Editor's note: Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz., released the following statement after the House approved a budget that will head off future government shutdowns.

It has not been altered in any way.

"Today, Congress finally did its job by passing a budget. I've often said that bipartisanship is the key to getting results, and we are long overdue for both sides of the aisle to work together. I voted for this bipartisan bill because, although it's not perfect, it's good for District One's national parks, schools, rural highways, tribal communities and defense workers. And it provides more stability for our small-business owners and local economies that were hit so hard by the reckless government shutdown."
