Business Roundtable Urges End to U.S. Government Shutdown

January 23rd, 2019

Business Roundtable today issued the following statement urging the Administration and Congress to work together to end the U.S. government shutdown, now the longest in history: 

"Representing business leaders who collectively employ more than 15 million workers in every sector of the U.S. economy, Business Roundtable urges Congress and the Administration to work together to end the government shutdown. The shutdown is harming the U.S. economy and American workers, both federal employees and those in the private sector supporting government functions. The shutdown is also preventing policymakers from focusing on solutions to create strong, sustained economic growth in America. Finding a bipartisan solution will allow the country to move forward with an agenda to maximize opportunities for U.S. workers and support economic growth.”
