Education is the most pressing issue. If we can't provide and equitable and educational pipeline, then we are setting our youth up for failure.
Access to early voting should be a on the table. In the 21st century we should have more options available.
There are several to choose from, however whatever is addressing fair funding for our schools, I'm on board
I believe thatbour Caucus put forth some great legislation. We just need the Senate to pass it.
