Senate Minority Leader Commends Re-Opening of Government

January 26, 2019


I am pleased congressional leaders and President Trump have reached an agreement to re-open the government so our valued workers can return to their jobs, receive their much-needed paychecks and feed their families. The critical employees who have been working without pay should be commended for their dedication and patience during the longest government shutdown in history.


The month-long shutdown has caused financial harm to hundreds of thousands of federal workers, and the prospect of this crisis continuing could have devastating effects on our economy, as well as the safety of our country. I urge our leaders to pass a budget and negotiate border security through the regular legislative process.
