WASHINGTON, DC: Today, Congresswoman Kiggans (VA-02) released the following statement upon the passage of H.R. 5860, which fully funds the United States Government through November 17, 2023.

“Despite the frustrating and disappointing week, I’m glad that we were able to come together – on this last day before a potential shutdown – to fund our government.Simply put, a shutdown would have been a disaster for the people of Southeast Virginia and our nation. I’m confident that over the next 45 days, the People’s House will be able to pass all 12 funding bills, make commonsense spending cuts, preserve our national defense, secure our border, and put our economy back on the right track.

“I would like to thank every member on both sides of the aisle who came together to support my Pay Our Troops Act and provide financial certainty to our servicemembers. I will continue to be a loud advocate for our military men and women in Congress.

“I urge my colleagues in the Senate to pass this funding without delay.”
