Schumer, McConnell Joint Statement Regarding Supplemental National Security Legislation

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) released the following statement today regarding supplemental national security legislation:

“Bipartisan border security negotiations are essential to the Senate’s efforts to address critical national security priorities. Our colleagues are making encouraging progress on this front.

“Challenging issues remain, but we are committed to addressing needs at the southern border and to helping allies and partners confront serious threats in Israel, Ukraine and the Indo-Pacific. The Senate will not let these national security challenges go unanswered. 

“As negotiators work through remaining issues, it is our hope that their efforts will allow the Senate to take swift action on the national security supplemental early in the new year. 

“In the time remaining this year, Senate and Administration negotiators will continue to work in good faith toward finalizing their agreement.”
