DeGette Statement On Continuing Resolution Vote


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette (CO-1) issued the following statement after voting against Senate Amendment to H.R. 933, a Continuing Resolution that funds the federal government through September 30th of this year.

"I could not vote in favor of a Continuing Resolution that fails to reverse the across-the-board spending cuts put in place by the sequester. These cuts, already being felt by Americans in communities across the nation, are bringing dire consequences for our economy and nation's citizens. While Congress has the responsibility to keep our government operating, an opportunity was missed by not addressing the devastating cuts causing furloughs and infrastructure closures across the nation right now. We need to reverse the sequester, and instead take a balanced approach to our budget that makes targeted cuts, while focusing our investments on programs that help our families and communities, and in proven areas of economic growth like medical research, clean energy opportunities, and workforce training programs."
