Governor Tom Corbett today issued the following statement on the end of the Federal Government shutdown and the debt ceiling vote:

“Congress and the President have been able to resolve their differences and vote to operate the federal government again.  My expectation is that over the next several months all parties can work together in a bipartisan fashion to develop a plan to move America forward and to avoid future confrontation that jeopardizes the country.

“I want to thank all Pennsylvanians for their resolve during these past two weeks of uncertainty.  I also appreciate the hard work and diligence of all commonwealth agencies in delivering the vital health and safety related services to all Pennsylvanians throughout the shutdown.  It is a testament to the commitment and dedication of our state employees.”
