Hoyer issues statement on Dems latest plan to reopen Government and end “Trump Shutdown”

News Release, Office of Majority Leader Steny Hoyer

WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today announcing House Democrats’ latest plan to reopen government and end the Trump shutdown:

“The needless continuation of the Trump shutdown is unacceptable and detrimental to our nation and its economy.  Democrats have offered one idea after another to reopen government, and we will continue to vote on legislation to end the Trump shutdown.

“Democrats will keep the House of Representatives open next week to continue voting to reopen government.  I will bring to the Floor a package of six appropriations bills that represent the compromise position negotiated by Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate, which is what some House Republicans have said they would prefer to support instead of the Senate-passed bills. 

“While Republicans actively vote to keep the government shut down, Democrats will continue to put forward constructive ideas on how to end it.  I call on Senate Republican Leader McConnell to stop ignoring this shutdown and allow a vote on legislation to reopen the government.”

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account.
