Congressman David Rivera (FL-25) released the following statement after the House approved the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act today.
"The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act was approved with an overwhelming bipartisan majority in the House of Representatives today because it accomplishes important objectives in a responsible way. This legislative package keeps interest rates on student loans low for another year and reauthorizes the National Flood Insurance Program--giving peace of mind to many of my constituents. The bill also implements enhancements and consolidation measures to streamline our nation's transportation programs and give state and local governments more control over their funds. Most importantly, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act is fully paid for and does not raise taxes on the American people."
