MCC is thankful for @JoaquinCastrotx & @RepYoungKim's support of HR 8463, as well as @RepGregoryMeeks, @RepHoulahan, & @RepMalliotakis for being original cosponsors of the bill. We look forward to working with the Senate to ensure it passes Congress and @POTUS signs it into law.
Over the last 18 years, @MCCgov’s targeted partnerships have enabled lasting progress in the fight against global poverty. Today, the House passed my bill with @RepYoungKim to expand MCC's ability to partner with countries where it can do the most good. castro.house.gov/media-cente…
