Dear Friend,
For more than eight months I have worked with Fred Guttenberg to develop life-saving gun violence legislation in honor of his daughter, Jaime, who was tragically killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, 2018.

On Wednesday, I stood with Fred and Senator Richard Blumenthal to introduce Jaime's Law, requiring background checks on ammunition sales.

Under current law, individuals prohibited from purchasing a firearm are also prohibited from purchasing ammunition. But even though ammunition is every bit as necessary for the operation of a firearm as the firearm itself, federal law does not require a background check to prevent prohibited purchasers from acquiring ammunition. Jaime's law would close this ammunition loophole.

This week we held the Trump administration accountable and introduced legislation to protect the people:

  • The Committee on Oversight and Reform questioned Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross about adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census. He refused to answer my questions about relevant conversations with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
  • I asked the Interior Department if they're intentionally delaying or denying Freedom of Information Act requests to protect political appointees - including to retroactively protect former Secretary Ryan Zinke.
  • I am proud to be a cosponsor of the Equality Act, to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation; and the Dream and Promise Act, to create a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers and Temporary Protected Status recipients.
It is an honor to represent you in Washington, and fight on your behalf.
