Congressman Schiff on Passage of Continuing Resolution

“A government shutdown would have been catastrophic for working individuals and families, and Democrats in the House and Senate acted with prudence to avert what would have been an avoidable and unnecessary crisis. Once again, Republicans failed to govern, and instead put a cynical desire to gain political power ahead of the American people.

“Now that we’ve averted a shutdown, we must turn our full attention to passing the Build Back Better Agenda in its entirety: both the infrastructure and reconciliation packages. Taken together, these two bills will bring America into the future, ensuring that our infrastructure and our people are equipped to meet the challenges ahead.”
