Matsui Statement on Short-Term Spending Bill


Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui issued the following statement on the latest Continuing Resolution to fund the government until February 8:

“This is a Republican failure of leadership. With control of the House, the Senate and the White House, there is no excuse for the GOP to continue to kick the can down the road like this. We should be able to fund the government in a comprehensive manner and address urgent matters like disaster relief, the opioid crisis, Community Health Centers, and protecting DREAMers. I’m disappointed that Republicans have made it a habit of governing through chaos, as was demonstrated through this shutdown.”
