Homeless, pregnant cared for

More funding for the Marianas to provide services for homeless young people and additional protections for pregnant workers in the workplace—those are two proposals I cosponsored and the Education and Labor Committee passed on Tuesday. H.R. 5191, the Runaway and Homeless Youth and Trafficking Act of 2019 strengthens federal programs the Marianas is eligible for. H.R. 2694, the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act will help pregnant workers continue working without putting their health at risk or the health of their unborn child. Both bills were negotiated with bipartisan support and will now be considered by the full House.
