FCW : April 15, 2014
April 15, 2014 FCW.COM 21 "Chairman Rogers and I work well together because we have the same goals," she told FCW. "We both want to return to regular order and an appropriations process that keeps the government working for the American people." Now that she has gained the attention of other key players on Capitol Hill and elsewhere in Washington, the diminu- tive Mikulski offers a complex pro le. Some long-standing basics remain clear: • She continues to play to the caricature of "Barb from Baltimore." A former social worker and community activist who grew up in blue-collar east Baltimore, she returns home almost every night --- even when the Senate is in session. In a concession to her hectic pace, she often has a driver so she can review her workload and make phone calls. • She remains a liberal stalwart, who offers reliable support and rhetoric for the customary array of domestic policy causes. • She proudly holds the record as the longest-serving woman in congressional history --- now in her 38th year, including 10 in the House --- and has become a proud mentor and con- dant to many newcomers. The number of Senate women has grown from two when she took of ce to the current 20. Some of her actions don't easily t the stereotype, how- ever, especially since she took over as Appropriations chair- woman in January 2013. She and Rogers developed a close working relationship. When the House passed the recent spending bill, he praised her "open-minded approach to negotiations." "I don't know any appropriations bill that has gone through as many reasonable tests and, I think, wise deci- sion processes as went into this bill," Rogers added. Mikulski also has been reaching out to Senate Republi- cans, both on the Appropriations Committee and beyond. In March, she locked arms with Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) on behalf of a bill to update child-care services, which passed the Senate 96-2. Burr, who has worked closely with Mikulski on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Com- mittee, said their cooperation is "how the Senate should run, with mutual respect and productive conversation." After the spending bill, "passage of the child-care bill is her second home run this year," said Mikulski spokesman Vincent Morris. "There have been two big bipartisan votes "Chairman Rogers and I work well together because we have the same goals. We both want to return to regular order and an appropriations process that keeps the government working for the American people." AP IMAGES
