WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, issued the following statement after voting for the short-term funding bill to keep the government open.
“Keeping the government open is the right thing to do for Wyoming. This legislation bridges the gap to pay our troops and keeps our National Parks open. One issue that many people in Wyoming are concerned about is pay cuts for our wildland firefighters. This bill stops this pay cut so firefighters can focus on protecting forests and communities across Wyoming. It also ensures a government that is open and working for the American people. Getting this bill passed puts the focus back on President Biden’s failures at the border and with runaway inflation.”
