SIGN-ON: Emergency Aid for Public Education in Puerto Rico/US Virgin Islands

Congressman Robert C. “Bobby” Scott, Ranking Member of the Education and Workforce Committee, is leading a letter (text pasted below) to the Administration concerning supplemental appropriations to restart public schools in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin

Be an original cosponsor of H.Res. on Commemorating International Day of Rural Women on October 15, 2017

Please join me in co-sponsoring legislation to commemorate International Day of Rural Women, in recognition of women farmers around the world. According to the U.N., rural women make up over one quarter of the total world population and represent approximately
43 percent of the agricultural labor force. They play a critical role in agricultural productivity, in terms of food security and economic stability. Women serve as the bedrock of society, feed their families, neighbors, and countrymen, and are important role
