Sinema Statement on Vote to Reopen Government

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema (AZ-09) released the following statement after her vote to reopen the government:

“This shutdown was unnecessary and shameful. This is not the way to govern. I am glad a deal was reached to get the government running and ensure economic security for military members, veterans, and Arizona families; however, our work is far from over.

“There are bipartisan solutions in the House and Senate to create a long-term budget, fund our military, secure our border, and protect Dreamers. There is now a commitment from leadership to make this happen. Washington politicians who stand in the way of these solutions should step aside and let us get to work."
