New senators elected last November were sent to Washington to help lead the country in a new direction. There has been progress - not enough, but some progress - toward helping veterans, improving conditions for working people, making college more affordable, increasing access to health care, cleaning up our environment and cleaning up Congress itself.
The freshman class of senators has worked together on many issues. Legislation to make America more secure, strengthen our economy, and restore accountability to Washington are among the accomplishments.
