Today, Congressman Jim Bridenstine voted against HR 2028, legislation amended by the Senate into a Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the government until April 28.

Congressman Bridenstine said:

“As I’ve stated before, Continuing Resolutions represent a failure to govern, a failure to represent the people, and a failure to exercise the power of the purse.  In passing a CR, Congress abandons its representational duty and fails to fulfill the role given it by the Constitution.”
