Statement from Senator Mazie K. Hirono on the Continuing Resolution

WASHINGTON, D.C.Senator Mazie K. Hirono issued the following statement after a vote on the continuing resolution:

“By now, we should have an agreement to pass the DREAM Act, reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program, fund Community Health Centers, stabilize the Affordable Care Act, and prevent across the board cuts to defense and non-defense spending. I voted against today’s continuing resolution to send a strong message to Mitch McConnell and the Republican Party to negotiate in good faith to enact these priorities.”
