WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Brian Mast (FL-21) and 13 Members of the House Republican Conference called for the U.S. House of Representatives to remain in session until key legislation is passed and sent to the U.S. Senate.
In an open letter to their colleagues, Members reiterated the promises made to the American people, and urged continued legislative action until they were fulfilled.
“In combat, we don’t quit when the clock hits 5 PM. We don’t quit when we're tired, or hungry, or want to see our families. We step off the battlefield when the mission is accomplished and not before…We are calling on the new House Republican Majority to accomplish what we have promised before we step off the battlefield,” the Members wrote.
Specifically, Members called for action on the following issues and legislation:
- Pass legislation to repeal funding for the 87,000 new Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agents;
- Pass legislation instituting term limits for Members of Congress;
- Pass legislation to require President Joe Biden to complete the border wall and give Customs and Border Patrol agents necessary resources;
- Pass a balanced budget amendment;
- Pass the Parents Bill of Rights.
