Supports Funding to Keep National Parks Open, Continue Pay for Military and Border Patrol
U.S. SENATE – U.S.Senator Steve Daines today issued the following statement after voting to support the short-term continuing budget resolution, avoid a government shutdown and ensure our military and border patrol agents get paid.
“Shutting down the government is not the answer to Congress’ fiscal insanity and it only hurts Montanans,” said Daines.“I voted to keep the government open, keep our National Parks open, pay our military and border patrol agents and continue a much-deserved increase in pay for our Montana wildland firefighters. Montanans should never have to pay the price for Congress’ broken budget process. I will continue to fight to restore order to our budget process and secure Biden’s out-of-control southern border.”
