Co-sponsored Legislation
H.R.1595 - SAFE Banking Act of 2019

Comments

"Many of those laws (especially as relate to zoning) are not federally jurisdictional, but I would support decriminalization of marijuana and an elimination of “3 strikes” rules to reduce incarceration rates for all Americans.  It is also critically important that we enforce voting rights laws that have been used to disenfranchise minority communities.

More generally, I will always consider laws surrounding racial justice from a vantage point of correcting past sins rather than glossing over the uglier parts of our history." 10/1/18
