Every child deserves a healthy future. I'm so glad to see that Chicago Public Schools and Evanston/Skokie School District 65 will benefit from the Clean School Bus Program. This program, made possible by President Joe Biden's Infrastructure Law, will replace dirty diesel school buses with clean electric buses.

This is a critical step in the fight against climate change and will improve air quality in our community and across the nation. I'll continue to work with my colleagues to support measures that protect the right of all, especially our kids, to a safe and habitable climate.

Green resolutions are top priority as EPA jump starts the new year with Program announcements of nearly $1 billion in awards for electric and clean school buses! This funding will help 280 school districts purchase over 2,700 buses, delivering cleaner air for communities. https://www.epa.gov/newsreleases/biden-harris-administration-announces-nearly-1b-awards-clean-school-buses-across

Join EPA Administrator Michael Regan LIVE at 10AM EST to announce nearly $1 billion of funding through EPA’s Clean School Bus Program’s grants competition! 🚌

Three years ago, a violent mob of election deniers, sent by Donald Trump, stormed the US Capitol, the heart of our democracy. They attempted a coup and tried to overturn the results of our election.

I’ll never forget that day, and I’ll never stop fighting to protect our democracy.

In all my years as a Member of Congress, I’ve never experienced a year quite like this. Despite the chaos and dysfunction caused by my GOP colleagues, I was proud to deliver for the residents of the 9th Congressional District.

It’s the honor of a lifetime to serve you in Congress. In 2024, I vow to continue fighting for a more equitable and just world.

I’m proud to serve as a Co-founder & Co-chair of the Task Force on Aging & Families.

We are committed to expanding earned benefits like Social Security & Medicare.

It was great to join Westminster Place residents this week to discuss our efforts to protect older Americans.

This year, the city of Chicago and Cook County launched 2-1-1, a free and easy-to-access helpline.

The phones are answered 24/7 by an operator who is there to listen to your problem and give referrals.

Now, getting assistance from social service agencies is easier than ever!

Young people have taken on incredible responsibility to protect our environment.🌎 I stand with Our Children's Trust and the young plaintiffs in Genesis v. EPA.

We all must do our part. I'll continue fighting everyday in Congress to protect the right of all to a safe and habitable climate.

The House GOP spent the entire year playing political games, and nearly shut down our government twice.

When Democrats were in charge last Congress, we passed landmark legislation that lowered costs and created jobs.

Every day, 37 people die in drunk-driving crashes.

Thanks to the tireless work of advocates and survivors, President Joe Biden’s Infrastructure Law will soon require drunk-driving prevention technology in all new cars.

These deaths are preventable, and this technology will save lives.

Hey GOP, hands off our Social Security!

Extremist Republicans, led by Speaker Johnson, are trying to establish a fiscal commission designed to slash the entire federal budget, including Americans' hard-earned Social Security.

Read more in my Common Dreams op-ed below.

House Speaker Mike Johnson knows how important Social Security is to hard-working Americans, so he has devised an accountability-free way to gut it.

Community is at the heart of Evanston Township High School (ETHS).

The students and administrators I spoke with yesterday are a true testament as to why ETHS ranks amongst the top schools in the state and nation.

Our future will be in good hands with these changemakers.

This afternoon, I toured the site of the horrific Yellow Line train crash.

I want to thank Chairwoman Jennifer Homendy and the National Transportation Safety Board for their outstanding leadership and swift action. I have full confidence they will get to the bottom of what happened.

Wishing all involved a speedy recovery.

Medicare Advantage plans are overcharging US taxpayers $140 billion per year. If that money went to traditional Medicare, it would be enough to cover dental, hearing, & vision for every senior over 65.

🚨Private, for-profit insurance, aka Medicare Advantage, isn’t Medicare!

I was so happy to meet with Avery Jenkins, an 8-year-old constituent who is working to put together hair kits with products and tools for highly-textured hair to give to foster children in need. Avery told me that she wants people to feel good about their hair, and feel confident in themselves. I'm so proud of you, Avery, and the difference you are making!

Yesterday, I had the honor of congratulating and welcoming 123 new citizens who have come to the United States from 44 different countries!

As a first generation American myself, I was thrilled to be there for this special day.

Too many women have received an ‘all clear’ after a mammogram only to discover later that cancer was hidden by their dense breast tissue. Women with dense breasts are 4-5 times more likely to get breast cancer than those without dense breast tissue.

We must strengthen access to additional testing, to ensure that women with dense breasts can know for certain that they are cancer-free. I'm a proud cosponsor of Rosa DeLauro's Find It Early Act to ensure all health insurance plans cover screening and diagnostic breast imaging.

Every House Republican just supported Mike Johnson for Speaker. He led the charge to overturn the 2020 election, wants to cut and privatize Social Security, & introduced a national 'Don't Say Gay' bill.

This is the direction the extremists in the GOP want to take our country.

No matter what, House Democrats stand united to deliver for the American people.

We are ready to find common ground to lower costs, protect our communities, and strengthen our national security. The American people deserve a Congress that fights for them.

Great news! The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
and Administration for Children and Families announced that families in Illinois will receive over $176 million to help lower heating costs.

For decades, the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program has helped ensure that families stay warm and safe during the winter season!

The past two weeks have been absolutely horrifying and heartbreaking, but today, we got a message of hope. Today, I received word that two of my constituents, Judith and Natalie Raanan, a mother and daughter from Evanston who were being held hostage by Hamas, have been released.

They are currently in good hands with the Red Cross, but I cannot wait to welcome them back home. I am sending them my love and strength.

I will continue to pray and do all I can to ensure the safe and swift return of all other hostages held by Hamas.

Medicare Open Enrollment is now underway! Go to https://www.medicare.gov/ for more information.

Thanks to Democrats, we now cap out-of-pocket Rx costs for Medicare beneficiaries. Further, seniors will continue to save on free vaccines and $35 a month insulin.

Please remember that Medicare Advantage isn't traditional Medicare.

We are not giving up on the fight for reproductive justice and bodily autonomy. As the far-right extremists in the GOP continue to push for a nationwide abortion ban, we will not back down.

Abortion is health care and health care is a human right. When we fight, we win.
