Majority Leader Schumer Statement On The Bipartisan Passage Of A Continuing Resolution In The House To Avert A Government Shutdown

Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today released the following statement on the House passing a bipartisan continuing resolution:  

“In a divided government, both sides need to embrace bipartisanship to pass legislation that can help the American public.

“I’m happy the House passed this bill that excludes hard-right partisan cuts and poison pills with a strong bipartisan vote. I’ll now work with Leader McConnell to pass this bipartisan extension of funding as soon as possible.”
