WASHINGTON, D.C. ā€“ Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after voting in support of a continuing resolution (CR) to fund government operations through February 8, 2018:

ā€œI am glad Senate Democrats did the right thing and abandoned their ill-conceived Schumer shutdown and voted with Republicans to reopen the government. One thing is clear: the American people do not like shutting down the government and not paying our troops in an attempt to secure amnesty for those here illegally. We owe it to every American to come together and do what's right by reopening the government and reauthorizing CHIP, so we can turn our attention to doing the job our constituents sent us to do, including increasing funding for our national defense; improving our border security; and ensuring our nationā€™s veterans have adequate resources.ā€
