Lee leads letter calling for clean Continuing Resolution

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) led a letter addressed to his Senate colleagues urging them to adopt a “clean” Continuing Resolution (CR) free of additional spending and extraneous policy riders. The letter also calls for the CR to carry over into the 118th Congress.   

The letter reads in part, “Failure to stand strong against lame-duck spending and caving to the Democrats will likely worsen inflation, prolong the current economic recession, and advance policies contained in the Biden administration’s progressive wish list.”

Sen. Lee was joined by the following Senators as signatories:

  • Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL)
  • Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
  • Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN)
  • Sen.  Mike Crapo (R-ID)
  • Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL)
  • Sen. James Lankford (R-OK)
  • Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS)
  • Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)
  • Sen. James Risch (R-ID)
  • Sen. Cynthia Lummis (R-WY)
  • Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)
  • Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI)
  • Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY)
