Tester Applauds Decision to Keep Congress in Session to Get More Work Done

Senator: Defending Montana in Washington is My First Responsibility

(U.S. Senate)-U.S. Senator Jon Tester issued the following statement applauding the decision to cancel the Senate’s August recess and keep Congress in session through the summer:

“Defending Montana in Washington is my first and most important responsibility. Congress has a lot to get done, including investing in our schools, expanding access to broadband, strengthening small businesses so they can hire more folks, and passing a good Farm Bill that gives family farmers and ranchers certainty. Montanans don’t quit until the job is done and Congress shouldn’t either. I will work with anyone who is willing to keep stacking more important bills on President Trump’s desk this summer.”

Tester has sent 16 bills to President Trump’s desk this Congress. Tester has voted for a majority of President Trump’s nominees and supported all VA nominees that have come before the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee this Congress.
