congress from collecting their pay unless they pass a budget. The bill passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 285-144 and is expected to be approved by the Senate and signed into law by the President.

"While I would have preferred a longer-term solution, this legislation is the type of compromise that we should be encouraging -- not condemning. This is a new year and members of both political parties should start by working together to address our country's crippling financial challenges. I hope the overwhelming bipartisan support for this bill indicates willingness from both sides to put aside partisan rhetoric and work on real-world problems and solutions."
