As a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the Congressional Caucus on Bosnia, I am proud to support a strong American commitment to the future of Bosnia-Herzegovina and to celebrate 20 years of independence this month. In the face of great challenges, much progress has been made. However, there is still much more to be done, and I look forward to working with you and my colleagues in the Caucus to promote democracy and prosperity in Bosnia and the United States” said Congressman Murphy in his March 22nd statement to the Bosnian American community in Connecticut.
