Heinrich Statement on Passage of Bill to Keep Government Open

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) released the following statement after voting to pass a continuing resolution that would continue funding the federal government through November 17, 2023:

"Keeping the government open today with responsible spending levels is a victory for the American people. It’s also important to understand that this was a monumental defeat for Speaker McCarthy and the most extreme elements in the House.  

"But our job is not done. Now we must return to crafting responsible bipartisan government funding bills and redouble our efforts to pass a more robust support package for our allies in Ukraine."
