Local News

WASHINGTON – Congressman Vicente Gonzalez joined a bipartisan effort to support the live entertainment industry that has been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a letter to Congressional leadership, Gonzalez and 93 other members of Congress, called for a targeted legislative action to support the industry as Congress continues negotiations on the next emergency relief bill, said the congressman’s press release.

“Due to this pandemic, many of our beloved entertainment venues like Cine El Rey have been hard hit,” said Congressman Gonzalez. “McAllen and South Texas have a diverse music scene and cultural history that, without action, may detrimentally impact many small businesses, event workers, and rising musicians and stars. I gladly join my colleagues to support this important issue that will greatly impact our community.”
