Washington, D.C.—Today, Congressman Warren Davidson (OH-08) voted against a continuing resolution to extend funding for the federal government ahead of the November 21st funding expiration. The new continuing resolution (H.R.3055) will fund the government through December 20th.

After the vote, Congressman Davidson said,

I opposed this continuing resolution because it is not compassionate to bankrupt America. This resolution fails Americans in three ways: (1) it perpetuates unreformed and unsustainable spending levels; (2) it adds even more spending, which is typical of “must-pass” bills like this; and (3) it highlights that the Democrat-driven impeachment inquiry is overriding basic congressional functions like funding the government and reforming and reauthorizing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA)—which this bill pushed back until March. Congress needs to finish its work by December 20, rather than kick the can down the road again.
