Lawmakers are heading back to Capitol Hill after the Thanksgiving break with a lot to accomplish before the end of the year.

Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici sat down with KATU’s Deb Knapp before the holiday weekend for a conversation on what she hopes to accomplish after Congress resumes.

“My number one priority is to make sure we get to the end of the year, getting done what we need to get done,” Rep. Bonamici said. “Keeping the government open, funding the Children’s Health Insurance Program… I hope we can pass the DREAM Act and we can protect our ‘dreamers’ who are here in Oregon and across the country.”

She also said she hopes to see the GOP’s tax bill stopped in the Senate.

During their discussion, Bonamici also shared her thoughts on tax reform, opportunities for job growth in Oregon, and what can be done to stop sexual harassment in the workplace.

“Women need to feel safe, women deserve to feel safe and be safe at the workplace," Bonamici said.
