McMorris Rodgers Applauds Bipartisan Stimulus Package

(Washington, D.C.) Today, Republican and Democratic leaders in the U.S. House announced a bipartisan economic stimulus package. “This is a perfect example of how both parties can come together to work for the greater good of Eastern Washington and the rest of America,” Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers says.

Today’s agreement, in principal, calls for rebate checks up to $600 for individuals and $1,200 for couples, as well as tax relief for employers – and doesn’t contain unneeded spending or tax increases. Leaders must still bring the bill to the House floor for consideration.

“I will do my best to make sure the bipartisanship continues as we debate the bill – and afterward,” McMorris Rodgers says. “Working together is the best way to increase access to affordable, quality healthcare, find solutions to the high energy prices we all face and help keep our nation and communities safe.”
