Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) voted in support of the Continuing Resolution to keep the government open and funded through December 9th, 2016.

“I oppose government shutdowns and know the devastating effects that one would have on families across our district, as well as on our economy and national security,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “This bill keeps our government open while also providing critical resources to combat the Zika virus. Importantly to the North Country, it provides resources to fight the heroin and opioid epidemic that affects far too many families in our community. It also provides an increase in funding for our brave veterans and supports our military families.

“Families in the North Country can rest assured that I will continue to work across the aisle on commonsense solutions and against political brinkmanship.”
