Cosponsor HR 725 to Allow Essential Federal Workers Still Working to Collect Unemployment Benefits

This prolonged government shutdown is having lasting ramifications on our federal workers, their families, and our communities.  While the ultimate solution to this problem is to come to the table and negotiate a solution, we owe it to those workers, families
and communities to lessen the impact this shutdown is having on them.  For many, even one missed paycheck can be financially catastrophic.  Food, gas, childcare, healthcare and mortgage payments don’t stop when the government is shut down and asking our federal

Cosponsor the Bipartisan Violence Against Women Health Act of 2018

Please join us in cosponsoring the bipartisan Violence Against Women Health Act. In 2005, Congress reauthorized the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) which included a new health title to develop a public health response to abuse by strengthening the health
care system’s identification, assessment and response of victims. To date, the VAWA Health program has trained more than 13,000 health care providers to assess for and respond to domestic and sexual violence in over 230 clinical settings serving more than
1.3 million patients. More patients are being screened, but more collaboration between health systems and advocates is needed to connect victims to services, help them escape the abuse, and improve their overall health and safety.
