WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Congresswoman Nita M. Lowey (Westchester/Rockland), the Ranking Member on the House Appropriations Committee, marked Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, noting that Congress must reciprocate the contributions of Hispanic Americans.
“September 15 to October 15 marks Hispanic Heritage Month, when we recognize the contributions that Hispanic Americans have made to enrich our nation. From defending the causes of freedom and liberty during World War II, to starting small businesses that drive economic growth, the indelible mark left by the Hispanic community on American society has been remarkable.
“Congress must reciprocate these contributions by making sure all Americans – including Hispanic Americans – have the ability to own a home, send their kids to college and enjoy a secure retirement.”
