Congressman David Trone Releases Statement on Priorities in the 118th Congress 

Congressman David Trone (D-MD) released the following statement outlining his priorities for the 118th Congress: 

“My mission in Congress has always been clear: we must bring compassion, civility, and competence back to Washington. That’s how we get stuff done and make a real difference in people’s lives. As we look forward to the 118th Congress, I have a lot of hope that we’ll be able to deliver more wins to the American people. 

“In Washington, while we have a Republican-controlled House, I believe that we’ll still be able to make headway. We must focus on the things that we can agree on – from combatting our nation’s opioid epidemic, to solving the mental health crisis, to reforming our criminal justice system. These are the issues that have left no town, no neighborhood, and no home untouched. These are the issues that we can work together to solve. 

“We’ve already been successful in achieving landmark, historic legislation with the help of both Republicans and Democrats. There’s no doubt in my mind that we can do that again. Last Congress, we passed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to rebuild our country’s crumbling roads and bridges; the Chips and Science Act to strengthen our supply chains – and create over one million jobs while doing so; the Inflation Reduction Act to lower health care costs for folks, especially our seniors, including capping insulin costs at $35 a month for Medicare recipients; and the Restoring Hope for Mental Health and Well-Being Act to combat our nation’s addiction and mental health crises. 

“Getting these bills over the finish line and signed into law wasn’t easy, but we were up for the challenge, we reached across the aisle, we listened to what folks had to say, and we got it done. That’s what good government is about, and that’s what I’ll continue to do as I serve you in the 118th Congress. Now, let’s get to work!”
