    “Despite many preconceived notions, human trafficking is not a problem that is isolated to foreign soil. It is a crisis at our doorstep.

There is still a lot of work to be done, but the passage of these bills represents an important step in the right direction and I was proud to support them.” Read more

For this reason, I voted for the Verify First Act, to ensure that those receiving valuable premium support or health care tax cred... Read more
