Cortez Masto Statement on Bipartisan Agreement to End Shutdown

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement after President Trump announced that he would support an agreement to end the partial government shutdown.

“Congress must act immediately to end this senseless shutdown and ensure federal workers in Nevada and across the country receive their paychecks as quickly as possible. Once the government is reopened, the Senate can hold a debate on the most effective way to secure our borders. I stand ready to have this debate and work with my colleagues in a bipartisan way to ensure we have effective security at our nation’s borders.”
