Kuster, Porter Sign Petition To Force End Of Shutdown
U.S. Reps. Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter of New Hampshire have signed a petition that would force a vote to end the federal government shutdown.
The two Democrats agree that it's time for a vote to reopen the government nearly two weeks into what Kuster called a damaging shutdown that is hurting Granite State families and businesses.
The discharge petition is a special congressional procedure that would allow a majority of voters to force a vote on a bill to reopen the government.
