DENVER ~ Colorado Governor Jared Polis released a statement today following the House and Senate's agreement on a temporary funding measure to avoid a federal government shutdown. The agreement will last until November 17, 2023.

Polis expressed his relief that Congress was able to come together and reach an agreement, noting that it would have had a negative impact on the nation's economy and cut off resources for millions of Americans. He also highlighted Colorado's bipartisan efforts in delivering real results, such as responsible budgets, new laws to save people money on health care, and major investments in workforce development.

Polis encouraged Congress to continue working together on a long-term package to fund the critical government services and programs Americans rely on. Earlier this week, he and Governor Spencer Cox, Chair of the National Governors Association (NGA), urged Congress to pass legislation to keep the federal government open.
