BUILD act passes House, advances to Senate
Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee Chairman for Asia and the Pacific, Ted S. Yoho (R-FL), applauded the passage of the BUILD Act (H.R. 5105) in the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, which passed the House today. The legislation now heads to the Senate.
“Tonight’s passage of the bipartisan BUILD Act is a perfect example of what we can accomplish when individuals from both sides of the aisle come together for the greater good of the country. I commend congressional leaders and President Trump for their leadership in bringing the House and Senate together to pass this critical legislation.
The BUILD Act is the most significant reform of America’s development finance system in decades. By streamlining our foreign assistance efforts, the United States will be more efficient and effective in how we target our foreign investments around the globe. This reform will create true partnerships between countries and eventually transition them from aid to trade with the United States.”
