programs. As co-chairs of the Addiction, Treatment, and Recovery Caucus, it is our goal to build on this momentum in the 116th Congress.

Seeking Original Cosponsors: WORKER Act

For being the wealthiest nation on earth, far too many Americans are struggling with the realities of everyday life—paying the bills, caring for a family, putting food on the table, and keeping a roof over their head.
The future of our economy rests in our ability to alleviate this struggle by innovating and creating new, livable-wage jobs where they are needed most. We need to encourage and expand STEM education and create a pipeline into
the workforce through apprenticeships. We need to make it easier for Americans to get the skills necessary to compete in our shifting economy and to provide the income support services necessary to succeed.

Cosponsor: Fair Trade with China Enforcement Act

We have seen the headlines — China is spending nearly three times what America spends on infrastructure, and if China’s GDP continues to grow at the projected levels, it is estimated they will overtake the U.S. in the next decade. China controlled 4% of
the global economy in 2000, and the U.S. controlled 31%, and today, China has 15% and we have 24%. These numbers are staggering.

Join the Bipartisan Effort to Honor American Patriots of WWII with a “Congressional Gold Medal”

Courageous citizens from across the country saw the dangers represented by Nazi and Fascist aggression and voluntarily fought to prevent the associated detrimental impacts on the American way of life.  Prior to the United States’ declared entry into the
conflict, these patriots served through the Canadian and British Armed Forces, often suffering tremendous casualties.  Wartime media accounts detail the intrepid volunteers, and organizations within several states have recognized them with memorials and websites.
Yet the foresight, courage and sacrifices of these patriots have remained for the most part an untold story which has not received formal, collective recognition. Their positive contributions were legion and the knowledge and experience they obtained under
Canadian and British tutelage provided invaluable leadership later when many transferred into branches of the U.S. Military. These patriots who served in the Canadian and British armed forces before transferring to lead the United States in the wartime effort
include LTC John C. Morgan, the only person to become a Prisoner of War after being awarded the Medal of Honor.  Other distinguished patriots include:
Donald Blakeslee,
William R. Dunn,
Dominic Salvatore Gentile,
John Gillespie Magee, Jr., and Edward J. Tracey.
