U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici says the current impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump may draw most of the public's attention, but the House is working on other issues affecting people's lives.

As an example, Bonamici said, a House subcommittee she leads has produced a bill (HR 4334) to extend federal spending authority under the Older Americans Act, which was originally passed in 1965.

"I know that with people living longer, we want people to be able to retire and live in dignity in their senior years," she said. "So this bill helps fund programs" such as Meals on Wheels and other nutrition efforts, and support for caregivers.
