WASHINGTON, DC - House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today:
“Republicans again refused to work together to help the middle class and continue creating jobs.  Instead they chose to play a political game with a gotcha amendment intended solely to block the COMPETES Act, which is a key measure to create the jobs that will keep our nation the world’s leader in research and development.  I look forward to bringing this legislation back to the House Floor next week, and I hope Republicans will join us in advancing another job-creating bill through the House instead of focusing on the November election.”
