WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement tonight on the Senate passage of a short-term funding bridge to prevent a government shutdown:

“The goal of the short-term continuing resolution passed tonight is to provide sufficient time for the finishing touches to be put on an announced agreement between Republican and Democrat leaders on a longer-term spending measure for the remainder of fiscal year 2011. I am anxious to see the details of this agreement and hope it includes the necessary spending cuts. We need to move on to the significant discussion of reducing spending in 2012 and beyond, and set our country on the path toward a stronger economy and more jobs.”
