I was proud to stand with colleagues and “Dreamers” in support of legislation for access to higher education. The bill would help students in the 92nd district and my own neighborhood, among others, who pay tuition and fees at public colleges, but are not eligible for financial aid due to a quirk in our law.
Since I have become a legislator, women’s preventative health care and access to contraception have been priorities. Given the real threat that Congress will repeal the Affordable Care Act, legislative actions by states are more important than ever. I am backing legislation affirms our commitment to policies covered by ACA.
