During debate on the House floor of the INVEST In America Act, I discussed the auto safety provisions in the bill, which I ushered through my subcommittee. The bill also includes funding to help remove dangerous lead service lines in our water system. Illinois has nearly 680,000 lead service lines.
Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, a Senior Chief Deputy Whip and Chair of the Consumer Protection and Commerce Subcommittee of the Energy and Commerce Committee, hosted a press conference to highlight the auto safety provisions included in the INVEST In America Act, the infrastructure package the U.S. House will vote on this week.
I joined advocates from Illinois to talk about the Green New Deal and steps we are taking to act on climate change. While the climate corps piece was not included in the bipartisan infrastructure deal President Biden and a group of Senators came up with, House Democrats will include it in our reconciliation package.

Before the Supreme Court’s ruling in Gross v. FBL Financial Services Inc., older workers alleging age discrimination in the workplace had to prove that age was simply one of the motivating factors behind the discrimination.

The Access to Counsel Act of 2021 would ensure that U.S. citizens, green card holders, and others coming to the United States with valid travel documents may contact a lawyer or a family member if held by CBP for more than an hour.
I spoke on the House floor today during the debate on H.R. 1333, the NO BAN Act. It prohibits discrimination in immigration matters on the basis of religion and limits the authority of the Executive Branch to issue overly broad travel bans in the future.
