The omnibus passed last night extends the Health Coverage Tax Credit for another year. Many Delphi Salaried Retirees rely on HCTC to afford health care. This re-authorization of a key tax credit that makes health care more affordable for these retirees is a strong step forward, and I will continue to advocate for a long term reauthorization of this credit.
I have long advocated for the end of surprise medical billing for those that are rushed to medical care in out of network healthcare facilities.

With the support of Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10), the House passed an omnibus funding and COVID-19 relief bill.

I am proud to support this year’s National Defense Authorization Act that puts America first. I’ve worked with my colleagues across the aisle to achieve this final bill, which invests $58.5 million in infrastructure at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, addresses the Department of Defense’s needs in the pandemic, modernizes the nuclear triad, increases diversity within our ranks, and includes provisions to prevent military sexual assault.
