Cosponsor H.R. 92, the Vote by Mail Act to Expand Mail-In Voting, Automatic Registration

The individual right to vote, the cornerstone of our democracy, is under threat in communities across America. According to the Brennan Center for Justice, by November 8, 2016, 14
states had new restrictions on voting in place for the first time in a presidential election. Voting restrictions like these have historically targeted minority and low-income voters. This disturbing trend in state action has mirrored the weakening of
campaign finance restrictions and voting rights laws by the U.S. Supreme Court in recent years. Even as we witness a growing civic engagement, legal and political barriers rise to unjustly diminish individual voices.

Investigate harmful Trump trade tariffs on 5G small cell infrastructure

Please join me in sending a letter to Comptroller General of the United States, Gene Dodaro, requesting that the Government Accountability Office conduct a review of all Trump trade policies including, but not limited to, tariffs that effect the trade in
foundational telecommunications equipment.  At a critical time in the rollout of 5G infrastructure that will enable and empower the next generation of mobile innovation, US smart cities, autonomous vehicles, and a smart power grid, President Trump’s trade
policies with China threaten to eliminate whatever advantage we have in the race to deploy 5G technology nationwide.  His tariffs are raising the cost of the microelectronics that are crucial in the fabrication of 5G infrastructure, raising the costs to consumers
as carriers begin to roll out this technology.

economy demands access to reliable broadband services, a need that Congress has answered in part with federal funding to build up and expand rural broadband infrastructure.

High-speed internet access has become a pillar of our 21st Century economy and a prerequisite to economic growth in America. Broadband access has revolutionized virtually every dimension of our lives—from education to telemedicine, and entrepreneurship.

Co-Sponsor the 21st Century Investment Act

A robust research and development (R&D) tax credit boosts economic growth, creates jobs, and encourages local investment. Congress made the R&D tax credit permanent and expanded it to benefit start-ups and small businesses in 2015, but we should pursue new
ways to leverage the program to spur innovation, increase productivity, and create good-paying American jobs. To this goal, I am asking for your support for the
21st Century Investment Act.
