Raychel Proudie strives to introduce legislation that helps people navigate easier in life. For instance, she wants to create a way for people who owe child support to keep their driver’s licenses. Proudie stated “It doesn’t make much sense to make it more difficult for someone to earn money that could eventually provide financial support for children. “It seems counterintuitive to take driver’s licenses or professional licenses from individuals who are behind on child support and strips their means of making money to pay child support.”
