Dear Friend,

 

This week in Washington, DC, the House approved a resolution outlining the rules for the next stages of the impeachment inquiry. We also passed a bill to impose sanctions on Turkey for its invasion of northern Syria, a resolution to affirm our country’s recognition of the Armenian Genocide, and bills to protect our public lands.

Dear Friend, This morning, we said our final goodbyes to the late, great Elijah Cummings. He is the first African American lawmaker to lie in state in the U.S. Capitol – a fitting honor for one of the most honorable men I have ever known. I am proud to have known him, to have worked with him, and to have learned from him. We will carry on his legacy of fighting for justice, equality, and our democracy. Earlier this week, the work of Congress continued. On Monday, I unveiled a new report on the links between gun ownership and suicide and on Tuesday and Wednesday the House voted to pass two of my bills – the first on ending anonymous shell companies and the second to reauthorize the Debbie Smith DNA Backlog Grant program. More on all this below.

Dear Friend,

As you know, we lost a giant of the US Congress yesterday – Chairman Elijah E. Cummings. Our nation has lost a true leader and pioneer, and I have lost a dear friend and mentor.

Dear Friend,

I love being home here in NYC during District Work Periods because I get to spend time hearing directly from you about the issues you care about and what you want to see me working on when I return to Washington, DC.

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.
