WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congressman Bryan Steil released a statement following last night’s votes:

“Like every American, I am frustrated with the current situation and the continuous cycle of shutting down the government over political fights. We need to reopen the government,“ said Congressman Steil. “The legislation voted on the floor last night was not a serious attempt to end the shutdown. Rather than grandstanding, I urge leadership to bring a bill to the floor that can pass through the Senate and can be signed by the President. I’m committed to finding common ground, ending the shutdown, and providing necessary funding for enhanced border security.”
