Johnson Statement on Senate Passage of Clean Continuing Resolution
U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) issued the following statement today on the Senate passage of a clean continuing resolution to fund the federal government and avoid a shutdown of the federal government next week.
“The Senate has acted responsibly and passed clean legislation to keep the federal government open and doing the nation’s business. It is time for the House to act like grownups and do their job by passing this simple continuing resolution. The House’s failure to act will shut down the federal government inflicting serious damage to the economy and disrupt services to South Dakota’s seniors, veterans, and small businesses.”
