THIS WEEK IN WASHINGTON JULY 8-12, 2019

THIS WEEK IN WASHINGTON

For the most recent information regarding my legislative work in Washington, please refer to my new weekly newsletter.  You can also follow me on Facebook - OfficialRepDannyDavis, Instagram - OfficialRepDannyDavis and Twitter - @RepDannyDavis.  While we are almost at the midpoint of this legislative cycle, we have been very successful in moving several of my legislative initiatives out of the Ways and Means tax committee. 

Back from the 4th of July recess the Congress debated and passed H.R. 2500 the National Defense Authorization Act.  This NDAA bill increased servicemembers pay by 3.1 percent, improved military housing, prohibited funding to be used for a border wall, prohibited funding to be used for housing children at the border and maintained a tough stance on Russia and continuing collaboration with allies. 

The Ways and Means Committee held a press conference and moved to pass legislation to fix multiemployer pension plans and guarantee retirees the full retirement benefits they deserve. In my district, $81 million in Central States pensions are at risk; in Illinois, over $3 billion.  These are the pensions of truckdrivers, coal miners, iron workers and more.
