WASHINGTON, DC – The House of Representatives adopted legislation tonight that requests a formal conference with the Senate to come to an agreement on legislation that provides funding for the federal government and delays the president’s health care law for all Americans.

“The House has made its position clear: keep the government running and ensure basic fairness for all Americans under ObamaCare,” said House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). “Unfortunately, Senate Democrats chose to shut down the government rather than discuss or even recognize ObamaCare’s failures. The best path forward right now is for both chambers to convene a formal conference committee where we can resolve our differences, and move forward on important legislation that gets control of spending and strengthens our economy. That’s the system the founders set up for us, and it’s what the American people expect us to do.”

Speaker Boehner named the following lawmakers to serve as conferees on the continuing resolution:

  • Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA)
  • Rep. Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI), chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee
  • Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY), chairman of the House Appropriations Committee
  • Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), chairman of the House Budget Committee
  • Rep. John Carter (R-TX)
  • Rep. Ander Crenshaw (R-FL)
  • Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ)
  • Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA)
