Support American Workers: Cosponsor the Buy America 2.0 Act

As you know, we face an infrastructure crisis of historic proportions.  Although it’s reassuring to see bipartisan agreement about the need to address this pressing challenge, a truly American infrastructure proposal must also boost American workers.  Despite
all the talk, the President’s infrastructure proposal was silent on Buy America.  So, I introduced H.R. 2755, the Buy America 2.0 Act, to require that all federally-funded infrastructure projects use materials made here in America.  The legislation is supported
by the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers, Alliance for American Manufacturing, BlueGreen Alliance, AFL-CIO, and Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO.  I encourage you to sign on as a cosponsor.

Help Protect Communities From Violence

wondering whether or not they will be the next target of a mass casualty event. Unfortunately, this reality exists in our country. Over the last several years, communities across the country have endured too many unspeakable acts of violence in places once
thought to be safe.

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
to replace materials that have otherwise been found on Earth.
