Senator Stabenow: Senate Republicans’ Government Funding Proposal Is Unacceptable

Thursday, September 22, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) released a statement in reaction to Senate Republicans’ funding proposal that does not include urgently needed funding for Flint, which just passed the Senate 95-3:

“Today’s government funding proposal from Senate Republicans is unacceptable. Help for Flint is fully paid-for and just passed with 95 votes in the Senate.  There's no reason we cannot include urgently-needed funding for Flint - as well as for Louisiana – in the funding bill.  Flint families have waited long enough.”
