CWA's List of the Senate's Unfinished Business

Contact: Stacey Holliday, Concerned Women for America, 202-488-7000 ext. 126

 

WASHINGTON, Sept. 25 /Christian Newswire/ -- Concerned Women for America (CWA) draws attention to work that the Senate has yet to finish in the 109th Congress.  Senate leadership promised to deal with crucial pro-family legislation in this session.  With one week left before Congress adjourns for recess, we urge Senators to protect American families by passing these key bills.

 

“Sadly, there are many unchecked items on the ‘Pro-Family To-Do List’ in the Senate,” said CWA President Wendy Wright.  “American families deserve to have these crucial issues dealt with before Senators high-tail it out of Washington for the election season.  We urge the 109th Congress to utilize this last week of session and show real leadership by taking seriously the concerns of their constituents.”
