McConnell Introduces ‘Clean’ Continuing Resolution

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) introduced today a continuing resolution to fund the government at current levels, with no earmarks, through February 18 of next year.

Here’s an excerpt from his floor speech:

“And that’s why today I’m introducing this: a clean, one-page continuing resolution that keeps government funded through February 18th at current spending levels.

“Once the new Congress is sworn in, we’ll have a chance to pass a less expensive bill free of wasteful spending.

“Until then, we should take a step back and respect the clear will of the voters.

“Americans don’t want massive, trillion dollar bills rushed through Congress on our way out the door — they want us to be careful and responsible with their money.”
