Shuwanza Goff, Biden’s new Congress liaison, on the spot as shutdown looms

Shuwanza Goff was in the conversations with Congress leading up to the deadline for the Federal Government shutdown. As the Senate Liaison for the Biden Administration, she likely worked closely with Harry Reid and other members of Congress to identify areas of compromise and ensure that the compromise legislation reached Congress in time to avert the shutdown. Additionally, she likely negotiated with Congress to come up with a strategy to restart government operations while allowing the Senate to continue to debate legislation that could terminate or extend the shutdown. As the liaison, she was also on the front lines of negotiations in order to achieve quick and effective solutions to the budget showdown.
