Washington, DC - Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) voted in support of the Continuing Resolution to fund the government through January 19th and H.R. 4667 – the Emergency Disaster Aid Package.
“This funding measure allows the government to continue its operations through the holidays as we finalize a longer term spending plan,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I’m pleased this included important extensions for the Children’s Health Insurance Program and for Community Health Center funding that I’ve fought to protect. We also passed legislation to provide needed disaster relief for the devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as the California wildfires. As the full funding bill is negotiated and written, I will continue fighting for North Country priorities.”
Congresswoman Stefanik and her colleagues in the House passed an appropriations package for the full year this past September. Additionally, Congresswoman Stefanik was instrumental in the House passing a long-term CHIP reauthorization in November that included a two year extension of funding for Community Health Centers.
