"President Trump’s refusal to reopen the government is causing millions of American families to suffer."

Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) joined House Democrats in passing H.R. 264, the FY 2019 Financial Services-Treasury Department-IRS Appropriations bill, which would ensure that all Wisconsinites receive their tax refunds on time, despite President Trump’s reckless shutdown.

“President Trump’s refusal to reopen the government is causing millions of American families to suffer. The longer his tantrum continues, the more people will be impacted as tax season approaches and families are unable to receive their hard-earned tax refunds. In Wisconsin alone, more than two million households receive an average tax return of about $2,500 every year. As long as Senate Republicans and the president prevent Democrats from reopening the government and fully funding the IRS, these essential funds are in jeopardy.

“It is critical that the Senate follow the House’s lead and pass this legislation to re-open the Treasury Department, including the IRS; the Small Business Administration; the Federal Trade Commission; and, the Securities and Exchange Commission. The immediate enactment of this bill is crucial to guarantee that Wisconsinites receive their tax refunds in full and on time this year. I will not stand by while my constituents’ tax returns are held hostage by the president and his allies.”
