Congressman Al Lawson

Representing the 5th District of Florida

LAWSON STATEMENT ON RESOLUTION TO END GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN

January 22, 2018
Press Release

Washington, D.C. —  “I commend the work of both parties in bringing an end to the government shutdown. I look forward to the coming discussions that will address a long-term solution to many of the issues before us — including relief for communities impacted by natural disasters, like Hurricane Irma, funding for our military, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and the funding of community health centers and other expiring health care programs. These bipartisan negotiations are how you successfully govern a society. We must continue to work collaboratively to effectively serve the needs of all citizens.”
