We have an affordable housing crisis and the COVID pandemic has only made this worse.  That’s why I’m fighting to increase the Affordable Housing Tax Credit in the Build Back Better package, which would provide more than 27,000 units of affordable housing in Washington state.
Washington officials are eyeing fresh steps and approaches to reduce poverty, including finding new ways to measure the economic recovery and disparities, and to boost the voice of communities often excluded from such policymaking. @OlympiaJoe: st.news/3EimCUx

For 50 years, Americans have relied on the constitutional protections established by Roe v. Wade to make decisions for themselves about their reproduction, their families, & their bodies. I’ll continue to fight to protect the right to reproductive health care for all Americans.

I was saddened to hear of Congresswoman Jolene Unsoeld’s passing earlier this week. She was a strong advocate for government transparency and environmental protection. Her legislative work bolstered Washington state’s maritime economy, from fishing vessels to the cruise industry.

Today, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case that could determine the future of abortion rights. @SenCortezMasto, @SenatorCantwell, and Sen. @PattyMurray are standing up for women’s health and fighting to stop Republican efforts to undermine Roe v. Wade.

The infrastructure bill makes serious investments in some of our salmon recovery challenges. For the first time, the bill creates a new culvert removal and habitat restoration grant program that prioritizes salmon and will open up spawning habitat. pewtrusts.org/en/research-an…

Freight can’t wait, that’s why I secured critical investments for port infrastructure in the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act to help increase port capacity around the United States and help ease supply chain bottlenecks.

The Mountain Loop Highway is a critical alternative route to Darrington and other communities in the North Stillaguamish Valley for both residents and freight. Tragedies like the Oso mudslide have shown the importance of improving these routes. (2/2)

With each train blocking access to Olympic Gateway Plaza for up to half an hour, this project is sorely needed to reduce delays and ensure emergency vehicles can access the area. (2/2)
