Rep. Long Issues Statement on H.R. 6201

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Long issued the following statement on H.R. 6201:

“The only opportunity Members of Congress had to review the text of the 110-page bill was 30 minutes before we voted on it. 

“That was after two days of trying my best to find out what would be in the bill and what we would be voting on. With the Senate having all weekend to review the bill, I look forward to them sending their version back to the House in a form that I can support. 

“Americans have faced many challenges since the founding of our country and we have always pulled together to fight whatever foe and this battle against the Coronavirus will be no different.”
