Washington - Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement today after the U.S. House of Representatives passed S. 540, “Clean Debt Limit Increase”:
"Tonight, Members did their jobs by voting to ensure our nation's bills are paid.
"Extending the debt limit through 2014 without strings attached strengthens the ability of our businesses and local stakeholders to plan ahead. I thank Speaker Boehner for his vote and am pleased to see both sides of the aisle come together to pass this important legislation.
