All four Hudson Valley Congressional representatives voted to keep the federal government open on Nov. 14. Republicans Elise Stefanik and Marc Molinaro and Democrats Pat Ryan and Paul Tonko all voted for "Further Continuing Appropriations and Other Extensions Act, 2024." The bill to temporarily fund the government until the beginning of 2024 passed 336-to-95 with 93 Republicans and two Democrats voting to shut down the government. Meanwhile, The Daily Freeman reports that the group Empire State Voices had planned a protest to demand that Molinaro do whatever he could to avoid a government shutdown on from 3-5 p.m. Nov. 15 on the Rip Van Winkle Bridge between Greene and Columbia counties.
