Womack Votes to Avoid Government Shutdown

Washington, DC—November 14, 2023…Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released the following statement after the US House of Representatives passed HR 6363, the Further Continuing Appropriations and Other Extensions Act.

Congressman Womack said, “Continuing resolutions are the unfortunate result of our broken budget and appropriations process. This haphazard method of governing has become typical of Congress. However, I voted for the CR today because I refuse to ignore reality. A continuing resolution is our only way to avert a government shutdown—an even worse outcome for America. With breathing room into the new year, we avoid getting jammed by Senate Democrats in December. I am focused on making real progress on responsible, full-year funding to rein in spending and right our country’s financial ship.”
