Press Release

For Immediate Release:

WASHINGTON, DC—Today the office of Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) delivered the Pelosi Healthcare Bill to the Golden Gate, West Kendall Regional and Miami Lakes Public Libraries in District 25 for residents to read and review.  A copy of the bill is also available at Diaz-Balart’s District offices in Miami-Dade and Collier Counties. 

“Despite promises of an open and transparent Congress, Speaker Pelosi excluded the Minority party from giving input and including provisions in her Healthcare bill,” said Diaz-Balart.  “It is important that the American people have the opportunity to read and review the legislation and express their thoughts before Congress decides the future of Healthcare in our country. I encourage my constituents to provide me with their feedback on this bill, and if debate is permitted on the House floor, I will voice their opinions and concerns.”

The details and policies outlined in the nearly 2,000-page bill were agreed to behind closed doors by a select group of Democrats in Washington, DC, but in an effort to keep government transparent and accessible to the American people Diaz-Balart has provided copies of the legislation to the following Public Libraries for constituents of District 25 to read and review:

Golden Gate Library

West Kendall Regional Library
