Nebraska congressman Don Bacon shares thoughts on funding the government before the November election

 

Congress has only a few days left in Washington before the November election, and they must fund the government before leaving.

Tuesday afternoon, Don Bacon addressed the media from his office in Washington, D.C., stating that the U.S. Senate is running the process and he does not even know what is in the bill.

“The Democrats want to add more to the package, and the Republicans want a clean (continuing resolution) to get us through the election.” Therefore, I do not know the outcome, but I anticipate receiving the information on Friday. If we don’t receive it by Friday, classes will resume on Saturday, according to Bacon.

In addition, Bacon discussed Iran, a recent neighborhood grant in South Omaha, and the completion of the runway at Offutt Air Force Base. Friday will be a celebration for the new $165 million runway, which was deteriorating before the renovation.

Bacon, who was stationed at Offutt twice, stated that he still had remnants of the previous structure in his office.

How likely is it that the Air Force will maintain Offutt Air Force Base if we have such a subpar runway? stated Bacon.

Finally, he elaborated on why he voted “no” on the Electoral County Act, which harmonizes the procedure of the 6th of January, when Congress certifies the Presidential election.

Bacon stated that he will likely support it when it returns once the Senate and House legislation have been joined. According to him, the House version has provisions that would have federalized elections.

“What we truly needed was clarification of the vice president’s function,” stated Bacon.

After this week, Bacon will spend the remainder of the election campaigning in the Omaha region.
