In March, we celebrate Women’s History Month and remember the women who came before us who organized and advanced the pursuit of equality. As Rochesterians, we honor this history in a special way given the unique role Western New York has played in shaping the women’s suffrage movement.
Tonight, President Trump will speak before a joint session of Congress regarding his agenda for the country. While I was pleased that the president withdrew from the 12-country trade deal known as the Trans Pacific Partnership, I believe that the start of this administration has been a troubling one.
Have you ever wondered why we vote on Tuesdays?
The past several weeks, Republicans in Washington have worked behind closed doors using a seldom-used law called the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to gut important protections that impact you and your family.
Thank you to those who recently joined me in Rochester at my Roe v. Wade event and my ACA press conference or in Washington, D.C. during the Women’s March and the inauguration. It was wonderful speaking with so many of you, and I'm pleased that hundreds of you took the time to stop by!
Like so many of you, I am deeply concerned by the Republican Congress and president’s unending assault on the Affordable Care Act. If that wasn’t bad enough, the Trump administration has now taken the extraordinary step of sabotaging this law while it is still in place.
I’ve always believed that public servants should put the interests of the country ahead of their own. That’s why I authored the STOCK Act and led the six-year fight to get it signed into law to help ensure that all federal officials uphold the public trust. This law bans insider trading and promotes transparency for elected officials and their staff.
As the 115th Congress kicks off this week, I want to take a moment and let you know how grateful I am for the privilege of serving as your representative in Congress. I am forever grateful to all of my constituents for their continued trust and support. I’m ready to work harder than ever on your behalf!
