Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Deborah Ross (NC-02) released a report detailing accomplishments from her first year working for the people of the 2nd Congressional District of North Carolina. The full report can be found here.

“2021 was a difficult year, beginning with a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol and the COVID-19 pandemic that continues to pose serious health and economic challenges,” said Congresswoman Ross. “I’m immensely grateful for everyone in Wake County who stepped up in extraordinary ways to support our people amid these trying times.  Over the past year, I’ve traveled around Wake County, hosted events, met with members of our community, and taken to heart my constituents’ views, insights, and concerns.

“I’m incredibly proud of what my office and I have accomplished for the people of Wake County. We helped constituents access the resources they were owed by the federal government, delivering millions of dollars back to seniors, veterans, and more. I introduced commonsense, bipartisan measures to support all North Carolinians. We passed historic legislation that delivered the investments our community urgently needs – from the American Rescue Plan to the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

“There is still so much work to do in 2022, including passing the Build Back Better Act and protecting the sacred right to vote. It’s one of the greatest honors of my life serving Wake County in Congress, and I look forward to continue fighting for the Second District in the year ahead.”

The report includes the following highlights:

  • 2 bills signed into law:
    • Legislation consolidating Fort Bragg into one federal judicial district – the Eastern District of North Carolina.
    • As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, legislation directing the Secretaries of Energy and Transportation to establish a working group to make recommendations on the development and integration of electric vehicles into the transportation and energy systems of the United States.
  • 40 bills, amendments, and resolutions introduced – including measures to fight climate change, protect our democracy, and support women.
  • 70+ events attended in Wake County
  • 760+ constituent cases closed
  • 70,000+ written responses to constituents
