Senator Bob Casey
Bob Casey was raised to believe that "all public service is a trust, given in faith and accepted in honor." In eight years as Pennsylvania Auditor General and two years as State Treasurer, Bob Casey compiled a record that focused on making government more accountable and responsive to the needs of Pennsylvanians. He has been a fiscal watchdog who made nursing homes safer, child care more affordable and government more accountable. He led the fight to reform Megan’s Law to better protect Pennsylvania children and communities.
Since he was elected to the United States Senate in 2006, Senator Casey has worked to create family-sustaining jobs and foster financial security for Pennsylvania families; protect our children and invest in their futures; ensure safety at home and respect for America abroad; promote honesty and accountability in government; preserve the dignity of the vulnerable of all ages among us; and advocate for his constituents and help them solve problems they face.
As a United States Senator, Bob Casey has established a long record of results on behalf of the people of Pennsylvania. He was the prime Senate sponsor of landmark legislation for individuals with disabilities, the Stephen Beck Jr. Achieving a Better Life Experience Act (ABLE). The ABLE Act will allow millions of families across the United States to save for the long-term care of their loved ones with disabilities in a tax-advantaged savings account. The Associated Press hailed this legislation as “the most important new law for [those with disabilities] in 25 years.” As concerns arose across the nation about the dangers of campus sexual assault, Senator Casey took action and passed into law the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (Campus SaVE). The Campus SaVE Act requires uniform reporting standards for sexual assaults on college campuses and requires schools to provide clear guidelines to students on their sexual assault policies. The law also emphasizes steps schools can take to educate students and help prevent sexual assault.
From legislation to crack down on terrorists' financing, to a law that makes it easier for small businesses to expand, Senator Casey has passed into law a wide range of measures to keep Americans safe and economically secure. Bob Casey is a Senator for all, fighting for a fair shot for families, kids, and seniors.Contribute
