It is my great privilege to serve the 6th District in Congress.
Throughout my time in Congress, I’ve fought tirelessly to pass legislation, signed into law by President Biden, to lower the carbon footprint of the federal government and position Illinois to lead in clean energy innovation. We passed legislation through the House to lower costs for families - from child care to prescription drugs. And, I was proud to co-sponsor the Women’s Health Protection Act to codify Roe. into law.
I’m proud of the support we've given to our constituents, whether that's getting a passport expedited or getting their IRS check processed or helping families with missing tax returns. I’m proud to have held over 50 town halls, because my constituents are my bosses and it’s my job to be accountable and accessible to the people I represent.
I have dedicated my entire life to combatting the greatest crisis our planet faces—climate change. Whether it was as a scientist working in a lab to create sustainable fuel, as an entrepreneur helping companies transition to renewable energy, or as a Member of Congress, climate change has been, and always will be, my top issue.
I have written and passed legislation to better quantify the risks of climate change to our financial system, to fund R&D programs in the hard-to-decarbonize industries and energy storage sector and to accelerate the deployment of cleaner, cheaper technologies that still provide us with all the useful energy our economy requires.
The sooner we realize that green energy is cheaper energy, the sooner we can create a more stable future for our children.
I am running for office to combat the climate crisis because it is the most existential threat that we face. I’m incredibly proud to have passed legislation to lower the carbon footprint of the federal government, invest in and develop clean energy technologies, and safeguard our financial institutions against the most devastating impacts of the climate crisis.
I am running to protect a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions. I co-sponsored the Women’s Health Protection Act to enshrine Roe into law, and I led over 114 of my colleagues in calling on the Senate to abolish the filibuster and send this bill to President Biden’s desk.
I am running to lower costs for families, like gas prices and prescription drugs. I introduced legislation to provide direct cash rebates to consumers dealing with gas prices and helped pass legislation to cap the cost of insulin at $35/month.
