LEGISLATIVE ACTIONS

Mark Voted In Favor of the Federal Civilian Workforce Pay Raise Fairness Act (H.R. 790)

President Trump has spent his whole presidency unfairly punishing federal workers who dedicate their lives to serving our nation. Most recently, he shut down the government and canceled scheduled pay raises. I supported the Federal Civilian Workforce Pay Raise Fairness Act this week, which gives long overdue pay raises to federal civilian workers. This bill passed by a vote of 259-to-161.

Mark highlights the need to drive down the cost of prescription drugs at Oversight Hearing

During the first Oversight Committee hearing of 2019, Mark shared his personal story with cancer and the need for public and private investment to work together to help save lives and drive down the cost of lifesaving medications. Click the image below to watch.
