WASHINGTON – On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) issued the following statement on the Continuing Resolution to fund the government through March 11:

“Continuing to operate under the threat of a government shutdown is the height of dysfunction we see every day in Washington. In Wisconsin, if the governor and state legislature can’t pass the budget, we don’t shut down the state government, we spend at last year’s level. This is why we need to pass my ‘Prevent Government Shutdowns Act.’ It would enforce the same discipline at the federal level. It is a common-sense bipartisan piece of legislation that would address this particular flaw and it should have been enacted a long time ago. I did not support this legislation because it continues Biden’s pointless and harmful vaccine mandates. There is no rationale for these mandates and every day we see the costs of them growing, leading to severe worker shortages and supply chain crises across the country.”
