McMorris Rodgers Brings Certainty to Eastern Washington Families

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement today after the House passed the Honoring the Families of Fallen Soldiers Act and the Flight Safety Act:

“Today, the House passed bipartisan legislation that provides payment of final expenses to the bereaved families of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  This will be beneficial to families all across Eastern Washington.  In addition, we passed a bill that would fund the Federal Aviation Administration so Americans can continue to travel without interruption. We are working every day to protect hardworking Americans from the harmful effects of this government shutdown.

“Despite our disagreements with the President and Senate Democrats, I am confident we can find common ground. There are tough decisions to be made, but that’s what Eastern Washington elected me to do. I urge the President and Senate Democrats to sit down with House Republicans so we can work together to solve the major problems facing this country. We're nine days into this government shutdown; it's time for a conversation."
