WASHINGTON, D.C., September 30, 2023 — U.S. Senator Katie Britt (R-Ala.) today released the following statement after the Senate’s vote to pass a continuing resolution and avert a government shutdown.
“After completely unnecessary political fire drills, ultimately both chambers were able to come together not only to keep the federal government open but reject President Biden’s misguided supplemental request. Now, we will be able to pay our troops, the Border Patrol, and Capitol Police and help our neighbors in Florida and the people of Hawaii recover. We will continue the critical fight for border security while we work to pass responsible appropriations bills through regular order. In the coming weeks, I’ll work with my colleagues to advance spending measures that are judicious, strategic, transparent, and accountable,” said Senator Katie Britt.
