WASHINGTON – Congressman Rice (R-S.C.) released the following statement on today’s agreement to fund the government for three weeks while border security funding is negotiated.

“Although I'm glad that government employees will receive temporary relief, this good faith effort will be in vain unless at the end of these three weeks we come to an agreement to fully fund border security, provide disaster relief, and reopen the government for the entire fiscal year.”
