Adams Opposes Another Three Week Stopgap Spending Bill

Jan 22, 2018
Press Release

Washington, D.C.—Today, Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) released the following statement after she voted against another three week continuing resolution:

 

“This is a critical moment in American history where we must decide whether to stand up for our values or give in to Congressional Republican’s immoral failure to address the challenges facing our nation,” said Congresswoman Adams. “Today, I joined the Congressional Black Caucus in voting ‘NO’ on yet another continuing resolution that neglects to fund community health centers and teaching hospitals, ignores the needs of our veterans, lacks crucial disaster relief aid, fails to protect DREAMers and again, abandons a long term solution to avert another government shutdown in a matter of weeks. It’s past time we stop governing from crisis to crisis and come together to find a long term funding solution that prioritizes our values and ensures the safety and security of all Americans.”
