Last week, I questioned Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler on EPA’s failure to proactively inspect and enforce facilities like Sterigenics, which knowingly pollute our air. I won’t rest until I know EPA has a comprehensive plan to protect every Illinoisan.

Unfortunately, with the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh, those same rights are at greater risk than they have been for generations. I’ll keep fighting to keep the government out of private decisions between a woman and her doctor.
