Senator David Perdue Votes To Fully Reopen Government, Fund Border Security & Disaster Relief

“In the real world, both sides have to negotiate to find a solution.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue supports President Trump’s compromise proposal to fully reopen the federal government and fund both border security and disaster relief for Georgia:

“Many of us fought to keep the Senate in session last August to avoid this funding situation in the first place. President Trump has tried to reopen negotiations with a reasonable proposal that not only fully funds the federal government, but also addresses critical border security and disaster relief. It is unacceptable that Senate Democrats continue to reject every opportunity to compromise in good faith. In the real world, both sides have to negotiate to find a solution. It’s time to work together to tackle these national priorities.”
