Organization: Office of Senator Robert Casey

Location: Washington, DC

Student Name and Class Year:  Mary Gilligan, 2015

Organization description: Bob Casey believes that public service is a privilege and that he was elected to fight for Pennsylvania priorities and Pennsylvania values. He is working to foster financial security for American families, improve the lives of our children, increase opportunities for the middle class and protect our national security interests.

As a member of the Finance Committee, Senator Casey has made it his top priority to create Pennsylvania jobs and grow the U.S. economy.  Senator Casey has introduced legislation to make it easier for small businesses to plan for capital investments that are vital to job creation and voted to provide billions for tax cuts to encourage businesses to hire workers.  He has continuously fought against unfair trade policies that put American manufacturing at a disadvantage. He has pushed for the U.S. government to take stronger action against China in response to the undervaluing of its currency and other policies that result in American job loss. He also voted for legislation to eliminate tax incentives corporations receive to send U.S. jobs overseas.

Casey serves on five Senate committees: Finance; Health, Education, Labor and Pensions; Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry; the Special Committee on Aging; and the Joint Economic Committee.
