Statement by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Senate Passage of the Bipartisan Funding Bill
The bipartisan funding bill proves once more that members of both parties can come together to deliver results for the American people. It will reduce costs for families and businesses, support our economic recovery, and advance American leadership abroad. With these resources, we will be able to deliver historic support for the Ukrainian people as they defend their country and democracy, launch a bold new initiative to drive unprecedented progress in curing cancer and other diseases, and provide additional support to our law enforcement so they can protect our communities.
The bill also ends a damaging series of short-term continuing resolutions that have undermined the government’s ability to meet pressing challenges. We thank leaders in the House and Senate for their partnership in getting this bill done, and the President looks forward to signing it into law. At the same time, we continue to call on Congress to provide the funds urgently needed to prevent severe disruptions to our COVID response.
