In Portland today hearing from entrepreneurs who are women & people of color about the uphill battle they face getting the capital they need to grow their businesses & create jobs. Fixing this lack of access to capital is urgent business both for fairness and a strong economy.

By ensuring that Mexican workers’ rights are protected, we prevent a race to the bottom and level the playing field for workers in Oregon, Ohio and across the country.

The many improvements include a new rapid-response mechanism for labor enforcement that and I advocated for that establishes the strongest enforcement of labor standards ever written into a U.S. trade agreement.

I have long said NAFTA was in desperate need of an update to ensure Canada and Mexico live up to their side of the deal. The agreement Speaker Pelosi secured does exactly that.

I am pulling out all the stops to get this legislation included in any end of the year funding package so that rural communities aren't left in the lurch unable to pay for vital resources like schools, roads, and bridges.

Secure Rural Schools has been a lifeline for rural communities in Oregon. Today, the Energy and Natural Resources Committee passed my bipartisan bill with to get lapsed SRS funding reauthorized for two more years and get communities off the financial roller coaster.

If these Republicans actually care about these abuses, they will stop stonewalling and join forces with those of us working to implement badly-needed reforms.

I hope those who suddenly care about FISA reform are triply concerned about ways in which the government spies on Americans by secretly reinterpreting the law and bypassing the Court altogether.

Just last year, the vast majority of Republicans in the Senate voted to reauthorize Section 702 and to prevent any consideration of badly-needed reform amendments. It’s time for Congress to reform Section 702 and Section 215 of FISA and protect Americans’ Fourth Amendment rights.

If you’re concerned about how the government gets a FISA warrant, just wait until you hear about FISA programs that don’t require warrants at all, like Section 702, and Section 215, which is up for reauthorization.

Congress must consider legislation that allows independent amici to review and weigh in on everything the FISA Court does and ensure that Americans charged with crimes as a result of FISA surveillance know about it and can challenge that surveillance.
