Young Statement on Government Shutdown
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Todd Young issued the following statement regarding the government shutdown. He will be donating his salary to the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation until the government reopens.
“When given the opportunity to extend the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for more than 104,000 Hoosier children, provide for our servicemembers, lift the burden of the job-killing medical device tax, and keep government functions operating, some of my colleagues took a pass. For reasons I can’t understand, they voted to shut down the government even though they support the bill. I will continue working through the weekend to ensure that a solution is reached for the good of Hoosiers and all Americans. I will also be donating my salary to the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation until the government reopens."
