Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement following the filing in the Rules Committee of the 2015 Omnibus Appropriations bill which includes only short-term funding for Homeland Security:

“Our goal has always been to keep government open, and to accomplish that goal in a bipartisan manner.  We have confidence in our appropriators as they have over the last weeks sought to negotiate a position that represents the values of our Caucus.

“Until we review the final language, we cannot make a determination about whether House Democrats can support this legislation, but I am hopeful.”
