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.

The measure would end school practices that single out students by disposing of their meal after it has been served, prohibiting them from participating in extracurricular activities, or forcing them to perform chores or other duties not generally required of students.
