Washington, D.C. – Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on Republicans’ continuing resolution proposal:
“Democrats offered President Trump a clear path forward to pass six bipartisan appropriations bills along with a one-year continuing resolution for the Homeland Security bill.  Democratic and Republican Appropriators have been ready to pass these bills in a bipartisan way, and we are grateful for their leadership to meet the needs of the American people.  

“This is a missed opportunity to pass full-year funding bills now.  However, Democrats will be ready to fully, responsibly fund our government in January, and we will support this continuing resolution.”
