Support Special Needs Military Families – Cosponsor H.R. 6148, the TRICARE ECHO Improvement Act

April 30, 2020

We invite you to become a cosponsor of H.R. 6148, the TRICARE ECHO Improvement Act. This important legislation would provide military families with special needs dependents equitable access to supports and services commonly covered by states’ Medicaid programs.

Cosponsor H.R. 6081, the Holding Iranian Leaders Accountable Act

April 30, 2020

I invite you to cosponsor my bipartisan legislation which would make public detailed information in regard to the corrupt funds held by Iran’s authoritarian theocratic regime. It would also require the U.S. Treasury to brief Congress on how the funds have
been acquired and used. By combining publicly available information with U.S. intelligence, the Holding Iranian Leaders Accountable Act can provide a valuable window into the corrupt business practices of Iran’s top kleptocrats and limit their financial holdings,
which can be used to support and sponsor terrorism.

ORIGINAL COSPONSORSHIP of the bicameral Medical Supply Transparency and Delivery Act!

April 30, 2020

Our country is in the midst of a pandemic that we have not seen the likes of for 100 years. The COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in over a million Americans infected and, tragically, tens of thousands of lives lost. Our frontline health care workers
are doing everything in their power to stem the tide of the disease in hospitals and nursing homes, while essential workers are keeping food on our tables and our homes supplied during this lockdown. Despite their best efforts, the system to provide personal
protective equipment (PPE), sanitizer, testing components, and more
has not been able to keep up with the exponential increase in demand. Our essential workers are being forced to

reuse PPE, lack sufficient
components for mass testing, and are often forced to
procure their own materials due to a lack of a federal strategy.

COSPONSOR H.R. 6398: Get Urgently Needed Medical Equipment to Health Care Workers Fighting COVID-19

April 30, 2020

The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases have exceeded 3.2-Million across the world and 1-million in the United States. Unfortunately, the virus is continuing to spread rapidly through our communities and is projected to soon overwhelm our health care system.
Health care providers are being forced to reuse the personal protective equipment (PPE) intended to prevent the spread of disease, ventilator supplies are a fraction of what experts are pleading for, and testing components are in such short supply that only
critically ill individuals can receive the COVID-19 test. The American people and our heroic frontline health care providers are desperate for the resources they need to prevent, identify, and treat COVID-19 cases in order to minimize loss of life.
