Press Release
WASHINGTON—Today, Rep. Lou Correa (CA-46), the Blue Dog Coalition’s Co-Chair for Communications, issued the following statement regarding the ongoing negotiations for a fifth COVID-19 relief package: 
“Now is the time for everyone in Washington to put politics aside and come to a bipartisan, bicameral agreement to deliver relief and necessary resources as quickly as possible. Our constituents deserve results—not partisan nonsense. Neither the House nor the Senate should go home for the holidays until a bipartisan, bicameral agreement is made and a bill is sent to the President’s desk for a signature. This should not be Congress’ last act in response to the ongoing crisis. A deal today should be a building block toward another deal under the leadership of President-elect Joe Biden.”
