Delaney works on legislative package for “working families”

June 10th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Congressman John Delaney (MD-6) will introduce a portfolio of legislation in the coming weeks designed to help working families, veterans and underserved communities access the American Dream. Delaney’s Consumer Protection and Community Investment Agenda expands access to affordable financial tools for low-income Americans, reduces dependence on high-fee alternatives and predatory services, protects veterans from inaccurate credit ratings and encourages economic development in distressed areas, including both urban and rural communities. 

“For too many Americans there are still too many barriers to climbing the economic ladder, starting a business or saving for the future,” said Congressman Delaney. “Our Consumer Protection and Community Investment Agenda is about removing some of those barriers and giving more people a fair chance at living the American Dream. As a former entrepreneur, expanding economic opportunity has been one of my top legislative priorities and this will take a new package of bills that will focus on encouraging private sector job growth, protecting consumers and investors and making sure that the residents of every zip code are empowered to support their families.”
