Woodall Statement on Government Funding Continuing Resolution
(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall issued the following statement regarding his support of the House-passed measure, H.R. 719, to fund the government at existing levels through December 11, 2015.
“In the House, we began passing Appropriations bills in April of this year, operating the federal government the way our Founding Fathers had intended,” said Rep. Woodall. “In fact, the House finished more of its work earlier in the year than at any time since 1974. Sadly, Democrats in the Senate have blocked all efforts to pass any funding bill in the Senate. The American people are frustrated by this pattern, and I share the frustration. That said, I’m encouraged by this small progress today, and I truly believe that if we keep our nose to the grindstone and continue leading by example, we will get the governing process back where it needs to be.”
Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes the majority of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process, as well as serving on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and Budget Committee.
