"I am excited to get to work in the 116th Congress with the new Democratic majority in the House of Representatives. The American people deserve a Congress that puts their priorities ahead of special interests, invests in scientific research and embraces facts, and takes its oversight responsibility seriously. I'm eager to work alongside Chairwoman Waters on the Financial Services Committee to protect consumers, strengthen our economy, and tackle new challenges technology poses for our banks and financial institutions. I am also ready to be part of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology with Chairwoman Johnson who will finally take science seriously as we tackle challenges like climate change and renewable energy sources. I look forward to working with so many new faces in the U.S. House, including new Members from Illinois, to pursue an agenda that reflects the values of our country and hardworking Americans."
