U.S. Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) issued the following statement regarding his vote on the Continuing Resolution (CR):

“Widespread inflation is not under control, and Americans are struggling to make ends meet as everyday essentials are becoming less affordable.  This Continuing Resolution does not extend into the next Congress, and creates a pathway for lame-duck, progressive wish-list spending.  Further spending will only worsen and prolong inflationary pressures on the American people.” 

Senator Crapo recently signed a letter to his Senate colleagues urging the adoption of a “clean” CR free of additional spending and extraneous policy riders.  The letter also called for the CR to carry over into the 118th Congress.

***U.S. Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst both voted for the continuing resolution.***
