Congressman Pete King

Representing the 2nd District of New York

Issues

Autism

I am a member of the bipartisan Autism Caucus, which works to enact federal legislation and ensure adequate support for federal programs that support and benefit individuals and families affected by autism.

Budget and Federal Spending

We are facing a debt crisis of unprecedented magnitude. If we do not act soon, we will be the first generation to leave our children with a lower standard of living. I will not stand by and let that happen.

Cancer Research

In my years representing Long Islanders, I have been a steadfast advocate for increased federal funding for cancer research programs.

Crime Control & Law Enforcement

Throughout my time in Congress, I have had a long-standing record of supporting police and law enforcement.

Education

The rising cost of college has made post-secondary education prohibitive for many individuals and families. I strongly support easing the burden of student loans for students.

Firefighters and First Responders

As Co-Chair of the Congressional Fire Services Caucus, I have been a leading advocate of funding the needs of our fire service professionals.

Hurricane Sandy & Disaster Relief

Superstorm Sandy was the second largest natural disaster in our nation’s history and the most devastating and costly to affect New York and Long Island.

Veterans and Military Personnel

Our country can never repay the debt we owe our nation’s veterans and current active duty military personnel. These are the Americans who answered the call to duty and put their lives on the line to preserve our nation’s freedoms.
