WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Rep. Marc Molinaro (NY-19) on September 17 announced a deal has been reached between the House Republican Main Street Partnership (RMSP) and House Freedom Caucus on legislation to avert a government shutdown and secure the border. As a member of the RMSP, Molinaro played a key role in negotiating the deal, drafted provisions, and helped find common ground, according to the representative’s press office.
The deal will extend government funding by 30 days so negotiations on a long-term bipartisan government funding bill can continue. The deal also funds veterans and defense programs at 100 percent, funds all other government programs at 99 percent, includes funding to secure the border and a provision that Molinaro ensured inclusion to prevent federal funds from being used on transporting migrants. This provision will help thwart New York City’s plans to move migrants to upstate New York, the press office said.
As of press time, a vote is expected to take place in the House on Wednesday. After it passes, the Senate will then need to pass the measure and the President must sign it.
