Ginger Gibson talked about government spending and spending cuts. During the week the House and Senate approved a continuing resolution to keep the government funded through September 30, 2013, avoiding a government shutdown but keeping in place the sequestration spending cuts. Also, early that morning the Senate passed a budget for the first time in four years. She responded to telephone calls and electronic communications.
