Rep. Kind Visits Federal Employees


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Congressman Ron Kind was among those voting in favor of the proposal to end the government shutdown late Wednesday night. Thursday he visited the Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center to thank federal employees for their patience.

Kind said, "I think the American people deserve a much higher level of performance and responsibility from their elected representatives than what they see coming out of Washington today. So I hope that those who supported the policy of shutting things down and possibly defaulting on our financial responsibilities aren't so soon to go and play that hand again when they can in January and February."

Kind says he is working with Democratic and Republican moderates in congress to prevent future shutdowns. Last night's deal only funds the government through mid January.
