Become an Original Cosponsor of the WATER Act of 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 the Local Task Forces on 21st Century Policing Act

I invite you to cosponsor the Local Task Forces on 21st Century Policing Act, which would assist localities in carrying out some of the recommendations of the federal Task Force on 21st Century Policing and the Department of Justice’s
Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, both of which detail the need to strengthen the relationship between local communities and local law enforcement.  The bill would provide grants to local governments to create local task forces on 21st
century policing to bring police, representatives of the community and public officials together to identify best policing practices for local police and other ways to strengthen relationships between the community and police departments.  No new funds are
needed.  Existing funds from the Department of Justice would support local governments establishing the task forces by listing these task forces as an acceptable use of Byrne Justice Assistance Grants.  Given the continuing controversy surrounding police shootings
of unarmed African American men, with no solutions in sight, this bill is more timely every day.
