Rep. Derek Kilmer (WA-06) is a native of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. In Congress he has worked to promote the local economy and responsibly steward the region’s natural resources. After serving in the state legislature, Kilmer was elected to Congress, where he serves on the Appropriations Committee, and the the Interior and Environment Subcommittee, Defense Subcommittee, and Energy and Water Development Subcommittee.
In office, Kilmer helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote. He introduced the Honest Ads Act, which would require that online ads have the same disclosure requirements as traditional advertising. Kilmer also introduced the Restoring Integrity to America’s Elections Act to reform the FEC.
