Cornyn Votes to Keep Government Open

I issued the following statement after voting to prevent another government shutdown:
A broken process created by years of Senate Democrat control has yielded an agreement that is less than perfect.
Despite this, this legislation slashes spending for some of the President’s most overreaching agencies like the IRS and EPA, blocks the Administration’s plan to transfer dangerous terrorists onto American soil, and alleviates small businesses from some of the job-killing regulations stifling growth across the country.
It also provides a much deserved raise for our men and women in uniform, as well as funding to fight ISIL and support training and readiness at our world-class Texas military installations.
