Schiff Statement on a Looming Government Shutdown

Washington, DC – Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) released the following statement on the looming government shutdown:

“It is irresponsible to continue running the government in one- or two-week increments, but allowing the government to shut down would be even more irresponsible, counterproductive to our economic recovery, and detrimental to our long-term fiscal standing. An independent, non-partisan analysis indicated that a government shutdown could cost $8 billion per week – a price we simply cannot afford. Now is not the time to let partisan politics get in the way of providing essential government services.”
