Budzinski Statement on Continuing Resolution, Farm Bill Extension

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Congresswoman Nikki Budzinski (IL-13) released the following statement on her vote with 209 Democrats and 127 Republicans for a bipartisan continuing resolution that will fully fund the federal government through January 19th and extend critical Farm Bill programs for one year. 

“Today, I joined colleagues on both sides of the aisle to pass a bipartisan resolution that will fully fund the federal government through January 19th and extend critical Farm Bill programs for one year. While I’m relieved that we will be avoiding a government shutdown for the time being, it’s critical that my colleagues in the Majority stop moving the goalposts and bring forward a bipartisan funding package for 2024. We also owe it to family farmers across the country to get down to business on a bipartisan Farm Bill that feeds and fuels America, drives innovation and helps the next generation get into agriculture. I’ll keep pushing my colleagues to get the job done.”
