Rounds votes against continuing resolution to fund government

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WNAX) – As one of the last bills this week, US Senators voted 82 to 15 to approve a continuing resolution to fund the federal government until late November.

South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds was one of the “no” votes.

Rounds says Democrats backed out of the deal over defense spending.

Rounds says continuing resolutions don’t give Senators any budget control.

Congress will be on a two-week break, returning to Washington in mid October.
