Proud to be an original co-sponsor of the LGBT Data Inclusion Act, which will require federal surveys to include data collection on sexual orientation and gender identity. #LGBTdata will help our government to make policies that meet the needs of all Americans!

Joined House Democrats and U.S. Senate Democrats this morning to urge congressional Republicans to cancel recess and #DoYourJob. Congress has urgent business to do, yet the majority continues to block efforts to create good-paying #jobs, fund robust action against the #Zika virus, confront the #opioid epidemic, address the #Flint water crisis, and hold a hearing and vote on #PresidentObama's nominee to the #SupremeCourt. Democrats are ready to lead the way on these important matters, and Republicans should join us in that work.

I voted against the Energy and Water Appropriations Bill today because it guts #CleanEnergy programs, weakens the #CleanWater Act and the #EndangeredSpecies Act, delays the federal government’s ability to respond to California’s continuing #drought, and provides no additional water to the communities hit hardest by this drought. In short, the bill hampers our ability to tackle the environmental challenges of the 21st century. Members of the majority party also voted to defeat the bill, but not because of its terrible environmental policies. Shamefully, they voted down the bill because it included the Maloney Amendment, which prohibited anti-LGBT discrimination in federal contracts. It wasn’t enough for them that the bill also included divisive and ideological anti-LGBT riders, which have no place in appropriations bills or elsewhere. Apparently, any effort to promote equality for our #LGBT brothers and sisters is unacceptable to many of our Republican colleagues. #Shame

May is #OlderAmericansMonth! As a member of The Congressional Task Force on Seniors, I'm proud to fight to ensure that America’s seniors enjoy a secure retirement. Every senior must have financial security, access to affordable health care, and a high quality of life. That is why we must protect and expand Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. It is also why I was glad to support this year's reauthorization of the Older Americans Act, which funds senior services ranging from Meals on Wheels to family caregiver support to transportation services. I will keep standing up for legislation that will help Americans retire with dignity and independence!
