It is with enormous happiness that I come here today, having served as a staff member for six and a half years on this committee, under both Senator Murray and Senator Sanders. I am currently the senior director of Federal Budget Policy at the Center for American Progress, working to ensure the federal budget prioritizes policies that help the most vulnerable people.
