Chrissy Houlahan on Technology

 

 


We need to prioritize a big infrastructure bill

Q [to CRENSHAW and HOULAHAN]: I know the two of you have made a vow to try to find at least one point of agreement that you can legislate around. Do you know what that's going to be?

REPRESENTATIVE-ELECT DAN CRENSHAW (R-TX-2): There's multiple points-- opioids, infrastructure issues. Different infrastructure issues around the country--but for us it's flood mitigation. The opioid epidemic is terrible. More people died of opioids last year than the entire Vietnam War.

REPRESENTATIVE-ELECT CHRISSY HOULAHAN (D-PA-6): Yep. I agree. Opioids is an enormous problem in our community as well. And a big infrastructure bill--

Q: Is that number one for you?

HOULAHAN: Absolutely.

CRENSHAW: And another thing I would bring up is workforce training issues. You know there are seven million job openings, which is a great problem to have. But we need middle skill labor to fill those jobs.

HOULAHAN: Yep.

Full funding for the Census; don't politicize it

Q: What steps will you take to ensure that the upcoming census is fully funded, accurate, and avoids under-counting?

Chrissy Houlahan: Our Census is the best and most important tool we have for knowing who we are as a community and as a nation. I support full funding for the Census so we can get an accurate picture of where America is fulfilling our promises of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, and just as importantly, where we are not. At its heart, our Census is a scientific achievement. I do not support efforts to politicize this process or compromise the quality and reliability of the information we get from it.
