Happy birthday to my friend @RepRaulRuizMD from #CA36. Thank you for your leadership as Chair of the @HispanicCaucus, and for bringing your expertise as a doctor to our work in Congress to address COVID-19 and advance health equity nationwide.
I welcome Omar Muhammad as the new Chair of @MDTEDCO. I applaud his historic appointment as the first African American Chair, and thank him for his commitment to an equitable approach to supporting our entrepreneurs and businesses as we work to build back better from COVID-19.…
I join in congratulating College of Southern Maryland Vice President Ellen Flowers-Fields on her new appointment at @MDTEDCO. Her valuable knowledge of small businesses and economic development make her a tremendous fit for the job ahead.…
Yesterday we voted for justice. For fairness. For equality. For democracy. For good trouble. For all those who sacrificed for the right of all Americans to vote.   We voted for the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. #RestoreTheVote

Glad to see 200,000+ Marylanders #GetCovered during the extended open enrollment period. Affordable health care is crucial to the well-being of #MD05 families; I will continue working to strengthen the #ACA & ensure more people have access to care.
Proud to join @SpeakerPelosi, @RepTerriSewell, & other House Dems following the passage of #HR4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. Today was a victory in our efforts to #RestoreTheVote, & we’ll keep working to get this bill to @POTUS’ desk.
The last several days were a remarkable look at the unity of our Caucus, and our collective commitment to #BuildBackBetter. While we had many discussions and worked through our different opinions, in the end we delivered a unanimous vote #ForThePeople.
This afternoon, I spoke on the Floor in strong support of #HR4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, named after my dear friend. This bill restores the full protections of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 & is imperative to strengthen our democracy.
Watch live as I join @SpeakerPelosi, @RepTerriSewell, and House Democrats for a press conference on #HR4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, which was passed by House Democrats this evening to restore voting rights #ForThePeople.
Finally, I spoke to reporters about the situation in Afghanistan. I commend the heroic service members & embassy staff on the ground saving lives under challenging conditions. We must continue to adapt & ramp up our evacuation efforts as the situation evolves.
I also said the House will vote today on an imperative for the strength of our democracy, #HR4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, named for my brother who risked his life to advance the right to vote & whose memory continues to guide our work to #RestoreTheVote.
At my weekly press conference, I told press that the rule voted on by the House today will allow us to advance @POTUS#BuildBackBetter agenda & #HR4. Passing this three bills will help us protect voting rights and expand economic opportunity #ForThePeople.
Today I spoke on the Floor in support of a Rule that will advance the people's business in three critical areas. This rule allows the House to act on the #BuildBackBetter Act, proceed on #HR4, and advance the bipartisan infrastructure bill that invests in American workers.
Have you been waiting until the FDA provided full approval to get the COVID vaccine? Now is the time! Marylanders can find a location offering the fully-approved Pfizer vaccine w/ the link below & take a vital step to protect themselves and our community.
Earlier today, @US_FDA announced full approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. I encourage all Americans to get vaccinated and do their part to protect their loved ones and their communities. Learn more and make an appointment to #GetTheShot at

I am grateful to the brave men and women of @CapitolPolice for their heroic work to keep the U.S. Capitol safe today and every day.
It was a pleasure to meet with @moh_choudhury today to discuss our priorities in education for the school year ahead. I believe he will be an excellent leader for MD schools, & I thank him for his long-standing work on behalf of our children & families.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused economic hardships & led many families to fall behind on rent. I held a roundtable today to receive updates from #MD05 county & state government leaders on their work to provide renters & homeowners w/ emergency assistance.
I join @RepBarbaraLee, Chair of our Task Force on Poverty & Opportunity & @RepJimMcGovern in applauding @POTUS for revising nutrition standards for SNAP, prompting the largest permanent increase to nutritional benefits for families in program history.
Today I met with Southern Maryland businesses & local government officials to discuss the 7/2 ransomware attack. I'll continue to advocate on behalf of MD businesses to strengthen our cyber defenses to prevent attacks like this one from happening again.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, many Maryland families are struggling to keep a roof over their heads. At 2 pm today, I’ll be joined by housing leaders to discuss the emergency rental assistance available for those who need it most. Tune in:
We also must do everything possible to ensure all those who wish to leave can safely access the airport.
We must get Americans and our allies to safety, including SIVs, Afghans eligible for preferred refugee programs, and other at-risk Afghans. We cannot leave behind those who bravely worked alongside our troops, diplomats, and NGOs for the past two decades.
I join in thanking the members of our armed forces who have secured the airport in Kabul in the absence of Afghan security forces, and the dedicated US embassy staff who together with our service members are allowing evacuations to continue.
I am honored to join @RepTerriSewell & colleagues in introducing a long-standing priority: #HR4, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. I will bring this essential bill to the House Floor for a vote next week & urge strong support.
Congress has a duty to the American people to preserve, protect, & defend the right to vote. I am proud to be a co-sponsor of #HR4, the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. It’s time to #RestoreTheVote & keep the promise of democracy alive for us all.
Happy birthday to my friend @RepDavidEPrice from #NC04, a leader in the effort to strengthen democracy around the world as Chair of the House Democracy Partnership. Thank you for your work as Chair of the @AppropsDems subcommittee on Transportation, Housing, & Urban Development.
Today, with enormous pride and endless gratitude for those who marched here before me, I will be standing at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama to announce the introduction of #HR4, the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, in the 117th Congress.

Happy birthday to my friend @RepElaineLuria. Thank you for your service to our country in the U.S. Navy & your leadership on behalf of military families in #VA02 as Vice Chair of @HASCDemocrats. I am glad to have your voice & expertise in the search for truth on @January6thCmte.
Wishing a happy birthday to my friend @RepMaxineWaters, who has been a tireless leader and strong advocate in the fight to protect American consumers and promote equity in financial services and housing across the country as Chairwoman of @FSCDems.
I am glad to see the @WhiteHouse has authorized a swift response focused on assessing the damaged areas and assisting the recovery elements on the ground. The United States will continue to stand with Haiti as they recover and rebuild.
I am heartbroken to see that once again the Haitian people are forced to reckon with the devastation caused by a tragic earthquake. My condolences are with the families of the victims, as well as those still searching for their loved ones amid the damage.

I will keep calling for additional studies of how improved staff benefits – including student loan repayment, child care, adoption, & fertility services, among others – will improve staff retention & ensure Congressional staff reflect the diversity of the country they represent.
I am grateful to @RepJeffries and @RepZoeLofgren for their partnership in the effort to include increased staff pay in the House-passed appropriations legislation and to @ModernizeCmte Chair @RepDerekKilmer and @RepAOC for their advocacy for Congressional staff pay increases.
I welcome @SpeakerPelosi's announcement de-linking Member & Congressional staff pay. For years, I have called for changes that will allow House employees to make higher salaries, improving our ability to retain talented & experienced staff #ForThePeople.
I’m grateful to @CarolforTexas & the TX Senate Democrats who fought against this shameful voter suppression bill passed by Texas Republicans. We will continue our work in Congress to advance voting rights legislation at the federal level to protect access to the ballot box.…
