WASHINGTON, Oct. 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The following is a statement from the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce:
On behalf of the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, we'd like to congratulate Congressman Paul Ryan, who we have collaborated with in the past, on becoming Speaker of the House. We look forward to continue working with now, Speaker Ryan, on legislative issues that advance the interests of America's 4.1 million Hispanic-owned businesses throughout our country. As Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Speaker Ryan demonstrated a keen focus on our nation's fiscal responsibilities, motivated by a desire to ensure lasting economic prosperity. We can think of no one better than Congressman Paul Ryan to currently lead House Republicans and potentially break through the ongoing gridlock caused by partisanship in congress.
