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.

Gender should have no bearing on a paycheck, which is why Jon is sponsoring legislation like the Paycheck Fairness Act and the Even the Playing Field Act to end the gender pay gap. Equal work deserves equal worth. It’s as simple as that.

Jon knows that the federal government shouldn’t stand between a woman and her doctor and that all Montanans deserve high quality care. He firmly believes in a woman’s private right to make her own health care decisions without interference from the government and opposes putting women and doctors in jail when exercising this long held right. He is helping to lead the fight in Congress to guarantee privacy for women to make their own medical decisions.

Jon also continues to support Title X family planning programs despite recent challenges in the courts, and backs Planned Parenthood funding. Jon is working with bipartisan partners in pushing the Department of Veterans Affairs to take steps to improve the quality of care for women veterans.

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.
