Washington – Wyoming Congresswoman and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) issued the following statement after voting against Speaker Pelosi’s $3 trillion legislative proposal:

“The legislation before the House today was not a serious effort from Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats to help Wyoming or our nation. Instead, it was filled with irresponsible proposals that would reward illegal immigrants, release prisoners, and fulfill other liberal priorities that have nothing to do with combatting COVID-19.

“This approach is not what people in Wyoming or across the country need. We should be focusing on helping our frontline workers, providing additional support for our communities and rural hospitals, and reopening our economy. Instead of coming together to work collaboratively in the wake of this crisis, the Speaker introduced the largest spending bill in history without a single committee hearing or any Republican input.

“We need to focus on defeating the virus and restoring our economy. That requires us to put partisanship aside and work together as Americans – something Speaker Pelosi has demonstrated she is incapable of doing.”
