Eliminate PACs and Dark Money from Influencing Our Democracy

I invite you to become a co-sponsor of H.J.Res. 73, which proposes a constitutional amendment to reform our country’s broken campaign finance system. As political spending continues to break records—along with the anticipation that the 2020 presidential
election will be the most expensive in American history—it is imperative that we take meaningful action to address the undue influence of money and special interests on our political process.

Restoring the Partnership for County Health Care Costs Act of 2019

I write to ask for your support for the Restoring the Partnership for County Health Care Costs Act of 2019.  This bill requires that individuals who receive Medicare, Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and/or Supplementary Security
Income (SSI) benefits, and are subsequently incarcerated pending disposition of their charges, maintain those benefits until they are convicted of a crime. Furthermore, the bill eliminates the current mandatory 30 day delay in reinstating Medicaid mental health
care benefits for those released from custody. During this period of time, people in need of mental health assistance are without such care and run the risk of violating the law once again thereby contributing to our country’s significant problem of recidivism.

authorities with the resources they need to administer free and fair elections and to ensure that every vote is both counted and protected.

Co-sign Letter to AG Barr Ensuring that DOJ Supports Fair and Ethical Judicial Activities in Brazil

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) engages with judicial authorities around the world, providing critical support and information to foreign partners as they investigate and prosecute local and transnational criminal actors. While these international cooperation
efforts play an important role in advancing the rule of law in many countries, it remains crucial for Congress to exercise effective oversight over the DOJ’s activities abroad, particularly in locations where judicial authorities are believed to have acted
in an unethical or illegal manner.
