WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today regarding the Floor schedule for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act:
“This week, the Appropriations, Ways and Means, and Energy and Commerce Committees held markups on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to include important feedback from Members to improve the package.  As a result, this legislation will be even more tightly focused on quickly creating jobs and boosting the economy, while making investments to ensure a sustained recovery and a strong economy in the future.  I expect bill text from committees to be publicly available tomorrow so that Members and the public have time to review the legislation before it comes to the House Floor for a vote on Wednesday, January 28th.  I anticipate that Congress will send a final bill to President Obama before President’s Day.”
