DSCC Statement on House Vote To Reopen Services Vital to Key Industries

In response to the House vote to end the GOP’s shutdown of the Interior Department and other agencies, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman David Bergstein released the following statement:

“Democrats in the House have again taken action to end this pointless shutdown, and the bipartisan legislation passed today would reopen vital services — from national parks that drive local tourism economies across the country to support for fisheries in Alaska and Maine. The longer Senate Republicans refuse to take up the bills, the worse it’ll get for their vulnerable incumbents in 2020.”
