Sponsored Legislation

One of the most important aspects of Congress is developing, making, and monitoring legislation. As a Member of Congress, I am trying to be actively involved in sponsoring and drafting legislation about issues that are important to you. Please contact my offices to share your thoughts on current legislation that may affect you, your family and your community.

You can find a list of bills that I have sponsored and cosponsored at Thomas.gov.
