Comptroller DiNapoli Statement on Federal Government Shutdown

 

There are no winners in Washington's self-imposed shutdown. The American people are the biggest losers. This avoidable crisis has real consequences for real people and for our already fragile economy. At a time when New York's fiscal state is in recovery, a prolonged crisis could set us backward. It’s time for leaders of both the House and the Senate to put politics aside and get back to work.

New York’s Congressional delegation continues to work diligently to resolve this standoff, and I applaud them for their determined efforts.
