CRIST STATEMENT ON HOUSE PASSAGE OF CONTINUING RESOLUTION

Washington, DC
- U.S. Representative Charlie Crist (D-St. Petersburg) released the following statement on passage of H.R. 3055, a 'continuing resolution' to avoid a government shutdown through December 20, 2019. H.R. 3055 also provides a 3.1 percent pay increase for our military service members, and fully funds a fair and accurate 2020 Census.

'The People's House has taken action to prevent a government shutdown in November, while also providing a 3.1% pay raise for our U.S. Armed Forces,' said Rep. Crist. 'I remain optimistic that both parties in the House and Senate will come together before the end of the year, set aside partisan differences, and pass all 12 appropriations bills, avoiding a repeat of last year's costly, painful and unnecessary shutdown. We owe it to the American people to get the job done.'
