Costa Votes to Fund Government
(Washington) - Congressman Jim Costa (CA-16) released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed a Continuing Resolution (CR) to keep the government open through December 20, 2019:
"This Continuing Resolution keeps government running and provides some budget certainty to families, businesses and communities across the country," said Costa. "It extends funding for community health centers and diabetes programs, provides a pay raise to our armed forces and ensures states receive highway funding."
"But these temporary fixes need to stop. I’m hopeful, come December, Congress will stop kicking the can down the road and pass a funding bill."
