Press Release

(Washington, DC) Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (CA-32) released the following statement on the passage of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013:

“This deal is far from perfect, but it is a positive step toward enacting a long-term budget solution and putting an end to governing in a crisis environment,” Napolitano said. “It is unfortunate that this agreement does not extend unemployment insurance for 1.3 million Americans. We must address unemployment insurance at the beginning of next year and protect those hardest hit by the rebounding economy. It is critical that we continue to come together to find spending solutions for the sake of our veterans, seniors, children, and hardworking families.”
