Washington, D.C. –Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) has recently cosponsored two pieces of good governance legislation, including H.Res.250 - legislation expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Congress should pass no law that would exempt from its obligations or provide any other special consideration to elected or appointed Federal officials or any other Federal employee.

“Lawmakers should be subject to the same laws that they write for the American people, and I am proud to cosponsor this commonsense piece of legislation,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I remain committed to honoring my pledges to the constituents of New York’s 21st district, which means continuing to support this type of good governance legislation and providing transparency to the issues I am working on in Congress.”

In addition, Congresswoman Stefanik recently cosponsored H.Res.17 -- the 'Stay on Schedule Resolution – legislation to prohibit the House from taking August recess unless there was agreement by July 31 on all regular appropriations bills for the coming federal fiscal year.

“I am proud of the work the House has done so far on behalf of the American people,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “We are off to a strong pace passing legislation, but in order to make sure we are getting our jobs done here in Congress, I have cosponsored this resolution to make sure that our work is done before Congress breaks for the August district work period. I pledged to work my hardest on behalf of the constituents of New York’s 21st district and will continue to work to live up to that promise.”
