Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement regarding today’s forthcoming appropriations bill:

“As I have said from my first campaign for Congress, I oppose government shutdowns,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “After reviewing the details of the bipartisan compromise appropriations bill, I will vote in support of today’s package that includes border security and will avoid another shutdown. I urge President Trump to sign this important legislation so we can work to fund the government and secure the border.”
