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.

BECOME AN ORIGINAL CO-SPONSOR: Local Radio Freedom Act

We write today to urge you to join us in a bipartisan effort to support America’s local radio stations as we reintroduce the Local Radio Freedom Act (H.Con.Res. 13 in the 115th Congress). This resolution – which has gained majority bipartisan
support in the House in five prior Congresses – reaffirms Congress’s longstanding support for the local radio stations that serve each of our communities and expresses that Congress should not impose new performance fees or taxes on local radio stations. 
Any such tax or fee would significantly jeopardize the ability of the local radio stations to serve our communities and constituents, especially during times of local emergencies.
This resolution attained 228 cosponsors in the 115th Congress; we ask for your help achieving even greater support this Congress.

Join the House Tech Accountability Caucus

We invite you to join the House Tech Accountability Caucus, a group of legislators who seek to engage Congress, the technology sector, and the American people on the critical need to foster an innovative, inclusive, and accountable tech sector.
 
It is difficult to understate the outsized impact the technology sector has on our country. Not only does America’s digital economy support over 7 million jobs, it is reshaping the way we live and work. 
 
As companies continue to innovate, and the tech sector continues to grow, both industry and consumers are faced with new challenges with respect to data and consumer protection, workplace concerns, federal regulations, and the social impact of new technologies.
 
Through legislation, hearings, roundtable discussions, and briefings, the Caucus aims to work with industry in establishing accountability standards to ensure that American tech companies continue to thrive and innovate in an inclusive and accountable manner.
