Congressman Don Beyer released the following statement on continuing Congressional inaction in the famous of major public health crises:

“Gun violence, Zika, and contaminated drinking water are urgent problems confronting Americans now,” said Rep. Don Beyer. “The fact that Congress has gone into summer recess without making progress on any of these issues is a stunning failure of leadership. We should not be leaving town without doing the people’s business. These problems cannot wait until September.”

The House of Representatives recessed today, and is not scheduled to resume legislative business until September 6.
