Dingell on Agreement to Reopen the Government

January 25, 2019
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) issued the following statement after an agreement was reached to reopen the federal government:

“It should have never come to this. Federal workers were held hostage for more than a month, many told to come to work while not being paid. As this shutdown goes into the history books we cannot for one second let the human face of this shutdown get lost. People were scared to death of how to pay their bills and worried that hits to their credit scores would affect background checks, security clearances, and future employment. All of Congress cares about keeping our nation secure. We have a lot of work to do to regain American’s trust in their government.”
