Washington, DC – Committee on House Administration Ranking Member Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) released this statement after Speaker Pelosi finally allowed a vote on a clean, bipartisan security supplemental bill to back fund our National Guard and United States Capitol Police. Davis voted for the bill that overwhelmingly passed the House by a vote of 416-11.
“This is a great example of what can happen when Republicans and Democrats come together to support our National Guard members and Capitol Police Officers,” said Davis. “This long overdue funding will prevent layoffs and furloughs in National Guard units across the country and ensure rank-and-file USCP officers continue to get paid. Because Congress acted, the Illinois National Guard will avoid a $31 million shortfall in funding, ensuring operational readiness. I hope Speaker Pelosi will learn from the Senate’s bipartisan success and follow suit when it comes to reforming our security posture on Capitol Hill.”
