Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on Senator McConnell's decision to extend the summer legislative session:

"I commend Senator McConnell for extending the summer legislative session in the face of unprecedented Democratic obstruction. Though August typically provides an opportunity to hear directly from Arkansans across the state, there's simply too much work left to do-in particular, the Senate needs to fund our troops and confirm nominees to the courts and critical government offices."
