                  IT IS TIME TO REOPEN THE GOVERNMENT

  (Mr. HORSFORD asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. HORSFORD. Madam Speaker, I stand here today on behalf of the 
hardworking Nevadans hurt most by this recent shutdown: The 3,512 
Federal workers in Nevada who are missing out on paychecks; the 34,000 
people in my district who could lose their nutritional assistance; the 
1.1 million Nevada families whose tax refunds could be delayed; the air 
traffic controllers and TSA agents at McCarran International Airport 
who are forced to work without pay.
  It is time to reopen the government and stop this shutdown from 
taking even more money out of their pockets. That is why I voted for 
bipartisan legislation to end this shutdown on the very first day of 
this new Congress.
  It is time to reopen the government and get back to work on behalf of 
the American people and the people of Nevada's Fourth.
