Dingell Statement on House Passage of Continuing Resolution
Washington, September 30, 2023
Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-06) released the following statement on the House passage of a 45-day continuing resolution.
“Today the House did what was right for the country by voting on a temporary measure to keep the government open. The way it was done was not perfect - we were given a 71-page bill with limited time to review and vote. But I made a promise to the people I represent to do whatever possible to avoid a shutdown. This bill was sufficient to give us another 45 days to fully fund the government. It protects critical programs that Michiganders rely on, and it protects our national security and economic stability. This process is not done, I will stay in Washington until the Senate passes it, and then we will have to work on a final appropriations package. Funding the government is one of our fundamental Constitutional duties, and avoiding a government shutdown was the right thing to do for all Americans.”
