Legislative Achievements

When Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan first came to Washington in 2009, the country was in crisis. Work in the U.S. Congress went into overdrive with Members staying until the early hours of the morning to pass legislation meant alleviate the economic hardships of many Americans.

Congressman Kilili did not allow the Northern Marianas to be left behind. Working with other Members of the U.S. House of Representatives, and the U.S. Senate, too,  he made sure that the Marianas is included in major pieces of legislations that gave funding to states and territories. In his first term alone, he managed to insert language in eight laws that benefited the commonwealth.

And his legislative accomplishments continue.
