 width=U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow is the senior senator from Michigan and a prominent national leader recognized for her ability to build coalitions and get things done for Michigan and the nation.

Stabenow is a longtime champion of policies that will help Michigan win the global clean energy race, get more Michigan-made EVs on the roads, and bring jobs home. Her Buy America initiatives have been signed into law. She also secured $2 billion to produce manufacturing-grade semiconductors in the U.S.

Stabenow is a national leader in the effort to make sure all people have affordable, quality health care, including prescription drugs and behavioral health care. She is the creator of a new and more effective system that funds community behavioral health services in the same way as funding physical health services. The author of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, Stabenow led the successful bipartisan effort to authorize and fund a new Soo Lock.

Stabenow is Chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee, a senior member of the Finance Committee and the Budget Committee, and a member of the Environment and Public Works Committee.
