WASHINGTON, DC (November 14, 2023) — Today, Congresswoman Valerie Foushee (NC-04), released the following statement after voting for a Continuing Resolution that would fund the federal government at Fiscal Year 2023 levels through January 19, 2024, with certain appropriations ending on February 2, 2024.

“Once again, House Republican’s infighting and desire to further their far-right ideological agenda have caused another manufactured crisis that undermines our federal government and the hardworking people we serve.” said Congresswoman Foushee (NC-04). “This bill is not perfect and is far from a permanent solution, but it is critical to avert a reckless government shutdown that would hurt working families, interrupt vital services, threaten access to food assistance, damage our economy, harm small businesses, endanger our national security, and more.

“Congress must govern in a bipartisan manner to enact full-year funding bills that include emergency assistance to our allies abroad, vital humanitarian aid, and will fully serve the needs of our government and the American people.”
