WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) today released the following statement after voting against the third Continuing Resolution of FY2022.
“Tomorrow, Congress is set to adjourn for two weeks. Rather than cancel an unnecessary – and unearned – vacation, we’re once again punting on our most basic responsibility: funding the U.S. government. This is crazy. Continuing Resolutions are a disaster, particularly for our military, and if negotiators still can’t reach an agreement five months after their deadline, we need to cancel recess, lock ourselves in a room, and get to work until we’ve come to agreement that, above all else, ensures the Department of Defense has the resources it needs to respond to mounting threats around the world.”
