Today in Baltimore, Senator Barbara Mikulski announced that she would not seek a 6th term as a United States senator for Maryland.
The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative sincerely thanks Senator Mikulski for being a tireless advocate for children and leading voice in the senate for the eradication of childhood lead poisoning. She championed of the Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration Grant Program, funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and played a vital role in helping reduce childhood lead poisoning in Maryland by 98%.
The Senator is the longest-serving woman in the history of Congress. We are proud to call her a friend and neighbor. We look forward to her continued work on behalf of children, Marylanders and families across the nation. There is no better example of a caring, constructive leader than “Senator Barb.”
