Baldwin holds the distinction of being Wisconsin’s first woman to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives and first in the U.S. Senate. She began work as a public servant in 1986 while still attending law school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Baldwin served three terms in the Wisconsin State Assembly before being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1998. In 2012, after seven terms in the House, Baldwin won election to the U.S. Senate. Her service in the 113th Congress has included membership on the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions; Senate Budget Committee; Energy and Natural Resources Committee; Special Committee on Aging, and the U.S. Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. She is active in legislative efforts to support middle class-affordable higher education and in summer 2015 introduced the America’s College Promise Act to aid students attending community colleges.
