March 21, 2017 E-newsletters

Dear Friends, The month of March was busy to say the least. We accomplished great work both in D.C. and through a series of events at home in the district. In D.C., among introducing bills and speaking out against “TrumpCare,” I served as a ranking member in my first T&I subcommittee hearing on the issue of the country’s national preparedness system.

Although I have hosted five town halls to date, more work is necessary to ensure that the benefits and accomplishments of the past eight years for all Americans aren’t abolished with a stroke of the pen.
