Economic costs of a government shutdown

December 21, 2018

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.

A Bold Proposal to Combat Climate Change

December 21, 2018

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.

Save Alaska Native Villages, Vote for S. 1934

December 21, 2018

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.

Become an Original Cosponsor of the Legal Workforce Act

December 21, 2018

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.

Support Equal Pay for Equal Work Become an Original Cosponsor of the Paycheck Fairness Act

December 21, 2018

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.       

Improve Emergency Alerts

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.

Cosponsor H.R. 3222, the Do No Harm Act

December 21, 2018

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.
