Dear Friend, 
It’s the August district work period and I’m currently meeting with community leaders, local groups, and constituents about their priorities and how we can help. I’m also sharing the important work I’m doing in Washington – we had a tremendous first 200-plus days. Here are some highlights for the week of August 12: 

Fighting to keep Americans safe


Days drag on and Senate Majority Leader McConnell still has not acted to pass meaningful gun safety legislation. Last week, I joined more than 200 of my colleagues on the House Gun Task Force in sending a letter to the Senate Majority Leader requesting that he immediately call back the Senate to vote on two gun bills we passed in the House back in February; H.R. 8, The Bipartisan Background Checks Act and H.R. 1112, The Enhanced Background Checks Act. Yesterday, House Gun Task Force Leadership reached out to McConnell to request a meeting on consideration of this important legislation. Last night, in Philadelphia, 6 police officers were shot in the line of duty. We cannot let this go on any longer. Enough is enough.
