House Continues to Offer Solutions to Government Shutdown

Oct 3, 2013

WASHINGTON− Over the past two days, the House of Representatives has passed a series of bills that will begin funding vital government services in an effort to end the shutdown.  Among the bills passed is legislation that will reopen our national parks, support cancer research, and honor our promises to America’s veterans.  Congressman Fleischmann released the following statement.

“As part of our continuing efforts to propose reasonable solutions to the President and Senate Democrats, we have passed a series of funding bills intended to bring this government shutdown to an end.  These bills will reopen our national parks, continue to fight for children with cancer and make sure that our brave veterans receive the benefits and care they were promised.  While Democrats have continued to refuse to negotiate, I am hopeful they will at least consider these proposals to ensure critical funding is in place for sick children and our veterans.”
