Rep. Scott Peters’ Statement on New Speaker of the House Paul Ryan

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) released the following statement after a majority of the House of Representatives selected Wisconsin Republican Paul Ryan as the next Speaker of the House:

“I look forward to working with Speaker Ryan to pass legislation that helps hard-working families successfully navigate the future and supports businesses as they create high-quality jobs in San Diego and communities across the country. It is my hope that he will engage with moderate Democrats to find bipartisan solutions to the range of pressing issues Congress faces including on transportation and infrastructure and keeping government open. We know that the American people, and San Diego’s families, are best served when Members of Congress work together instead of in spite of each other.”
