Wyden Statement on End of Government Shutdown and Prevention of Debt Default

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) issued the following statement after Congress approved legislation to end the government shutdown and prevent a debt default.

“With this disruptive and counterproductive government shutdown finally over and the threat of default delayed, it’s time for people to work together regardless of party on the issues most important to Oregonians and our nation - tax reform, job creation and improving affordable health care. I will continue to seek consensus on Oregon priorities including the future of our eastside forests, the Klamath Basin, and bringing some commonsense to the management of our O&C lands. Hopefully, this marks an end to legislating from crisis to crisis.”
