Capitol Washington

The Friday deadline for the next possible government shutdown looms nearer and our North Country Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is hopeful for Congress to successfully meet terms on a plan to keep things running in Washington, D.C.

"I voted at every opportunity to fund the government," she said while speaking with WWNY-TV. "In terms of where we are now, I think people understand the urgency of not facing another government shutdown and getting our work done. I believe that the Democrats have to come to the table and show a willingness to support a package that includes border security."

Federal workers were furloughed for 35 days during the last shutdown, which ended just over two weeks ago; the longest shutdown in American government history. Since the shutdown ended, Congress was assigned with the task of coming up with a border security solution. President Trump originally asked for nearly $6 billion, while the latest talks have reportedly focused on a much less $2 billion compromise.
