Press Release

Washington, D.C. - Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement on President Trump's State of the Union:

"The President struck the right tone in calling for bipartisanship. Over the next week, our number one priority needs to be ensuring we fund the federal government. Our nation cannot be thrown into chaos again while our federal workers and contractors go unpaid.

“The President’s call to come together and work with Congress to seek solutions for the American people was right. I urge him to work with Congress on issues such as strengthening Social Security, investing in our nation's crumbling infrastructure, and making health care more accessible and affordable. Now the real work begins, and it will be judged by our actions and deeds, not just by promises and words.”
