"Remote work continues to be a vital tool that committees and the full House can use to carry out our responsibilities without endangering public health," said Leader Hoyer. "I appreciated hearing from our Chairs about the virtual forums they have led; those events and today's Chairs meeting over videoconference are further examples that remote work can be done successfully and securely. I am continuing to advocate for the adoption of rules that allow for remote committee work and for remote voting."
 
During the meeting, Leader Hoyer had Speaker Nancy Pelosi join to share an update and hear from the Chairs as work continues on "CARES 2" legislation. The Chairs also discussed the importance of being able to conduct committee work remotely, and shared their experiences holding virtual forums and roundtables over videoconferencing platforms.
