CLINTON, MD - This afternoon, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) attended the Greater Prince George's Business Roundtable's annual meeting. The Greater Prince George's Business Roundtable is a non-profit business alliance of Chief Executives and works to foster a better economic environment in Prince George's County. Members of the Roundtable employ nearly 60,000 people in the region.
"I appreciated the opportunity to join business leaders from around Prince George's County this afternoon and thank them for the work they do to make our County a great place to live and work," said Congressman Hoyer. "I'm proud to represent Prince George's County, and one of my top priorities in Congress continues to be growing jobs in the region while making economic opportunity accessible to all residents.”
"In the first year of the Democratic Majority, the House took action for the people, including passing legislation to raise wages, ensure equal pay for equal work, lower health care and prescription drug costs, and expand retirement security. We will build on that work in the new year and continue to push to rebuild our nation’s infrastructure, make education affordable and accessible, and address rising health care costs," continued Congressman Hoyer. "I look forward to working with business and community leaders in the Fifth District to support workers and promote business development in Prince George's County."
