Kennedy is well placed to continue his fight for the environment — especially the oceans and coastlines that are such an important part of his state. Active in both the Coastal and Ocean Caucuses, Rep. Kennedy is a cosponsor of:

  • H.R. 3650 (Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Research and Control Amendments Act of 2009)

  • H.R. 1310 (Clean Water Protection Act)
