President Trump said last week that he would be “proud to shut down the government for border security.” Today, he said he would make good on that threat. This is terrible news for working families across the country and for our economy.
Climate change is the greatest existential threat to humankind and it demands immediate action. With the new House Democratic majority, I believe we have a moral imperative to address this crisis.
I would like to ask for your support to pass S. 1934, the Alaska Remote Generator Reliability and Protection Act. This bill is critical to Alaskans living in remote areas who depend entirely on diesel generators for electricity and heating needs. They often
rely on second-hand engines that may not necessarily meet the most stringent particle pollution standards. I am asking for your support on S. 1934. Without S. 1934, Alaska Native villages will be at risk of collapse. These isolated communities are not connected
to the road system, and the bill is essential to keep village health clinics operating, schools running, and maintaining subsistence food supplies.

Due to the retirements of both Rep. Lamar Smith and Rep. Bob Goodlatte, and as the original creator of E-Verify, I have taken up the mantle of the Legal Workforce Act and will be reintroducing the legislation in the 116th Congress. I invite you
to be an original cosponsor of the bill, which has no material changes to the text from its introduction in the 115th Congress. A Judiciary Committee summary of The Legal Workforce Act is below.
Currently, all Democratic members are cosponsors of the The Paycheck Fairness Act (H.R.1869) –a modest, common-sense solution to the lingering problem of pay inequity. We will be reintroducing Paycheck Fairness with
no changes early next Congress and urge members to once again cosponsor this important legislation.
I invite you to join me in improving the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and the Wireless Emergency Alert System (WEA) by cosponsoring H.R. 6427, the Reliable Emergency Alert Distribution Improvement (READI) Act.
When Congress passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in 1993 with overwhelming bipartisan support, the intent was not to undermine civil rights, but to protect them, especially
for religious minorities. Religion is a protected class under the Civil Rights Act, and the freedom to exercise religious beliefs is constitutionally protected as a fundamental American value.
