Blunt Rochester Issues Statement on Agreement to Reopen Government
WILMINGTON, DE – Today, Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester (DE-AL) issued the following statement following President Trump’s decision to support a continuing resolution that would end the partial government shutdown.
“I am pleased that an agreement to reopen the federal government has finally been reached. Most importantly, I am pleased that America’s public servants can return to work and receive the pay they deserve – that’s the real victory here. Now, it is time for members of both parties to come to the table in good faith to negotiate a sustainable, long-term solution for border security.
“This shutdown has been an embarrassing episode in our nation’s history and has had a profound impact on Americans across the country. It is my hope that this agreement represents a step in the direction of bipartisanship and responsible governance, and a step away from the dysfunction that has recently plagued our government. Let’s get on with the people’s work.”
