Granger Remarks During Floor Consideration of H.R. 7463, The Extension of Continuing Appropriations and Other Matters Act

Feb 29, 2024

Madam Speaker, I rise today in support of this short-term continuing resolution. This bill extends government funding until March 8th for four bills and March 22nd for the others.  

Given the differences between this year’s House and Senate bills, we knew finding common ground would not be easy. But, we've made progress, and we need a few more weeks to finish drafting the bills. We also need to give members adequate time to review them. 

In the meantime, we can’t afford a harmful government shutdown. I urge my colleagues to support this CR, and I reserve the balance of my time.
