Shelby Statement on Continuing Resolution Through February 18

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senate Appropriations Committee Vice Chairman Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today released the following statement regarding the continuing resolution to maintain government funding through February 18, 2022:


“I’m pleased that we have finally reached an agreement on the continuing resolution.  Now we must get serious about completing FY22 bills.  I have said many times that work can only begin if we agree to start FY22 where we finished FY21.  That means maintaining legacy riders, eliminating poison pills, and getting serious about the funding we are going to provide for our nation’s defense.  If that doesn’t happen, we’ll be having this same conversation in February.”
