Rep. Ron Kind Votes to Keep the Government Open

La Crosse – Today, the United States Congress passed the final bipartisan appropriation package for the fiscal year, narrowly avoiding the second government shutdown of 2019. U.S. Rep. Ron Kind released the following statement:

“While I am encouraged that Congress has worked together to keep the lights on and avoid another government shutdown, I am disappointed that we didn’t take this opportunity to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

During the last shutdown, I unveiled a plan that would keep the government open and fix our broken immigration system. Unfortunately, Congress continues to keep kicking the can down the road and not solve these issues that need to be fixed.”
