Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) has cosponsored H. Res. 1090, the “Break the Gridlock” resolution. This bipartisan resolution makes changes to the House rules intended to break through legislative gridlock and promote commonsense governing. This package builds on Congresswoman Stefanik’s record of consensus building that includes being recognized by the Lugar Center as one of the most bipartisan Members of Congress.
“Hardworking families in my district and across the country are tired of the endless partisan bickering that has become far too common in Congress,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “If Congress is going to get important work done for constituents back home, the rules of the House must change. This bipartisan package contains important institutional reforms that will make House leadership more reflective of the entire legislative body, eliminate roadblocks to smart policymaking, and ensure that members of both parties are able to offer amendments to major pieces of legislation. I pledged to be an independent voice for the North Country and will continue building on this record of bipartisanship to deliver results for the families I am proud to represent.”
