WASHINGTON (September 19, 2019) - Congressman Jim Costa (CA-16) issued the following statement regarding the passage of a Continuing Resolution to fund the government through November 21:

“Funding the government is the responsible thing to do. By passing today’s Continuing Resolution we avoid another government shutdown and buy time to negotiate a long-term deal,” said Costa. “I am pleased this package contains money for the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC), which provides funding for critical Farm Bill programs. I look forward to working together with my colleagues over the coming weeks to finalize a long-term agreement.”
