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.

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.
