Last week we officially rang in the 116th Congress and the new Democratic Majority in the House of Representatives. Being sworn-in as your Representative in the historic Capitol Building is a privilege I do not take for granted. I hope you enjoy some photos of the festivities below.

Video Statement: My Thoughts on Democrats' Priorities for the 116th Congress
On the Floor
As one of our first acts in control of the House, Democrats offered a pathway to end the Trump shutdown. The package would re-open government services, ensure workers get the paychecks they've earned, and restore certainty to the lives of the American people - and it was identical to a bill that the Senate already passed with Republican support. The President should do what is in the best interest of the American people and join us to re-open the government without funding for a border wall.
