Cosponsor the Promoting National Service and Reducing Unemployment Act

Please cosponsor the Promoting National Service and Reducing Unemployment Act (H.R. 5618) to address one of the greatest workforce tragedies resulting from today’s economy—our unemployed young people—to spur economic growth and to alleviate strain on state
and local governments.  This tragedy is not only harming our young people, but it is also costing our government billions of dollars each year in lost productivity, lost tax revenue and other costs.  Although total unemployment has reached a relative low (3.5
percent), the unemployment rate for young people is eight percent.  These young people have not had a fair chance to use the high school or college education we strongly urged them to obtain.

Cosponsor the Indian Programs Advance Appropriations Act

We invite you to cosponsor H.R.1128, the Indian Programs Advance Appropriations Act, a legislative fix to address the disproportionate harm that delays in federal funding cause throughout Indian Country. The 35-day partial government
shutdown put a tragic spotlight on the clear need for advance appropriations for the Indian Health Service (IHS) and for the Bureaus of Indian Affairs and Indian Education (BIA and BIE). Basic everyday needs like health clinics, tribal justice services, and
social services for children, families, and seniors went unfunded, putting Native American communities at risk. These programs are critical to life, health, and safety in these communities, and the federal government has a legal and moral responsibility to
ensure funding for our trust and treaty responsibilities is not interrupted. Advance appropriations for Indian Country are a promising avenue to ensure that the nation can better meet its commitment to uphold trust and treaty responsibilities.
