Our North Country Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is one of the minority Republicans who oppose the partial Government shutdown.

Now entering its 21st day, Stefanik was among eight total Republicans who voted on Wednesday to end the shutddown. “Under no circumstances should working people in our country lose out on a paycheck because Congress can't work together,” she said, “which is why I have been a consistent vote to keep the government open throughout my career.”

Earlier this week, U.S. Senator Kristen Gillibrand also voiced her concerns through a video on Twitter. “If this shutdown continues indefinitely, 39 million Americans will risk not having enough food. They will lose their SNAP benefits in February,” she said. “This shutdown needs to end now. It's not right and we need to do better.”

Despite being only a partial shutdown, officials say this is the second longest American government shutdown in history.
