Statement from State Senator James Maroney (D-Milford) regarding the conclusion of the government shutdown:

“I am pleased the government shutdown is finally over and our federal workers can get back to getting paid for their hard work,” said Sen.

This should never happen to our federal workers and Coast Guard members again.”
