He is the top Democratic member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the most senior member of the Appropriations Committee, which funds justice programs.

Vermont will recieve more than $8.7 million from the U.S. Department for Justice to support victims of crime and enhance programs that serve survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
