WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Jim Risch and Mike Crapo (both R-Idaho) released the following statement after voting to temporarily fund the government while negotiations continue for a long-term appropriations solution:

"Government shutdowns hurt taxpayers," said Risch and Crapo. "This legislation will keep the government's lights on while ensuring our troops and border agents receive the pay they have earned. During this time, we will continue to advocate for a long-term funding solution that saves taxpayer dollars and serves the needs of Idahoans."
