Press Release

Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) released the following statement after voting in favor of re-opening the federal government:

“On day one of the new Congress, House Democrats passed bipartisan legislation to re-open the federal government. This legislation has already received broad bipartisan support in the Senate and there is no reason the President shouldn’t support this compromise. It’s time to end this needless Trump Shutdown, which is hurting families in New Mexico and across the country.”
