Congressional Report

Dear Friends,

Over the past week I finished up my legislative work in Washington before returning to the district for Congress' spring District Work Period.

Before I left Washington last Wednesday, I joined my colleagues in unanimously voting to condemn the horrible terrorist attacks that took place in Brussels recently. With Americans among those lost in the bloodshed, we must renew our resolve against the ISIS terrorists who have taken responsibility for these attacks and other similar attacks across Europe.

Since returning to the district, I have been meeting with constituents to hear how best I can serve them in Washington. As always, my district staff has been hard at work representing me at events across the district, including at a book donation and at a women's health clinic.

You can also read more below about my recent interactions with constituents in Washington and about one of my Washington, D.C., interns.
