Other actions highlighted include immigration reform, introducing gun violence legislation that bans bump stocks and assault weapons, working to reenter the Iran nuclear agreement and making sure the citizenship question is not on the census.

She also vowed to ensure funding for Planned Parenthood and raise the minimum wage to $15 for federal contractors.

“After four years of Donald Trump, a new president can’t wait for a bunch of congressional hearings to act,” Klobuchar said. “The urgent problems our country is facing require immediate action.”

Klobuchar’s list of policies comes days before 20 Democratic candidates will take the stage for the first presidential debates in Florida.
