Poverty Reduction Bills Pass House with Bipartisan Support - BORGEN
On May 20, 2019, three global poverty reduction bills passed the House of Representatives with significant bipartisan support. Representative Michael McCaul (R-TX), as well as Chairman of the House Foreign Relations Committee, pushed all three bills forward alongside Representative Eliot Engel (D-NY), Ranking Member of the Foreign Relations Committee. This bipartisan effort allowed for all three bills to pass the House with backing from both Democrats and Republicans.
