  • New Leadership in the New Congress

    As the new Chair of Energy and Commerce's Oversight and Investigations subcommittee, it is now my responsibility to ensure that some of our most prominent federal agencies are working in the best interest of Americans. I will work tirelessly to ensure that they are working for us -- and that means taking real, meaningful steps to combat climate change and make health care more affordable for all Americans. --Diana DeGette
  • Gun Violence Prevention

    Americans are demanding that Congress pass sensible gun safety legislation. I'm continuing my ongoing work to make these reforms a reality, which will help keep all of our communities safer.
  • Fulfilling DACA's Promise

    President Trump's decision to rescind DACA is a crushing blow to more than 17,000 DREAMers in Colorado, but our fight isn't over. I will continue working to pass legislation, such as the Dream Act, that helps these young men and women remain in this country and achieve their American dream.
