Resolving the status of DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, will likely determine whether the government goes into another shutdown. Feb. 8 is the new deadline for Congress to come up with a long-term spending bill to avoid a government shutdown.

Congresswoman Claudia Tenney was in the local area today to donate one day of her shutdown pay to the Central New York Veterans Outreach Center in Utica. It's about $256 dollars that she rounded up to $300.

Tenney says the House did its part in passing bills related to funding the military, the children's health insurance program and the national flood insurance program.

“We have been the victims of flooding for 2011, twice in 2013, twice this year. So, to me, to shut off funding when we have bills sitting there ready to be acted on by the Senate was really just unfortunate,” Tenney said.

Tenney speaks very highly of the Veterans Outreach Center and encourages everyone to support its local programs and services.
