Modernize FDA Drug Development Regulations

Please join me in urging the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to modify its existing regulations and programs that guide pharmaceutical development to clearly allow for use of modern nonclinical testing approaches. Our lives depend on safe and effective
medicines. But, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), approximately 95% of new medicines fail in clinical trials because they are unsafe or do not work in humans, despite appearing safe and effective in nonclinical animal-based tests. This
must change.

Support American Workers: Cosponsor the Buy America 2.0 Act

As you know, we face an infrastructure crisis of historic proportions.  Although it’s reassuring to see bipartisan agreement about the need to address this pressing challenge, a truly American infrastructure proposal must also boost American workers.  Despite
all the talk, the President’s infrastructure proposal was silent on Buy America.  So, I introduced H.R. 2755, the Buy America 2.0 Act, to require that all federally-funded infrastructure projects use materials made here in America.  The legislation is supported
by the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers, Alliance for American Manufacturing, BlueGreen Alliance, AFL-CIO, and Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO.  I encourage you to sign on as a cosponsor.
