WASHINGTON, DC – Today, House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) unveiled a website sharing video statements from House Democrats on H.R. 266, the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act, which passed the House yesterday.  Members who did not speak on the Floor during debate were given the opportunity to record video statements and upload them with the hashtag #CoronavirusRelief. Leader Hoyer’s website, www.MajorityLeader.gov/CoronavirusRelief, assembles all of these videos in one place to make it easier for constituents and the media to find Members’ remarks and share them. 
 
“House Democrats worked hard to secure significant improvements to this emergency interim funding bill, and as a result, more small and minority-owned businesses can access assistance during this crisis and additional funding has been secured for hospitals and testing,” Hoyer said.  “In order to ensure every House Democrat could make their voice heard, we created this opportunity for House Democrats to express their views on this critical legislation.  We are all in this together, which is why I will continue to advocate for innovative ways for the House to do its job during this pandemic while promoting safety and public health, including remote voting and remote committee work.  I hope everyone will visit this site and listen to what our Members have to say.”
