Boozman and Womack Comment on Temporary Government Reopening

News

Senator John Boozman and Congressman Steve Womack both commented the government temporarily reopening.

Boozman said in part: “This announcement is a promising step. Hundreds of thousands of federal employees have missed paychecks, and Arkansans who rely on shuttered agencies have experienced unnecessary anxiety as a result of this partial shutdown. We can — and must — resolve our differences over border security without this extra turmoil.”

Congressman Steve Womack mirrored Boozman’s comments, saying: “Over the next few weeks, both parties have the opportunity to work together and reach a long-term agreement. President Trump has shown a great willingness to compromise. I hope Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are capable of doing the same. I remain committed to fully funding the government and securing our border.”
