Press Release
Washington D.C. - Today Congressman Chris Pappas was sworn in as a member of the 116th Congress. After the swearing in ceremony, Chris is slated to cast a series of votes to make the business of Congress more responsive and transparent. Later today, he will vote to approve bipartisan bills to re-open the government at levels already agreed to by the U.S. Senate. Chris also strongly supports H.R. 1, introduced today, which would end the culture of corruption in Washington, fix our broken campaign finance system, and make it easier to participate in our democracy.
Congressman Chris Pappas issued the following statement:

"It's a new day in Washington, and I'm honored to have been give the opportunity to serve New Hampshire's First District. We must move beyond partisan squabbling and a broken Washington that simply doesn't work for regular people. We must focus on working together to get results that will make a difference in the lives of the people we serve. Today I will vote for bills to re-open the government and a resolution to reform the rules of the House. In the coming days and weeks, I look forward to making progress on other key reforms that will end the culture of corruption, fix our broken campaign finance system, make it easier to vote, and put the power of our democracy back in the hands of the people."
