HYDE-SMITH STATEMENT ON AGREEMENT TO END PARTIAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) today issued the following statement after President Trump announced an agreement to end the partial government shutdown with a continuing resolution extending through Feb. 15.
“I respect the President’s decision to reopen closed portions of the federal government and end the hardship the shutdown has caused many people in Mississippi and around the country. We’ll have three weeks to work together to complete the 2019 appropriations process with funding for stronger border security and other national priorities. This will require Democrats to negotiate in good faith with President Trump and Republicans for the common good of our citizens.”
Hyde-Smith serves on the Senate Appropriations Committee and supports the President’s fight for improved border security.
