WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman Steny H. Hoyer today unveiled his new Congressional website which can be found at http://www.hoyer.house.gov. The new site will make it easier for constituents to learn important information about what Rep. Hoyer is doing in Washington, D.C. and in the state and how it affects Marylanders.
"This website improves my ability to provide information to Marylanders about particular legislative priorities, ways to help them access federal services, and the latest news affecting Maryland," said Congressman Hoyer.
"In redesigning my web page, I set out to accomplish several goals," he added. "I wanted to give the people that I represent the information they most often request in an easy to follow format. I wanted to give our on-line visitors the ability to communicate with me and my staff, and I wanted to help constituents link up to helpful websites. I believe constituents will find this new website easy to use and full of helpful information."
Among the unique features available on Congressman Hoyer's new website are video clips from speeches Congressman Hoyer gives on the floor of the House of Representatives, an in depth Grants Assistance page to help constituents navigate the federal government for grant funding, and an e-mail form for constituents to voice their opinions directly to the Congressman. From the website, users can also find comprehensive information on the Fifth Congressional District and all of the County Governments.
"I encourage visitors to my new website to send in their e-mail addresses to receive congressional updates on legislation moving through Congress and the latest news on my work to enact policies that reflect the values and interests that make Maryland a better place to live," Hoyer added.
