Become A Cosponsor of the Jubilee Day Resolution

I wanted to give you some history on the proposed Pebble mine in Alaska that is the subject of my amendment (Huffman #90) to the Energy and Water Appropriations
Bill. Located in Southwest Alaska, Bristol Bay and its surrounding watersheds are one of the last, great intact salmon systems in the world. Around the mouth and along the rivers of Bristol Bay, 25 federally recognized tribes depend on the salmon for food
and their local economy and on the watershed for clean water. In total, the Bristol Bay supports 14,000 jobs and provides $1.5 billion in economic stimulus for the Pacific Northwest region. Recreational fishing also represents a major source of economic revenue,
with over 13,000 anglers traveling each year to the area.

Across the United States, home studies are mandated for every family who is adopting a child domestically from a private agency or public child welfare agency. Home studies are important because they provide child welfare agencies and the courts with the

Cosponsor the Huffman Federal Leadership in Energy Efficient Transportation (FLEET) Act of 2019

It is time to transform the worst federal fleet into a national leader in fuel efficiency and technological innovation. The United States Postal Service (USPS) owns and operates the world’s largest civilian vehicle fleet comprised of more than 232,000 mail
delivery vehicles. Over 141,000 of these vehicles are aging Grumman LLVs, which average only 10 miles per gallon. This vehicle first entered service in 1987, and the majority have reached the end of their 24-year operational lifespan. Fueling these vehicles
comes at a high cost: in FY 2016, the USPS purchased 251 million gallons of diesel at a cost of more than $570 million. This makes the USPS one of the largest consumers of diesel fuel in the United States.
