Press Release

Washington, DC—Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) announced her office will remain open during business hours throughout the shutdown and released resources on her official website to aid Hawai‘i families. Constituents may call (202) 225-4906 or (808) 541-1986 for assistance. 

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is a cosponsor of the Federal Employee Retroactive Pay Fairness Act (H.R.4694) and the Military Pay Protection Act (H.R.2220) to ensure furloughed federal employees and military personnel are paid during the government shutdown.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard released the following statement regarding the shutdown of the federal government:

“The American people are sick and tired of political games and absent leadership. Funding the government for weeks at a time through short-term deals, and then shutting it down, is outrageous and was completely preventable. These constant crises are no way to govern and are a disservice to the people of Hawaii, our troops, and our country. It’s long past time to stop kicking the can down the road, put aside partisan bickering, work through our differences and reopen the government. The American people deserve better.”
