Washington News: Pelosi Sends Letter to Speaker Ryan Urging House Votes on Bipartisan Priorities of the American People

Washington, D.C. – Today, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan urging him to schedule votes on bipartisan legislation that speaks to the needs of the American people, including legislation to address the soaring costs of prescription drugs, to rebuild our infrastructure and create millions of good-paying jobs, to protect the Dreamers and to enact commonsense solutions to the epidemic of gun violence.

“Rather than putting forth solutions that the American people desperately need, the Republican Congress is adding insult to injury by considering scheduling votes that are solely political and not designed to address the needs of the American people,” Pelosi continued.  “I am writing to urge that we work together to pass this strong, smart legislation that makes a difference in the lives of hard-working American families.”
