Legislation

Before a piece of legislation can be considered by the House of Representatives, it must first be sponsored by a Member of the House. Members of Congress who are not the primary sponsor of a bill may also express their strong support for the legislation by becoming a cosponsor.

Below you will find a list of the the bills I have introduced during the 114th Congress. More information about each of them can be found by clicking on the bill name. If you would like to view a complete list of bills I have cosponsored during the 114th Congress, please click here.
