Cosponsor the Low-Wage Federal Contractor Employee Back Pay Act of 2019

Please cosponsor the Low-Wage Federal Contractor Employee Back Pay Act (H.R. 339) to grant back pay to low-wage federally contracted retail, food, custodial and security service workers who are furloughed during the current and any other federal government
shutdown this fiscal year (fiscal year 2019).  After previous government shutdowns, federal workers have received back pay, but not federal contract workers, who often perform the same jobs as civil servants.  While I believe that all federal employees and
federal contract workers should receive back pay after a shutdown, we know that we cannot get Congress to make whole all who are hurt by a shutdown.  Therefore, our bill focuses specifically on low-wage federal contract workers, because these are the workers
most likely to be irretrievably hurt by lost wages during a shutdown.

COSPONSOR H.R. 510, the Building Rail Access for Customers and the Economy Act (‘BRACE Act’)

As the freight rail industry has evolved, many short line railroads and smaller communities have been abandoned, removing critical first- and last-mile links between producers, consumers, and export opportunities in large and small communities across America.
Since it was first enacted in 2005, the Short Line Railroad Maintenance Credit has been extended for one- or two-year increments, providing limited certainty for short line railroads to make investments in their infrastructure. Our legislation provides
certainty by making the Short Line Railroad Maintenance Credit permanent while also applying it retroactively to tax year 2018.
