Neugebauer: Shutdown Unlikely This Week

On Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, Congressman Randy Neugebauer was asked if he expects budget disagreements will lead to a government shutdown later this week.  Neugebauer indicated that negotiators will prevent that, at least temporarily.

“I don’t think it’s going shut down this week,” Neugebauer told KFYO.  “I think they’ve crafted …a compromise with the senate at least for a two-week extension here to bump that forward.  Long term…I don’t know.”

Neugebauer said that Senate Democrats are not offering any solutions, and instead, want to keep funding at current levels.
