In-Depth: House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey (D-NY) introduced this bill to reopen the government through February 1, 2019, and offered the following statement:
“Now in its 24th day, the Trump Shutdown is creating pain and misery for families, businesses, and communities across the United States. The House has done its job and passed six pieces of legislation to reopen the government, but Senate Republicans refuse to take yes for an answer and end the shutdown. It is critical that we reopen the federal government, and these two new Continuing Resolutions offer President Trump and Senate Republicans additional options to end the shutdown while allowing time for negotiation on border security and immigration policy. We should pass them into law without delay.”
President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have said that no funding bills will become law unless the $5.7 billion border security funding request is included.
