Money in Politics and Democracy Reform

Our Democracy can’t work unless it works for you. I’ve heard from people across Burlington and Ocean Counties on their concerns about too much money in politics and a lack of bipartisan cooperation in Congress. This is why one of my first actions as your Member of Congress was to help introduce H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which would help clean up money in politics, protect our elections from foreign interference, and strengthen our ethics laws. I also helped lead the way to introduce bills that end harmful partisan government shutdowns and stood up against a pay raise for Congress.

Check out what I’m doing to restore our Democracy and help make our institutions work for you:

H.R.1451 — Alice Paul Voter Protection Act
H.R.1 — For the People Act of 2019
H.J.Res.2 — Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relating to contributions and expenditures intended to affect elections.
H.R.645 — Automatic Voter Registration Act
H.R.834 — The Shutdown to End All Shutdowns Act
H.R.1176 — Transparency in Corporate Political Spending Act
H.R.4 — Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2019
H.R.2977 — DISCLOSE Act of 2019
H.R.3260 — No Raise for Congress Act
H.R.3843 — Countering Russian and Other Overseas Kleptocracy Act
H.R.5016 — Fair and Clear Campaign Transparency Act
H.R.5015 — Honest Campaigns Act of 2019
