|This week, I had the opportunity to host a “daughter” for national “Take Our Daughters to Work” Day. As the mom of a son, I look forward to this opportunity made possible by Women’s Policy, Inc. and Girls Inc. every year. It is such an awesome way to show a young girl what a “day in the life” of a Congresswoman really looks like.
My “daughter” on Thursday was a bright 8th grade girl named Raegia, who has a bubbly and outgoing personality and who aspires to be a lawyer. She joined me during a committee markup, toured the Capitol, and we chatted over a lunch of cookies about life. Check out some of our photos below!
I was also honored to have legislation pass out of the Energy & Commerce Committee this week. My legislation is straightforward — it requires the Federal Communications Commission to publish new rules online within 24 hours of being adopted. This rule creates accountability of a bureaucratic agency and ushers in transparency into an agency that is often shrouded in mystery. Click here to read more about this legislation.
