Congressman Landsman, Problem Solvers Caucus Release Bipartisan Solution to Fund Federal Government, Prevent Shutdown
Cincinnati, OH – Today, Congressman Greg Landsman (OH-01) joined the Problem Solvers Caucus in releasing a bipartisan solution to fund the federal government and prevent a shutdown.
The Problem Solvers Caucus – a bipartisan coalition of 64 members of the U.S. House of Representatives equally split between Republicans and Democrats – released their plan to fund the federal government and prevent a government shutdown that could begin October 1.
The Problem Solvers Caucus plan would:
- Prevent a shutdown by temporarily continuing federal government funding until January
- Pass a full-year federal government funding appropriations package in January that adheres to the bipartisan Fiscal Responsibility Act that was passed by Congress and signed into law in June
- Include funding for disaster response and Ukraine
- Implement border security measures
- Adopt bipartisan budget reforms to increase transparency and restore regular order
- Create a Fiscal Commission to review and recommend measures to stabilize long-term deficits and debt
“When I took on this job, I promised to be a reliable, bipartisan leader,” said Congressman Landsman. “Now – as we face a federal government shutdown that would be disastrous for the American people and hurt our economy – I’m joining together with Democrats and Republicans to put forward a responsible, pragmatic solution. Our plan would keep the government open, protect Social Security and Medicare, and invest in our children and families. We have to end the chaos.”
