Gardner Statement on Funding Resolution to Reopen the Government

Washington, DC - Today, Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the below statement after a deal was announced to reopen the government and work to fund border security:


“I’ve been clear that I do not believe government shutdowns are ever the right answer, and I applaud the President’s funding resolution to reopen the government and provide a platform for additional border security funding.” said Senator Gardner. “Today’s announcement to reopen the government and come together to negotiate border security is what I have been saying from the very beginning. Now that the government will reopen, it is time to leave partisan corners, work together to fund border security, and get back to work for the American people.”


Senator Gardner has been working closely with a bipartisan group of Senators to find a solution to reopen the government.
