Government Reform

As a member of the bipartisan Congressional Problem Solvers’ Caucus, I have made it a major mission to work across party lines during my time in Congress. The toxic influence of money in our political system has made Members of Congress far too focused on fundraising and gaining attention for extreme positions, rather than rolling up our sleeves and getting to work solving the problems of the day. That is why I have introduced my Restore Democracy legislation, a seven-point blueprint to reforming the campaign finance system, election laws, and the rules that govern House procedure.

As a member of the House Task Force on Election Reform, I have also championed legislation related to voting rights, election reform, and Super PACs, including a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution clarifying that corporations are not people.

Welcoming Newly-Elected Members of Congress to Washington    

It was great seeing all the new faces in Washington last week. Here I am with (left to right) Congresswoman-elect Ilhan Omar, Congressman-elect Dean Phillips, and Congresswoman-elect Angie Craig. With leadership like this, I am confident that Minnesota's best days are ahead.
