Bishop Votes to Keep Government Open
WASHINGTON – Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) released the following statement after casting a vote for the Extension of Continuing Appropriations Act, H.R. 195:
“Tonight, the House did its job. Historically, shutdowns haven’t solved problems or broken impasses, but rather have hurt Americans. Now, Democrats in the Senate must care more about people than political grandstanding.
This bill will keep the government open, fund the military, extend CHIP, and stop the medical device tax. Not a bad compromise.”
