LAMB STATEMENT ON DEAL TO TEMPORARILY REOPEN THE GOVERNMENT
(WASHINGTON, DC) – Representative Conor Lamb (PA-17) issued the following statement regarding the temporary deal to reopen the government:
"This shutdown has been a nightmare for hundreds of thousands of federal employees, their families, and the millions of Americans who rely on our federal workforce. I’m relieved it is finally coming to an end so people can go back to work and get paid for the work they've done.
"I’m grateful to those in Congress who repeatedly crossed party lines to support this bipartisan solution and end the shutdown, and I hope that spirit of bipartisanship continues over the next three weeks as we negotiate on the most effective ways to secure the border.
"We don’t need another shutdown or the declaration of a national emergency. We just need to talk to experts, look at the facts and do what we were sent here to do – compromise and get things done."
