After voting to keep US government open, Maryland Democrats say clock is ‘ticking’ on next deadline

October 3, 2023

Maryland Democrats in Washington voted on legislation to avoid a government shutdown over the weekend, but said the clock is ticking on a new deadline because Congress has not completed its funding responsibilities. “The 45-day clock is now ticking and Congress must come together to finalize the FY24 appropriations and a supplemental funding package for Ukraine,” U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin, the Maryland Democrat, said after the Senate and House approved stopgap measures to avoid a government shutdown that would have begun after midnight on Saturday.
