Recent Activity

January 11, 2019 Press Release
The Trump Shutdown has suspended cleanups of hazardous materials and delayed lifesaving rulemaking to keep toxic chemicals like methylene chloride out of Americans’ homes. The Trump Shutdown threatens the enduring natural beauty and conservation efforts of our National Parks as trash piles up, and the safety of visitors is in question. Public health and safety should not be political bargaining chips.
January 11, 2019 Press Release
Today is the twenty-first day of the Trump Shutdown and the damage it inflicts on families and communities across this country continues to grow. More than 800,000 federal workers are without pay, and today will be the first missed paycheck for those families. Many of our civil servants are working without pay. Telling them they may have to file for unemployment is outrageous and just wrong.

January 3, 2019 Press Release
"Our new Democratic Majority was elected to end the chaos and govern responsibly. This legislative package to end the Trump Shutdown and fully reopen government consists of two parts, separating the disagreement between President Trump and Congress over border security from funding for the rest of the federal government."
