Reid Statement on Sandoval Remarks on Republican Shutdown

Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid made the following statement after Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval held a cabinet meeting calling a government shutdown “catastrophic” for Nevada:

“I thank Governor Sandoval for recognizing how devastating a Republican shutdown is for Nevada. We both agree that this Republican shutdown needs to end. And the piecemeal approached preferred by Republicans would not fix the problems that Governor Sandoval outlined. This is why the Senate passed a bipartisan clean bill to fund the government. We need the House to pass this bill to reopen the government, pay our bills and then let’s negotiate.”
