WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-47), member of the bicameral, bipartisan Joint Economic Committee, issued the following statement regarding news that the unemployment rate continued to decline in March and the economy added 216,000 private sector jobs.
“Today’s jobs report shows that our nation’s job market continues to improve. This progress is more reason why Congress must strongly consider the serious job losses that would be caused by the Republicans’ proposed spending plan, which many analysts believe would hinder economic growth. My top priority in Congress is promoting legislation that enables the private sector to continue hiring more Americans, both in Orange County and across our country. I am committed to doing all I can to continue the positive economic trend we’ve seen over the past few months.”
Here is the Press Release from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez is proud to represent California’s 47th Congressional District, which includes the cities of Anaheim, Garden Grove, Santa Ana, and parts of Fullerton in Orange County. She serves as Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces and a senior member of the Committee on Homeland Security. Rep. Sanchez is also a member of the fiscally conservative Blue Dog Coalition and sits on the bipartisan, bicameral Joint Economic Committee.
