I'm also proud of the work we accomplished in Washington this year. House Democrats delivered on our promises to the American people by passing landmark legislation:
Making Prescription Drugs Less Expensive
- H.R. 3, the Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act, would lower the cost of prescription drugs by ensuring that drug companies don't charge more in America than they do in other countries for the exact same drugs. Click here
to see why I was proud to cosponsor and vote yes on this important bill.
Acting On Climate Change
- I was also proud to cosponsor and vote yes on H.R. 9, the Climate Action Now Act, to combat the climate crisis and block President Trump from pulling the United States out of the Paris Agreement.
Giving America A Pay Raise
- H.R. 582, the Raise The Wage Act, would raise the minimum wage to $15 by 2025, giving up to 33 million Americans a raise, and lifting at least 1.3 million Americans out of poverty. I was proud to cosponsor and vote yes on this vital bill.
