WASHINGTON, D.C. – In a House Republican press conference today, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) discussed the new opportunities for the people of Eastern Washington being brought forth in the new Congress

Remarks as Prepared for Delivery:

“Good morning! Today marks an important beginning.  The beginning of a new year, a new Congress, and for people in every corner of this country. This is the first week of America’s New Congress, and we’re already putting forward solutions to get people back to work, promote our veterans, expand energy production, and help middle-class Americans bring home more take-home pay. And these solutions are just the beginning – the beginning of a Congress that will be both bold and unwavering in its commitment to help the American people.

“Last night, my husband and three kids joined me as I took my sixth oath of office to serve the people of Eastern Washington in Congress.  And as I took that oath, I was reminded of why we are all here: to advance solutions that makes people’s lives better. And that is our vision for America’s New Congress.”
