Congressman Tim Ryan Votes in Favor of Short-Term Government Funding Bill
Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13) today made the following statement after voting in favor of the Fiscal Year 2020 Continuing Resolution (CR); which funds the United States government through December 20, 2019. The CR includes a 3.1% pay raise for our military, continuation of funds for Community Health Centers and other health programs, ensures funding for an accurate and thorough 2020 Census. Additionally, it includes language to prevent $7.6 billion of cuts to State’s highway funding, protecting $330 million for Ohio’s State Highway Funds.
“House Democrats today voted to extend government funding through December 20th, allowing additional time to finalize a long-term funding bill. As a member of the House Appropriations Committee and Chair of the Legislative Branch Subcommittee, I will continue to fight to ensure that our government remains open, and we are continuing to fund critical programs in Ohio and across the country. I was proud that this bill included a much deserved a pay raise for our service members, funding for our Community Health Centers, and funding for Ohio’s infrastructure,” said Congressman Ryan.
