Washington, DC – Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-CA) released the following statement today after House passage of a government funding bill:

“I am pleased that Congress has reached bipartisan agreement to prevent another shutdown and fund key priorities for Ventura County, including infrastructure investment and further securing our borders. It is imperative that the President signs this bipartisan compromise and ends his threat of another government shutdown. Never again should the President intentionally inflict damage on the U.S. economy and use America’s workers as political pawns in order to pursue radical and divisive policies opposed by the vast majority of the American people, including the great people of Ventura County, who I’m so proud to represent.

“This is how the legislative process is supposed to work – compromise and coming together for the greater good. I hope the President will join us in that effort.”
