As Southwest Washington's representative in Congress, I want to keep you up-to-date on my work to improve life in our region. If you have any questions or ideas to share with me, I welcome you to send me a direct message here.
Protecting our wild native fish runs on the Columbia River
Our Northwest fish numbers have been decimated by a growing population of sea lions moving into our region's rivers to gorge on salmon, steelhead, and sturgeon.
Successfully withholding taxpayer dollars from Wuhan Lab, investigating deleted COVID data
We owe it to the U.S. communities decimated by COVID to investigate and hold China accountable for its role in the catastrophic spread of the virus.
We're a step closer to such accountability; last week I successfully secured amendments into a committee-approved spending plan that will keep U.S. taxpayer dollars from going to the Wuhan lab and investigate why – at the direction of a Chinese researcher – critical COVID gene sequences were deleted from the National Institutes of Health.
Our goal with these measures is to ensure the Chinese Communist Party isn’t allowed to repeat the missteps and potential cover-ups that contributed to this global pandemic.
