Sea Lions

Guess who caught 46,000 returning salmon below Bonneville Dam in the last 10 years? Sea lions did. They don’t discriminate between endangered salmon species, and their numbers are exploding. Now, whole salmon runs are nearing extinction.

Standing up for Seniors

We must keep our promise to Americans who depend on programs like Social Security and Medicare. This means ensuring that these programs are strong now and in the future, and not raided by D.C. politicians to fuel government overspending.

Oregon Tolling

I’m fighting Oregon’s plan to place tolls on the I-5 and I-205 bridges, which would unfairly force Southwest Washington commuters to pay for Oregon infrastructure they barely use. Such a move would penalize Washington residents who must commute to work in Oregon, create no new lanes for congestion relief on I-5 or I-205, and would make it harder for both states to rebuild or update the aging I-5 bridge in the future.

Making health care more affordable, more available

Health care costs continue to impact families in all of our communities. Under the Affordable Care Act, rural residents have been treated like second-class citizens when it comes to health care access. Our country’s rate of maternal mortality lags behind the rest of the industrialized world. I think we deserve better, and that every individual should be able to get affordable, quality health care no matter who they are or where they live.

Protecting Public Lands

Our region is lucky to be home to majestic natural treasures like the Pacific Crest Trail and Mt. St. Helens. It is important we protect them for future generations to enjoy.
