Cancer is the second leading cause of death for children, yet, only four percent of cancer research funds go to children. That's why I'm reintroducing the Jonny Wade Pediatric Cancer Research Act, to fund research of pediatric diseases, including cancer. Jonny Wade was a remarkable young man, unwavering in his faith and mission to make sure no child has cancer. I am honored to again introduce this legislation with the Wade family so we can continue Jonny’s mission and beat pediatric cancer once and for all.

I’m proud to support the men and women of law enforcement in Congress. They have a tough job, and we should be doing everything we can to support them. We can start by increasing funding for law enforcement and making sure they have the resources they need to do their jobs and keep our communities safe. We should also reject calls from some Democrats who want to ‘defund the police.’ It’s one of the most dangerous ideas I’ve ever heard. I wouldn’t be alive today if it weren’t for the brave actions of two Capitol Police officers who ran towards gunfire. I’m proud to reintroduce the David Dorn Back the Blue Act and stand with law enforcement officers in Illinois and across the country.
