Luján Statement on Averting Government Shutdown

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) issued the following statement after the U.S. Congress voted to avert a government shutdown: 

“I just voted to keep the government open and avoid a GOP shutdown. This protects federal employees in New Mexico and across the country. But make no mistake – this was a manufactured crisis from House Republicans who did not keep their word to the American people. The Senate worked on a bipartisan basis from day one to avoid a shutdown, and I will continue to work with my colleagues to deliver long term funding that provides certainty to the American people. I remain committed that Congress must provide critical aid to Ukraine to make it clear that the United States stands for the people of Ukraine over Putin’s acts of aggression.”
