UPDATE: We have a deal to reopen the government and avert an economic collapse. I will vote for this agreement.

We need to move past this manufactured crisis so we can get to work on the important issues that Congress still needs to address.

I have directed my office to work with federal agencies as soon as they reopen to quickly restore services to people and businesses in Northwest Washington. A lot of people have been hurt by the shutdown, and I am committed to alleviating as much of that damage as possible.

Over the next few months, I will be focused on contributing to a long-term budget that cuts our deficit and makes job-creating investments in transportation and education. Congress also needs to return to its work on reforming our broken immigration system because reform will improve the economy in Northwest Washington and make our community stronger.

After 16 days of unnecessary shutdown, it's not a day for self-congratulation. Just time to refocus on why we were sent to Congress in the first place.

I'm hearing from a lot of constituents who are still fired up over the NSA's surveillance programs. I am too. I just sent a letter detailing some of the reforms I think are necessary. Read the full letter here and let me know what you think: http://go.usa.gov/jmqH

Like I told the +Everett Herald, if there was any lingering concern about the future of our naval bases, this news will lay it to rest.

The right to marry must no longer be restricted. Today the Supreme Court starts considering challenges to anti-same sex marriage laws and the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act. Plus if you support marriage equality.

HUGE NEWS! President Obama will designate a national monument in the San Juan Islands! I've been working on this with the local community for four years. Preserves vital lands for future generations. Big boost for the San Juans.

It’s time to make room, because the P-8As are coming to NAS Whidbey Island. The Navy is making a big investment to get the base ready for the planes. Great news for Whidbey Island!
