Murray Statement on Providing Budget Certainty Through an Omnibus Spending Bill in December

(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray (D-WA) released the following statement on providing budget certainty in December:

“My Republican colleagues often say they don’t want to kick the can down the road when it comes to the budget—but that’s exactly what a stopgap spending bill this December would mean,” said Senator Murray. “Families and businesses want to see us building on the bipartisan budget deal reached last year and working together to provide certainty for our economy, and I hope Republican leadership can continue to push the Tea Party aside to make sure that happens.”
