Dear Friend,

I always look forward to District Work Periods because they give me time to spend more than just a weekend back here in NY, which means I have more time to connect with each of you, the constituents of NY-12.

Dear Friend,

It was another busy week in Washington, DC and I wanted to share some highlights with you.

This week, as Vice Chair of the Joint Economic Committee, I released a report detailing the economic costs of gun violence and held a hearing with expert witnesses who spoke on what we need to do to end this epidemic.

Dear Friend, Congress is back in session! This week, I returned to Washington, DC for votes and Congressional hearings. To kick off the week, on Monday, I introduced my bill to stop banks from charging outrageous overdraft fees and taking advantage of their customers who can least afford it. Later in the week, I proudly voted with House Democrats to ban harmful offshore drillingand protect our environment. And, before returning to DC, I gathered with community and nonprofit leaders to call on Congress to pass my bill to support the creation of new community gardens and parks.

Dear Friend, This was a busy week for NY! Whether it was Governor Cuomo signing the Child Victim Act into law or New York City Council Members protesting the Public Charge rule, I’m glad representatives from our City always defend justice and fight back against the discriminatory policies proposed by the Trump Administration. At a time when hate is festering throughout our nation, it is crucial that we continue to defend the American values of freedom and acceptance. I’m proud to represent NY and to keep fighting for the constituents of NY-12.
