June 20, 2018 Press Release
“The Trump-GOP rescissions bill was a disastrous attempt to play election year politics by eliminating funding for children’s health insurance and slashing investments that create jobs and strengthen communities. The Senate was right to reject this attack on American children and families."

The Fiscal Year 2019 Financial Services bill is inadequate at best and negligent at worst.
