WASHINGTON – This evening, United States Congressman David G. Valadao (CA-21) voted to prevent a government shutdown by maintaining current funding for the federal government.

H. J. Res, 125, the Continuing Resolution (CR) is a short-term spending package to provide the federal government with funding through February 16, 2018.

In addition to continuing government funding, H. J. Res, 125 includes language to extend the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for six years and extensions of several healthcare related tax provisions.

Congressman Valadao, who serves on the House Appropriations Committee, stated, “Our nation faces tough challenges that require difficult decision making. However, failing to ensure our nation’s children have the healthcare they depend on and deserve is irresponsible and wrong." He continued, “I am optimistic the Senate will pass this bill so that Congress and the Administration may move forward with a spending package for FY2018.”

H. J. Res, 125 passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 230 to 197 and was sent to the Senate for further consideration.

Congressman David G. Valadao represents the 21st Congressional District, which includes Kings County and portions of Fresno, Tulare, and Kern Counties.
