Always inspirational meeting with and learning from Womens Transportation Seminar, @WTS_Portland. Great people, doing great things.

Delighted Hillary has announced she's running for president. Time for Americans to compare her vision & record to the Republican candidates.
We should keep up this bipartisan momentum & deal with transportation funding next to rebuild and renew America.The renewal of the Secure Rural Schools program is a huge benefit for Oregon providing much needed funds for counties & schools.Passage of #SGR reform to stabilize Medicare is amazing. It's encouraging to see such bipartisan support w/ 180 Ds & 212 Rs voting yes.
It's time to listen to science and pass legislation like PAMTA to better regulate antibiotics before it's too late. #SaveABX
