Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Stefanik is a co-lead on H.R. 622, The Government Shutdown Prevention Act. The bill, introduced Wednesday, aims to fix the nonsensical budget process and do away with partisan politicking at the expense of federal workers.

“Throughout my time in Congress, I have been a consistent vote to keep the government open,” Congresswoman Stefanik said. “My district is home to many federal workers who depend on Congress to ensure they have a stable paycheck and we have let them down time and time again. This bill is a significant step to end the partisan games that are played at the expense of North Country workers. I’m proud to co-lead this vital and long-overdue bill.”

Since her first term, Congresswoman Stefanik has been a reliable vote to always keep the government open. This is a promise she made to her constituents, and is one she intends to keep. The Government Shutdown Prevention Act is also cosponsored by Reps. Lloyd Smucker (R-Pa.), John Curtis (R-Ut.), Rodney Davis (R-Ill.), Bob Gibbs (R-Oh.), Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), and Fred Upton (R-Mich.)
