HARRISBURG – Rep. Matthew Dowling (R-Fayette/Somerset) issued the following statement regarding today’s unrest at the U.S. Capitol:

“Americans have the right to protest – peacefully. This is a right I have defended for all citizens. What is happening in Washington, D.C., right now is no longer peaceful and – like any protest that uses violence – only hurts the cause of those causing that violence. This must stop and our democratic process must be protected.”
