I just voted to pass the #ForThePeople Act, our landmark voting rights and anti-corruption legislation which would:

🗳️ Expand automatic and same day voter registration
💰 Get dark money out of politics
🗺️ Help fix partisan gerrymandering
🔒 Secure our elections

In today's @AppropsDems Leg Branch hearing, we discussed funding for USCP in the wake of the 1/6 attack.

I asked about USCP's intel sharing and communications protocols to ensure that we are directing resources where they're needed to prevent another security failure like 1/6.

A new poll from Morning Consult shows that 77% of Americans support the American Rescue Plan — including 59% of Republican voters.

That’s unity.

With mass shootings jumping to a record high last year, we must take long overdue action to #EndGunViolence.

I'm proud to cosponsor #HR8 to implement universal background checks, which was just reintroduced in the House this week.

The COVID crisis has hit women especially hard, & I’m working to help those who have been hurt.

Our #AmericanRescuePlan includes funding to rescue the child care industry & expand the Child Tax Credit to ease the economic burdens facing families right now.

I had a great meeting with @vaspacegrant today to discuss the amazing opportunities they offer #VA10 young people to get engaged with STEM and aerospace opportunities.

I especially enjoyed the chance to hear directly from Sasha, a Virginia Space Grant program participant!

Three weeks ago, I announced we would have enough vaccine supply for all Americans by the end of July.

Now, with our efforts to ramp up production, we will have enough vaccines for every American by the end of May.

Happy #ReadAcrossAmericaDay 📚

One of my favorite things to do is stop by #VA10 classrooms to read stories—like "Grace for President," one of my favorites!

Hope you're enjoying a good book today. 📕

I’m excited to be appointed to @CECCgov.

Confronting human rights abuses in China is a top priority. I’m looking forward to working w/the Biden admin & Senate colleagues on a bipartisan strategy that puts human rights at the forefront of US-China policy.

Good news on vaccines!

After the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was approved, Merck is now partnering with J&J to ramp up production. This means we will be able to get more shots into the arms of Americans ASAP.

I met with @MPSSociety today to talk about working to secure funding for MPS research.

We also discussed extending telehealth policies post-COVID which have been helpful and convenient for families who often travel far for appointments.

My heart breaks for Adam's family, friends, and loved ones.

Those who knew him say Adam was a kind and loving young man who was a friend to all. This is a tragic loss for the Potomac Falls community.

This #WomensHistoryMonth, we celebrate the progress that women in America and around the world have made towards achieving equality.

We still have a long way to go.

That's why I'm working in Congress to guarantee equal pay, protect reproductive freedom, ratify the ERA, & more.

No matter where her fame took her, Patsy Cline always called Winchester home.

My new legislation would rename the post office downtown in her honor so her historic and inspiring life will always be remembered here in #VA10.

These attacks against Asian Americans are despicable.

There's no place for this hate & racism, which is fueled by misinformation about COVID.

I stand with our #VA10 Asian American community and will do all I can in Congress do combat these hate crimes.

Thank you to our panelists, Mike, Dr. Haneef, & Thomas, and all of the #VA10 students who joined our STEM Workshop this morning!

Our students got to hear directly from local experts & learn more about the ways that STEM skills are essential to health care, medicine, & research.

Quoted @elwasson

HOUSE passes stimulus bill 219 to 212. No GOP yes votes

I just voted to pass the #AmericanRescuePlan.

This bill will allow us to get shots into the arms of every American, put money directly into the pockets of those hurting, ensure our kids can safely learn in their classrooms, & protect and restore jobs here in #VA10.

There are a lot of Republicans grandstanding on the floor tonight but when has the US Chamber, Bernie Sanders, a Trump economic advisor, the Governor of West Virginia, & 70% of the country ever agreed on anything?

The @HouseGOP is radically out of touch with the American people.
