Deadline COB FRIDAY: Original Cosponsor Request: WATER ACT 2018

Our water infrastructure is in a state of emergency. People in Flint, Michigan, still do not have access to safe drinking water. They are not alone. Families in communities across the country, from Detroit to Philadelphia to San Diego, have lost running
water or access to safe drinking water in their homes because they can not afford the increasing costs of water rates. We need a major federal investment in our public water infrastructure to renovate our nation’s old and lead-ridden water pipes, stop sewage
overflows and stem our water affordability crisis.

Cosponsor H.R. 5468, the Permitting Litigation Efficiency Act and Streamline the Permitting Process

I invite you to become a cosponsor of H.R. 5468, the Permitting Litigation Efficiency Act. The federal permitting process has become an immense burden for both businesses and state and local governments.  Reforming this process will improve job creation
and help our nation reach its full economic potential.  The Hoover Dam was built in five years.  The Empire State Building took one year and 45 days.  Modern projects, however, are often bogged down in years or decades of bureaucratic red tape before they
even get off the ground.

JUSTICE FOR OUR VETERANS TODAY: Co-sponsor the bipartisan H.R. 3429, the Repatriate Our Patriots Act, and bring our unjustly deported veterans home

We are all forever indebted to the brave men and women who served in uniform. Yet when veterans who were legal permanent residents leave the service, after our military failed to properly process their citizenship applications, they are deported. Despite AMVETS,

little to nothing about. It is our responsibility to right this wrong.
