On the Health and Trade Subcommittees, he has worked to lift up small businesses, create good-paying jobs and protect families’ financial security. Congressman Kind was a major force in improving the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement for the security of America’s workers and for the safety of our environment.

His environmental leadership, serving fifteen years on the Natural Resources Committee, has left a strong legacy of progress for Wisconsin, including through his work to preserve and protect the Mississippi River and Wisconsin’s natural heritage.
