The government shutdown has entered day 34 and Utah Governor Gary Herbert says he is sorry for the dysfunction in the nation’s capital between the White House and Congress.
“Everybody seems to agree we need to have border security, whether that’s a wall, or a fence, or drones, or boots on the ground…there’s many ways to address [it] and [we’ll] probably have to have multiple [approaches] because of the different terrains and the locations of our border,” he said.
Governor Herbert says leaders from parties need to come together to put an end to the shutdown.
“This is about who is ‘king of the hill ‘. This is between the president and the Speaker of the House and their little food fight that’s going on here as to suppose to good policy and solving people’s problems,” Herbert said. “That’s disappointing to me; I think it’s disappointing to many people,” Herbert said.
The governor wishes everyone well who is impacted by the shutdown.
