Congressman Sires’ Statement on the Speaker of the House for the 116th Congress
(Washington, D.C.) - Congressman Sires released the following statement regarding the vote for Speaker of the House in the 116th Congress:
"As the 115th Congress draws to a close, we must look forward to the issues that our party will focus on when we take the majority in the 116th Congress. Among the many important priorities for New Jerseyans and Americans, Congress must protect and improve access to healthcare, address the student debt crisis, and repair our crumbling infrastructure. Nancy Pelosi has championed these issues and has shown that she can help form a consensus around important pieces of legislation that improve lives in the 8th District and across the country. Therefore, when the vote for Speaker is held, I will be supporting her."
