It was great to meet with Congresswoman-elect Lauren Underwood today. I’m pleased to have her powerful voice join us in Congress next year and am confident she will be an important partner for those of us seeking to help the hardworking people of Illinois.

I joined last night to talk about how the Trump Administration is failing tens of thousands of student Veterans who have yet to receive the GI benefits they earned and how the President failed to honor our nation’s heroes during Veterans Day weekend.

It’s critical the EPA takes action on this public health crisis. We will not stop demanding transparency and accountability from the EPA until the people of Illinois can be certain they are breathing safe, clean air.

Roughly 22 billion gallons of untreated sewage and storm water are discharged into the Great Lakes each year, threatening the health and livelihoods of the tens of millions of Americans who depend on it as their source for drinking water.

My heart goes out to the far too many who’ve already lost loved ones to these terrible fires throughout California + to every family that’s still in harm’s way. And to our incredible first responders: thank you—you have my deepest gratitude, as always.

Proud of the work is doing to hire more Veterans through its VetTech program. Veterans have the technical training and talent, and their unique set of skills are easily adaptable for these new roles in civilian life.
