One of the most outspoken progressive members of the state assembly, he focused on difficult issues including corrections reform, the state budget, education funding, and fighting privatization schemes.
Since 2013, he has represented the same community in Washington. Rep. Pocan is a member of the Appropriations Committee, where he sits on subcommittees which deal with health, education, labor, agriculture, rural development, and environmental policies. Rep.
