NVTC, Members of the Northern Virginia Business Community Send Letter to Congressional Delegation Urging Resolution to Shutdown, Rep. Connolly Pens Response

NVTC and a coalition of members of the Northern Virginia business community wrote a letter urging members of the Virginia congressional delegation to act immediately to find a path forward on a clean continuing resolution and to pass legislation to raise the debt limit long term.

Rep. Gerald E. Connolly responded to the letter, stating that he appreciated the message and is working with his colleagues on “both sides of the aisle” to move toward passing a Continuous Resolution without any extraneous additions. Connolly also urged members to reach out to congressmen and women that do not yet support the measure.

In addition, Connolly partnered with Rep. Robert J. Wittman to pen a letter to Chuck Hagel, Secretary of the Department of Defense (DoD), commending him for his decision to request the furloughed DoD civilians return to work this week.
