Today, Rep. Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (WA-03) released the following statement regarding her vote for a bipartisan stopgap measure to avert a government shutdown:

“Today, with yet another upcoming government funding deadline, I voted to protect Southwest Washington families and our economy from a destructive government shutdown. 

Nevertheless, repeatedly funding our government with temporary stopgap measures shouldn’t become the new normal. It’s why I introduced bipartisan legislation to revamp our annual budget process and finally address our growing deficit for the sake of American taxpayers.

It’s my hope that Congress will continue working to reach bipartisan agreement on full-year funding bills, as well as much-needed support to secure our Southern Border and assistance for our allies Ukraine and Israel to defend their democracies.

I remain eager to work with my Republican and Democratic colleagues on funding bills that prioritize the needs of Southwest Washington.”
