Hello from sunny Arizona!

I’ve been in the district this week, meeting with constituents, businesses, and organizations. I have enjoyed hearing your concerns and I look forward to taking the opinions of Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District constituents back to D.C.  

It is clear to me that we are all passionate about the issues facing our country.  My staff and I truly appreciate everyone who has taken the time to register comments, concerns, opinions, and suggestions on how best to move the United States forward and protect our freedoms for future generations. We look forward to keeping our lines of communication open throughout the 115th Congress.

To that end, I am hosting another telephone town hall next week to discuss President Trump’s joint address to Congress. Follow me on Facebook, and our office will give you the information to participate on the call when those details become available. I look forward to hearing feedback on the address from my constituents.

LOOKING AHEAD:

Congress will be back in session Monday night, and on Tuesday, President Trump will join us in the House chamber to deliver his joint address to Congress. Want to know why the first joint address to Congress after a U.S. President is inaugurated is not called a "State of the Union"? Read this NPR article for an interesting perspective on the history of the address.

I plan to attend the address and am eagerly anticipating what the President will present to Congress. I have been supportive of much of President Trump’s agenda and appreciate his desire to keep America safe, reset the regulatory climate, promote economic policies that will lead to more free-market jobs, restore law and order, and defend life. President Trump has already kept many of his promises to the American people, and he should be applauded for those efforts.

Now, it’s time for Congress to follow through on the promises we made – most notably to repeal Obamacare. The American people are tired of excuses and delays. It’s time to lead the country forward, and I will continue to fight for the peoples’ will throughout my term.

Next week, I will also be introducing legislation on education – stay tuned!

CO-SPONSOR OF THE WEEK:

H.R. 395 – One Subject at a Time – sponsored by Rep. Mia Love (R-UT).

Legislation should be simple to follow and provide absolute transparency for Americans looking at the bills introduced in Congress. By holding to “one subject at a time,” Congress will produce less surprises and earn trust with their constituents by preventing large Frankenstein bills from ever coming to the floor for a vote. H.R. 395 is currently awaiting consideration in the House Judiciary Committee, of which I am a member.

STAFF NEWS:

Please welcome new staff additions to the office –

  • Legislative Director: Kate LaBorde
  • Director of Scheduling and Operations: Abigail Groski
  • Veteran Outreach Representative: Kathy Pearce
