Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) issued the following statement regarding her vote on the Fiscal Year 2015 Continuing Resolution and Omnibus Appropriations Act:

“I voted for the FY2015 funding bill because it would be irresponsible to shut down the federal government, which could send our economy back into recession. The last shutdown cost the economy $24 billion and furloughed 818,000 workers. While this bill is certainly flawed, I could not in good conscience support putting our fragile economic recovery, and the jobs in Ventura County that might be impacted by a shutdown, in jeopardy.”
