WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the Democrat-led U.S. House of Representatives passed the Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act. This legislation did not include any funding for the President’s proposed border security initiatives. 

"This week, Democratic Leadership refused to come to the table and negotiate a compromise bill that addresses the humanitarian crisis at our southern border," said Congressman Woodall. "Border security is national security. I will continue to reach out to my colleagues across the aisle and advocate for an appropriations bill that prioritizes the safety of our nation and ends the partial government shutdown.”

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes significant portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties. He currently serves on the Rules Committee as well as the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee.
