CLOSING SOON: Prevent F-35 Sales to Turkey

June 11, 2018

Last year, when Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s security forces assaulted peaceful protestors here in Washington, the House of Representatives formally condemned the attack and prevented the sale of handguns to Erdogan’s bodyguards. This year, Turkey

Join the House Tech Accountability Caucus

June 7, 2018

We invite you to join the House Tech Accountability Caucus, a group of legislators who seek to engage Congress, the technology sector, and the American people on the critical need to foster an innovative, inclusive, and accountable tech sector.
 
It is difficult to understate the outsized impact the technology sector has on our country. Not only does America’s digital economy support over 7 million jobs, it is reshaping the way we live and work. 
 
As companies continue to innovate, and the tech sector continues to grow, both industry and consumers are faced with new challenges with respect to data and consumer protection, workplace concerns, federal regulations, and the social impact of new technologies.
 
Through legislation, hearings, roundtable discussions, and briefings, the Caucus aims to work with industry in establishing accountability standards to ensure that American tech companies continue to thrive and innovate in an inclusive and accountable manner.

Become a Co-Sponsor Closing the Gun Show Loophole

June 7, 2018

I invite you to become a co-sponsor of a bill that closes the gun show loophole. The United States experiences epidemic levels of gun violence, claiming over 30,000 lives annually, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition
to those who are killed or injured, there are countless others whose lives are forever changed by the deaths of and injuries to their loved ones. Gun violence touches every segment of our society. It increases the probability of deaths in incidents of domestic
violence, raises the likelihood of fatalities by those who intend to injure others and among those who attempt suicide, and places innocent children and young people at risk.
