WASHINGTON – Congressman Tom Reed is calling on his legislative colleagues to return to the Nation’s Capital to resume discussions, and ultimately pass, a second stimulus package.

The Republican Corning native was asked by a regional reporter Thursday where negotiations stand regarding the package. Reed says that he is keeping the details of the talks private while adding that the American people need both Congressional chambers to reconvene for further discussions. He says he has “hope” that a deal will be struck.

“I just encourage folks to continue those communications and get back in the room because the American people deserve Congress to do its job,” Reed said. “…It’s just time that we don’t have to play politics all the time and worry about elections, and that’s what’s really taking over a lot of the conversations by the folks that are involved here.”

“The bottom line is, and the hope that I have is, people really remember why they ran for office, and why they’re in the position of being an elected official. And that is to do the work for the people back home. And they need it now more than ever.”

The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to return from its August session on Saturday.
