One of the most accomplished legislators in the history of the U.S. Congress, Waxman represented California’s 33rd District for 40 years. His legislative achievements include the Ryan White Care Act on HIV, the Hatch-Waxman Act establishing generic drugs, and major improvements to the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act, among others. His oversight of the tobacco industry altered the nation’s perceptions of cigarettes forever.
