Cosponsor the FASTER Act NOW to Stop Congress from Raiding Aviation Security Funding

Our aviation security system desperately needs additional resources to address today’s threat environment. That’s why Congress established an airline passenger fee, the September 11 Security Fee, in order to help finance the cost of securing the nation’s
aviation transportation system. The passenger fee is currently $5.60 per one-way trip and may not exceed $11.20 round trip.

Cosponsor the BUILD Resilience Act

In recent years we have seen communities battered by extreme weather, including storm surge, heavy downpours, and tropical storms. In 2016, the President issued 46 major disaster declarations in 27 States for events ranging from the effects of Hurricane
Matthew on the East Coast, to severe flooding in Kentucky and Louisiana, to wildfires in Tennessee. These catastrophes strain the ability of local authorities to effectively respond and despite advances in disaster preparedness, many communities remain vulnerable
to catastrophic events.

A Vision for the Future on Infrastructure

The United States has the opportunity to improve the lives of its citizens and create millions of jobs by making the robust, public investments in our infrastructure. There are examples all around the country of infrastructure that is crumbling and needs
to be rebuilt, whether it is our highways, bridges, transit, airports, high-speed rail, waterways, ports, public schools or harbors. We also need serious investment in drinking water and wastewater systems, as well as energy and telecommunication projects.
By broadening the scope of investments, we can address every facet of Americans’ lives.

Cosponsor H.R. 2112: the Federal Government Decentralization Commission Act

A common thread that unites all of us in Congress is the desire to bring job growth and development to our districts. In the fight to uplift our communities, I believe we should be exploring all avenues of potential growth. Our country should be proud of
our capital city, and the role it plays in running the federal government. However, the Founding Fathers could not have envisioned the size of our current federal government system, where more than 300,000 federal employees work in the Washington DC metropolitan
area in 190 federally-owned buildings and 500 leased buildings. The days in which federal agencies needed to be centrally located are long gone. Modern technology allows agencies to carry out their missions remotely just as effectively as they do from Washington,
D.C.
