Washington, D.C. – Rep. Lucy McBath (D-Marietta) released the following statement ahead of the 2020 State of the Union Address:

“As we move into 2020, I look forward to coming together with Republicans and Democrats to address the issues that matter most to the American people,” said McBath. “I came to Congress to be a voice for my community in Washington, and fight for issues that will help make our community stronger. I continue to work toward bipartisan solutions that will make health care more affordable, lower the costs of prescription drugs, prevent gun violence, modernize our infrastructure, reduce transportation challenges, and support our veterans who give so much for our country.

“I know firsthand the pain gun violence can bring to a family. As a two-time breast cancer survivor, I know how hard it can be to live with a pre-existing condition and find quality, affordable care,” McBath continued. “These issues aren’t just a policy agenda, they are something I’ve lived, and I’m on a mission in Washington to protect our friends, our neighbors, and our families. We must all come together in 2020, and I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to find bipartisan solutions forged on common ground.”
