I had a great time celebrating @hawkeye360’s new satellite construction and assembly facility in Fairfax today! It’s wonderful to see critical tech businesses like this one thriving here in our region—and creating new good-paying jobs, too!
Women’s reproductive health care is under attack, which is why today I took action and voted to protect the freedom to access contraception. We can’t sit back as extremist Republicans seek to roll back the clock on reproductive rights. nbcnews.com/politics/congr…
Wishing @POTUS good health and a speedy recovery! twitter.com/AP/status/1550…
This funding bill invests in the well-being of all #VA10 kids and families. I'm proud it includes priorities I fought for such as looking into ways to improve child care services for federal workers and exploring the benefits of returnship programs to bolster our fed workforce. twitter.com/AppropsDems/st…
In the wake of Roe being overturned, I’m fighting hard to defend basic rights that may now be under threat. That’s why I’m proud to vote to enshrine marriage equality into federal law, protecting against attacks on same-sex and interracial marriages. nbcnews.com/politics/congr…
Yesterday I kicked off this year’s #VA10 High School Leadership Program, welcoming our students to a week of hands on engagement with what public service means here in our community. Can’t wait to hear about all you’re learning!
Today we broke ground on the GW Memorial Parkway rehabilitation project—made possible by our Great American Outdoors Act! Thousands of #VA10 constituents rely on this road to go to work & get around our region each day. I’m proud we’re delivering much-needed repairs & upgrades.

Two congresswomen @RepWexton and @RepYoungKim made a bipartisan call for US companies to comply with the Uyghur Forced Labour Prevention Act. “It’s time for them to do it. We need to just make sure that we hold them accountable.” wsj.com/articles/compa…

Thank you @RepWexton for raising awareness about my family’s plight and the plight of all #Uyghurs suffering genocide under the #Chinese government. #FreeNursFamily

I am seeking answers from the UAE government to what appears to be a politically motivated arrest of my constituent, Asim Ghafoor. Upholding fundamental rights, including due process protections, is critical to the U.S.-UAE relationship. reuters.com/world/rights-g…

I had the chance to meet with an impressive young Virginian today—Lauren, of Chantilly, who’s participating in the Washington Journalism & Media Conference at @GeorgeMasonU! It was great to hear about the cool experiences she's having as a National Youth Correspondent this week.

We can never fully repay our veterans for their service, but we have a responsibility to provide for them when they return home. I'm proud we'll be taking up the bipartisan Honoring Our #PACTAct to deliver care and benefits to veterans dealing with the effects of toxic exposure.
After a short district work period—including a trip with bipartisan congressional colleagues to South Korea—I’m back in Washington ready for a busy few weeks. We’ll be taking up the annual defense authorization bill as well as legislation to protect women seeking an abortion.
Wow! 🌌 This first image from the historic@NASAWebbb Telescope is remarkable—and a testament to the hard work of the many scientists, engineers, and technicians who have been a part of this project.twitter.com/nasawebb/statu…9
This bipartisan bill is the most consequential action taken to stop gun violence in decades. I’m proud of our work to save lives and make our communities safer, and will continue fighting for common sense gun violence prevention policies. twitter.com/potus/status/1…
I'm saddened and shocked by the killing of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. He was a strong and constant partner to the U.S. and a devoted leader, diplomat, and public servant. My thoughts are with his family and all of the people of Japan during this difficult time.
I visited the Korean DMZ to see the border and be briefed by the officers stationed there. This trip has been a great opportunity to engage more deeply with the security challenges on the Korean peninsula and dialogue firsthand with South Korean leaders.
NEW: Our once-in-a-generation Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is delivering $49.6 million for @Dulles_Airport to help construct an all-new regional & commuter terminal! This is a top priority for the airport to upgrade passenger experience & improve transit.wexton.house.gov/news/documents…
ICYMI: COVID vaccines are now authorized for children 6 months through 5 years old. You can find local health care providers and pharmacies offering vaccines for kids at vaccines.gov.
I spent the #FourthofJuly on a trip to South Korea with bipartisan Congressional colleagues, meeting with officials to discuss our commitment to this key global partnership. It was an honor to meet with and thank a group of Americans in uniform serving in the country. 🇺�CN
I'm proud to have secured a provision in the FY23 @AppropsDems bill to assess bringing returnships to the federal government to strengthen the workforce and support families.   I'm hopeful returnships will be a crucial way to attract the best and brightest to public service.
Returnships benefit employers, workers, and families—and are used in private industry and the state level.   For the millions of women who have left the workforce during COVID, these programs are more important than ever to help those who choose to get back into their careers.
You've heard of internships, but what about a "returnship"? Returnship programs help mid-career professionals who have left the workforce—to care for a child, sick relative, or stay home with kids during COVID—come back and find a job that matches their experience and skillset.
I’m horrified at this senseless attack on families celebrating today’s holiday. My heart is with the loved ones of those killed and all those in the Highland Park community shaken by this tragedy. twitter.com/washingtonpost…
Happy #FourthofJuly, #VA10! 🇺🇸🎆 Today we celebrate the values that America was founded on—liberty, justice, and equality—and continue to strive towards building a more perfect union.
On this final day of #Pride, my message to LGBTQ+ youth is that you are seen, you belong, and you are loved for who you are. And you will always have champions in Congress who will fight with all our power against bigoted efforts to bully and discriminate against you. twitter.com/LGBTEqCaucus/s…
This will have devastating consequences for the federal government's ability to keep people safe from polluted air & water and protect future generations from climate change. The extreme conservative majority on this Court sided with the fossil fuel industry over public health. twitter.com/AP/status/1542…
I enjoyed meeting the students of the RoboLoCo team from Academies of Loudoun to hear about their recent @FIRSTweets competitions. I'm a proud supporter of strong STEM education in our schools to help more young people discover their love for the world of science.
In the wake of last week's disastrous Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, it's important to know your rights and how you can continue to access the care you need. This resource guide below is a helpful place to have your questions answered ⬇️ reproductiverights.gov
As I followed today's stunning testimony from the January 6th Committee hearing, I couldn't stop thinking about the heroic men and women of the USCP and MPD who defended our Capitol that day. The former president knowingly put them directly in the crosshairs. twitter.com/yamiche/status…
President Trump knew these insurrectionists were armed. He sicced them on us in the Capitol anyway.
🚨 Exciting news! My bill renaming the Winchester walking mall post office in honor of country music legend Patsy Cline has been signed into law! I’m proud to have carried the legislation which will forever commemorate her legacy in her hometown.wexton.house.gov/news/documents…5
Happy 50th anniversary, @narfehq Dulles Chapter! I enjoyed celebrating this milestone with members today and thanking the NARFE team for all they do on behalf of Virginia’s federal workers and retirees.
There’s a group of House Dems walking to the Supreme Court chanting: “we trust women. We won’t go back”

The Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is an all-out assault on women’s right to an abortion—our worst fears, realized—handed down by an extreme and partisan Court that is violating decades of precedent. My full statement ⬇️
Transgender students deserve to go to school free from discrimination. At a time when trans rights are under attack across the country, this is an important & necessary step to protect young trans Americans from being marginalized in their own classroom. washingtonpost.com/education/2022…
Allowing the school meal enhancements we enacted during COVID to expire right now would be disastrous for our kids. I'm proud we're taking bipartisan action today to deliver the nutritional assistance kids need to thrive and help schools meet ongoing shortages & cost barriers.
I'm encouraged by this major step forward in delivering safe, reliable, and lasting Metro service to more Northern Virginians. I'll continue working closely with Metro leaders to ensure this final state is completed in a timely fashion and up to standard. washingtonpost.com/transportation…
This is a shameful and troubling decision by a Court that is showing itself to be more partisan and extreme every day. Striking down this century-old common sense gun safety law will make communities more dangerous—but we cannot let it stop our fight to end gun violence. twitter.com/cnn/status/154…
I was proud to support bipartisan legislation to establish an independent Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) that will accelerate new medical innovation to make possible breakthroughs to treat & cure deadly diseases—including childhood cancers.
Our @AppropsDems SFOPS subcommittee worked late this evening marking up our FY23 appropriations. I successfully secured resources to strengthen our foreign service workforce, aid Uyghurs fleeing persecution, and support the critical work of Peace Corps around the globe. twitter.com/AppropsDems/st…
Too many Virginians struggling with mental health and substance abuse can’t get the help they need. I just voted to pass our bipartisan #RestoringHope bill to strengthen mental health support, invest in treatment and recovery services, & bolster the behavioral health workforce.
Thanks for coming to visit the Capitol today, @girlscouts Troop 80168! I always love the opportunity to meet with Virginians eager to learn more about public service, and I was so impressed by the questions these young women had for me.
I'm encouraged by the bipartisan progress the Senate has made on this legislation—the most consequential gun safety bill in decades. While it’s not as comprehensive as I’d like, it will save lives and make our communities safer. I look forward to supporting it in the House. twitter.com/CBSEveningNews…
I had a great meeting with Taiwan lawmakers @FreddyLim & @hungsunhan. I reiterated my strong support for the U.S.–Taiwan relationship and discussed ways to deepen economic & trade relations. Support for Taiwan in the face of increased Chinese aggression is a bipartisan priority.
