From health care to education, jobs and equal pay, Jon works hard every day on the issues that matter most to Montana women and ensures they have a voice in Congress.
Jon is sponsoring the Paycheck Fairness Act to end the gender pay gap, because equal work deserves equal worth-regardless of whether you're a man or a woman.
Jon also believes that no one should stand between a woman and her doctor. That's why he has continuously supported a woman's right to make her own health care decisions, Title X family planning programs, and Planned Parenthood funding.
Jon has always been surrounded by strong women, and every day he fights for policies to ensure that his granddaughters have the exact same opportunities to succeed as his grandsons.
