Washington, DC – Dina Titus, Representative of Nevada’s First Congressional District, released the following statement regarding the vote on the fourth short-term continuing resolution to fund the federal government over the last year.


“Congress’s fundamental duty is to keep the lights on and the government running in service of the American people. It is our responsibility to hammer out bipartisan agreements to fund the government, ensure our children have access to health care, support our military, protect our DREAMers, and address the emergency needs of Americans still suffering from natural disasters. Yet Republicans refuse to come to the table. They control all three branches of the government and are still unable to move this country forward. They wouldn’t run their businesses this way. This latest short-term continuing resolution, the fourth since September, does not solve our problems, but simply kicks the can further down a dangerous road of instability and uncertainty."
