It’s time for us to come together as a nation to address the opioid epidemic and do everything in our power to end it. Thank you to the #WHRecoverySummit for having me, and for making a commitment to end this crisis.
Today, I attended the #WHRecoverySummit with some our nation’s leaders fighting on the forefront of the addiction crisis. Working together, we can save countless lives. Thank you to @SecondGentleman, @SecMartyWalsh, @DrGupta46, @SAMHSA_Leader, & @RepDean for your leadership!
I proudly cast my vote to make Maryland communities safer. These bills will fund local police and ensure they have the tools to better serve Marylanders – all while building stronger relationships between communities and the officers sworn to protect them. https://trone.house.gov/2022/09/22/7076/

Did you know that the U.S. has regained ALL jobs lost during the pandemic? Even better, #MD06 has actually created 16,200 new jobs! With the #CHIPSAct, #InfrastructureLaw, and the #InflationReductionAct, our local economies will create good-paying jobs for years to come.
I'm proud to receive an A rating from @ActForParks! Maryland is home to 18 wonderful national parks that Americans enjoy visiting every year. It's vital that we preserve our historic lands and natural resources.
