Chairman Ryan Statement at Legislative Branch Public Witness Day
Congressman Tim Ryan (D-OH), Chair of the Legislative Branch Appropriations Subcommittee, delivered the following remarks at the Subcommittee's Public Witness Day:
We’re pleased to welcome ten members of the public who have come to share with us their suggestions on how to fund the legislative branch agencies within our bill and how to improve the operations of the Congress. Their testimony will touch on a wide range of issues; each witness has clearly devoted much time and analysis to their recommendations. We’re impressed that we had to turn away more than half of the people who requested to testify. The issues our subcommittee faces reach well beyond the confines of the Hill.
