Senator Cardin on Ending Government Shutdown

Washington, D.C. (KK) – A deal has been reached in the Senate to fund the federal government through February 8. Senator Ben Cardin says he’s hoping upcoming spending bills include immigration reform. Senator Cardin says it’ll take a lot more work to produce a balanced budget.

“Four months into the fiscal year, Republicans, who control the White House and both houses of Congress, finally understand that we cannot govern from continuing resolution to continuing resolution. It took extreme measures to get us to this point. Leader McConnell will be held to his word that we will have a spending bill that addresses both defense and non-defense priorities, along with a fair opportunity to pass immigration reform,” said Senator Cardin.
