MANCHESTER, NH – Last week, the U.S. House of Representatives, with bipartisan support, voted to approve additional funding to address the ongoing baby formula shortage nationwide. A bipartisan group of House members, including Congressman Chris Pappas, also pushed President Biden to invoke the Defense Production Act to address the baby formula shortage, and he quickly heeded their call.
In response, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:
“These common sense, bipartisan steps to address this crisis will help New Hampshire families have access to safe, affordable baby formula. I want to thank Democrats like Congressman Pappas for voting to support this critical legislation, but voters in CD-01 deserve to know if his Republican opponents would do the same.
Will Matt Mowers, Karoline Leavitt, Gail Huff Brown, and Tim Baxter continue to stand with MAGA Republicans and the extreme, right-wing of their party and perpetuate this crisis, or will they support sensible solutions and provide much needed relief to Granite State families?”
