He prioritizes criminal justice reform, environmental health, and progressive tax reform. Sen. Nguyen is the vice-chair of the Senate Human Services, Reentry & Rehabilitation Committee and a member of the Transportation Committee, the Rules Committee, and the Environment, Energy & Technology Committee.
