LA PLATA, MD - Today, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) attended a Charles County Commissioners meeting with Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) to discuss a variety of issues facing Charles County and provide an update on the federal legislative agenda.
"I've been proud to work together with Senator Cardin and the Charles County Commissioners throughout my time in Congress to improve the lives of families in Southern Maryland," said Congressman Hoyer. "We've worked hard to grow our local economy, support job creation, and expand opportunity. I'm proud of the work we've done to upgrade our roads and bridges, save thousands of jobs at Indian Head Naval Surface Warfare Center, and secure opportunity-zone designations in Charles County."
"However, there is still work to be done to support job creation and ensure more families in Charles County can get ahead," continued Congressman Hoyer. "In Congress, I am hard at work with my colleagues to advance legislation to raise wages, expand access to quality, affordable health care, lower the cost of prescription drug prices, and rebuild our infrastructure. I thank the Commissioners for taking time to discuss their priorities and how we can continue our partnership to serve the people of Charles County."
