Civil Rights & Civil Liberties

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are the basic tenants afforded to all citizens of America.
In order to ensure Americans and my constituents in the First Congressional District are afford their life
to purse any liberty of their choosing in the pursuit of happiness, I am honored to have cosponsored a
few of the following laws and resolutions:

  • H.R. 1 For the People Act of 2019 providing for the expansion of voter registration, voting
    access, election integrity, election security, political spending, and ethics in all three branches of
    federal government.
  • H.R. 3 Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act to lower prescription drug cost and
    expand Medicare to cover dental, vision, and hearing care for Seniors
  • H.R. 1595 Secure and Fair Enforcement Banking Act of 2019 which prohibits federally regulated
    banks from penalizing or discouraging legitimate marijuana-related business in banking
  • H.R. 3884 Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act of 2019 which
    decriminalizes and deschedule cannabis while providing reinvestment in communities of color
    adversely affected by the War on Drugs. Individuals with cannabis related offenses are
    expected to receive expunged criminal records from this legislation.
