U.S. House avoids government shutdown, majority of NC delegation votes against provision

The U.S. House approved a stopgap spending bill (277-151) on Wednesday to keep the federal government operating through December 11th.

Congressman David Price (NC-04) was among just four members of the state delegation to support the continuing resolution:

“I once again join my colleagues in urging Speaker Boehner to resume bipartisan budget negotiations and produce reasonable, responsible funding levels that can allow the appropriations process to move forward. Today, we’re buying ourselves a couple of months. Instead of lurching toward another crisis in December, let’s actually come to a consensus on the kind of investments in our future that a great country must make.”

Here’s how the rest of North Carolina’s U.S. House delegation voted:
