Lowey Statement on One-Week Continuing Resolution

April 27, 2017
Press Release

Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-NY) issued the following statement regarding the majority’s intention to advance a one-week stopgap Continuing Resolution:

“I am aware the majority intends to advance a one-week stopgap Continuing Resolution.  It bears repeating that seven months into the fiscal year, this should not be necessary.

“Democrats continue to work toward a bipartisan Omnibus Appropriations Act that provides sufficient funding for critical priorities and rejects divisive poison-pill riders.

“By the time a vote occurs on this one-week stopgap, I hope we have made more progress on eliminating poison pill riders and advancing shared priorities.”
