U.S. Congressman John Katko
Fighting to Keep the Government Open

On Thursday night, I voted with my colleagues to pass a Continuing Resolution to fund the government through next month.
This measure also provides vital, long-term funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), a program I've long championed which ensures access to healthcare for over 600,000 children in New York and nationwide. Additionally, it suspends the Medical Device Tax for two years and provides relief to Central New York manufacturers.

There is no question that we have a heavy agenda ahead of us in Congress, including finalizing a long-term spending plan and addressing the DACA program. I am committed to getting this done. I've signed on to two bipartisan measures which would protect DACA recipients and enact commonsense border security and I'm hopeful that in the coming days, legislators can come together and work in a bipartisan manner to find a permanent solution for this program before the March deadline.

 While I strongly believe Congress must get away from governing from crisis to crisis, it is our duty as lawmakers to ensure that the government is funded and continues to run. This measure now awaits Senate action, and I urge my colleagues in that body to move swiftly to avoid a costly and harmful government shutdown.
