WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Kathleen Rice (NY-04) released the following statement after voting in favor of H.R.5376, the Build Back Better Act:

“After taking appropriate time to review the bill and its corresponding estimates from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), today I voted to advance the Build Back Better Act. There are many policies in this bill that will improve the lives of my constituents, especially the agreement I helped finalize to allow Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices for seniors, and the historic investments to combat climate change, the greatest existential threat facing Long Island. While there are still outstanding issues that will need to be addressed before it can be enacted into law, I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Senate to get it across the finish line.”
