Friday U.S. Senator Mark Pryor released the following statement regarding his vote to keep the government open.
Today the Senate came together to pass a responsible measure that will keep our government open. A government shutdown would be irresponsible and would put our nation’s economic security and credit rating in jeopardy. The American people are tired of the reckless “my-way-or-the-highway” politics. I’m confident that reasonable members of the House will pass the Senate’s common-sense bill so we can continue to move our nation forward.
