Tester: Congress Must Stop Governing with “Band-Aid Budgets”

(U.S. Senate)-Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement after voting for the short term budget to keep the government funded through April:

“This bill falls short when it comes to making responsible investments in Montana’s counties, schools, and infrastructure. But ultimately our economy can’t afford another government shutdown and the American people expect Congress to govern. It’s my hope that moving forward Washington will start working together to give our families, small businesses, and economy more certainty.”
