Congressman Pallone To Hold Town Hall Tonight, League Schedules In-District Meeting

Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-6) will hold a town hall tonight to update constituents on his work in New Jersey and Washington and to offer attendees the chance to share their concerns.

“As a Member of Congress, the most important part of my job is to hear directly from constituents and to provide an update on what I’m doing in Congress. I’m looking forward to talking about my work to lower health care and prescription drug costs, combat climate change, and fight for New Jersey,” said Mr. Pallone.

The Town hall meeting will be held at the Metuchen High School Auditorium, located at 400 Grove Avenue in Metuchen.  It is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m.

Among other issues, Mr. Pallone will discuss the House’s passage of legislation to lower health care and prescription drug costs and to end robocalls.  Mr. Pallone has also introduced a bill to address infrastructure and recently announced a plan to achieve a 100% clean economy by 2050.

Rep. Pallone chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee which, in addition to having jurisdiction over telecommunications matters, shares jurisdiction over many financial services issues including privacy and data security.

The NJCUL will be meeting with Rep. Pallone on August 29 to discuss a variety of issues including his Stopping Bad Robocalls Act (H.R. 946). League member credit union professionals and volunteers interested in participating in the meeting should contact NJCUL Vice President of Corporate & Governmental Affairs Chris Abeel at cabeel@njcul.org or 609-448-2426, ext. 127.
