Sununu to Senate: Do Your Job

Concord, NH –Today, Governor Chris Sununu issued the following statement on the continuing resolution fight in Washington, DC:

"Now is the time to put politics aside so that we can work towards a solution that gives New Hampshire's children access to the healthcare they need, especially during their most vulnerable and formative years," said Governor Chris Sununu. "The Senate has the opportunity to reauthorize CHIP for six years – the longest reauthorization of health insurance for American children in history. I implore Senators Shaheen and Hassan to vote for today's continuing resolution. The health insurance of 14,727 Granite State children will be impacted by your vote. Adequate military funding will be impacted by your vote. DACA is a serious issue that should be addressed, but not at the expense of shutting down the federal government and jeopardizing children's healthcare."
