WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Tony Cárdenas (CA-29) releases the following statement on the 56th anniversary of the passage of the Equal Pay Act:
Yesterday, Congressman Tony Cárdenas spoke about the Energy and Commerce Committee’s comprehensive infrastructure package called the Leading Infrastructure for Tomorrow’s America or LIFT Act. The LIFT Act includes the Clean Commute for Kids Act and the Low Income Solar Act, two bills championed by Rep. Cárdenas.
Today, I am introducing the Ending Debtor’s Prison for Kids Act. We need to eliminate the cruel practice of collecting fines and fees that keep children in jail and American families in debt.
Today, Reps. Tony Cárdenas (D-CA), Jim Banks (R-IN), Filemon Vela (D-TX), and Susan Brooks (R-IN) introduced the Eliminate From Regulators Opportunities to Nationalize The Internet in Every Respect Act (E-FRONTIER Act). This bill would safeguard the commercial 5G broadband networks from nationalization without authorization from Congress. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen.
As an elected official for over 20 years, I have made it a priority throughout my career to fix our criminal justice system so that more Americans can be set on a path to succeed.
Today, I am proud to introduce a resolution in the House of Representatives recognizing the late César Chávez. This resolution honors the life of the labor leader who organized migrant and farm laborers in the western United States. I am thankful that 70 of my colleagues in Congress have committed to support this bill, and will advocate for its passage in the People’s House.
Today, I voted to lower healthcare costs and give the American people and my constituents in the San Fernando Valley more access to affordable healthcare and affordable prescription drugs. I am keeping my promise to the American people to lower healthcare costs. Actions speak louder than words.
