One of the most important aspects of Congress is developing, making, and monitoring laws. New laws are created every week. As a Member of Congress, I am 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 our community.

H.R. 1096: The Real Choice for Veterans Act: This bill would give veterans in Southwest Alabama and across the country greater access to private care instead of forcing veterans to travel miles out of the way.
