With a district bordering Canada, Brian is a recognized leader on matters related to the US-Canadian relationship.  In his roles as Co-chair of the Northern Border Caucus, Co-chair of Canada-US Inter-Parliamentary Group, and a member of the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Trade, Brian seeks out opportunities to build our binational relationship, fighting for adequate staffing and systems t

Transportation & Infrastructure

For decades the U.S. has underinvested in our infrastructure and America’s roads, bridges, water systems and sewer lines are in desperate need of repair. Brian has fought to change that since his early years in Congress with his Nation Building Here at Home Act, investing over $1.2 trillion in America’s infrastructure, rebuilding our communities, creating economic opportunity and growing jobs.

Education

Every child has a right to a quality education. Starting with a high-quality early education and continuing throughout a student’s educational experience, education should focus on individual development and college readiness more than just test scores, investing in a teacher workforce second to none, and repairing and rebuilding our nation’s classrooms, so that every child has the opportunity to succeed. And when it comes to college and technical schools, financial barriers should never dictate whether or not a student can pursue higher education.

Environment

Brian is a supporter of the Affordable Care Act recognizing the law was a beginning, not an end to expanding, improving, and providing more affordable healthcare options for Americans.  He supports legislation aimed at bringing down the cost of prescription drug prices and is a lead sponsor of a bill that would allow people ages 50-64 to buy into Medicare early. 

Medicare at 50

Seniors

Prior to its creation in 1965, only 50 percent of seniors had health insurance. Today, Medicare provides one of the most important guarantees in our society – the guarantee that if you are an older American and you get sick, you will get the care that you need without going broke.

Veterans & Military

Caring for our veterans and active military involves more than thanking them for their service. As veterans return home, our nation has an obligation to assist them in preparing to reenter into civilian life, including access to earned benefits, education, jobs and opportunities.

Waterfront

Brian has long believed in a simple formula for waterfront development: remove the barriers to public access, provide high-quality public destinations along the water’s edge, and economic growth, private development and opportunity will follow.
