As a working mother, Heidi knows the challenges working families face.
Through her work in the Senate, Heidi has reached across the aisle to build momentum for policies that will help North Dakota’s workers and families succeed. That’s why she supports commonsense policies like the FAMILY Act, which would benefit North Dakota families, seniors, and small businesses by providing workers with paid family leave at the cost of about a cup of coffee per week. Heidi knows that a family includes folks of all ages and that’s why she’s spent her career working for seniors and ensuring they are able to live and retire with the dignity they deserve. When North Dakota seniors were at risk of losing the pensions they worked their entire lives to earn, Heidi stepped up, fighting on their behalf to eliminate the devastating cuts. Heidi has also spent her time in the Senate making sure that Social Security and Medicare are never on the chopping block.
