Halt Tax Increases for Sick, Disabled, and Older Americans!

With health care costs continuously rising each year, older Americans who live on a fixed income are disproportionately impacted by these increasing costs. According to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation report, 1 out of every 10 Medicare recipients spend

Cosponsor H.R. 1029 – the Space Resource Institute Act

Since the 1960s, the U.S. has dominated space exploration and aeronautical innovation. Colorado has played a critical role in this success as one of the largest aerospace industries in the country. Stakeholders like the Colorado Space Business Roundtable,
the Space Foundation, the United Launch Alliance, the University of Colorado at Boulder, and Lockheed Martin have engaged us on the newer issue of In-Situ Research Utilization (ISRU). ISRU is the practice of using materials found on the moon and asteroids

Join 80+ Cosponsors – the Horseracing Integrity Act

As the Co-Chairmen of the Congressional Horse Caucus, we invite you to cosponsor H.R. 1754, the Horseracing Integrity Act.  The legislation authorizes the creation of an independent oversight body, known as the Horseracing Anti-Doping Authority (HADA) responsible
for creating and enforcing a national anti-doping program for the entire horseracing industry, including Thoroughbred, Standardbred and Quarter Horse racing, to ensure fair and safe competition across the thirty-eight state-based racing jurisdictions. It will
also safeguard the welfare of the equine athlete by prohibiting the use of medication within 24 hours of a race. We believe our legislation and the establishment of HADA will restore integrity and public confidence in this centuries-old shared national pastime.

Please join Congressman Austin Scott (GA-08) and Congressman John Garamendi (CA-03) in supporting the bipartisan legislation,
Purple Heart Freedom to Work Act (H.R. 2655).  This bill, if enacted, would raise the current monthly disability benefit for combat disabled heroes from $1,220 per month to the statutorily-allowed level of $2,040 per month (Section 223[d][4]
of the Social Security Act; 42 U.S.C. 423 [d][4]).  Additionally, it would ensure veterans who are disabled due to combat do not lose their Social Security disability benefits in cases when earned income exceeds the current, unacceptably low threshold.
