Jul 4, 2014 Weekly Report

Just a quick update this week on a couple of items. First, the House passed one more funding bill this week. We’ve completed work on six out of twelve at this point. I would suggest calling your senators to ask how they’re coming along, but my guess is you already know the answer.

This was a good week for Congress. I don’t mean it was a good week for me, or for my party, or for the House, or for the specific group of senators and congressmen who happen to hold office here at this particular moment. It was a good week for the institution. It was a good week for the Legislative Branch and everything it is supposed to represent in our society.

Jun 21, 2014 Weekly Report

The House stayed busy this week and I’m happy to report, it was all pretty positive stuff.  The main order of business was consideration of the Defense Appropriations bill (one of my top priorities, obviously).  I’ve been through this a couple times now, but it is still remarkable to me (and a little scary to be honest) that we can bring up, debate, amend, and pass a bill that appropriates $491

Jun 14, 2014 Weekly Report

There is obviously a lot going on in Washington right now, but most of it we’ve talked about at length already. Briefly - the House did continue its work on passing the appropriations bills. That’s a good thing and we’ve got more coming up next week.

If you’ve read a newspaper or turned on a television at all this week, then you already know what the news is. Last Saturday, President Obama announced the he had swapped five high level Taliban operatives for our only POW in Afghanistan, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. A firestorm has ensued. So what is all of the fuss about and where do I stand on it?

May 31, 2014 Weekly Report

It’s been a short week in Washington, so just a couple items for you. The House moved another one of the twelve appropriations bills. This time, it was the Commerce, Justice, and Science bill, which funds several departments. Despite opening the bill up to unlimited amendments, we managed to move through the bill and pass it in a little over 48 hours.

Three words this week: National Defense Authorization… As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, the process of crafting and revising the annual National Defense Authorization (NDAA) is more or less a year-long process, which culminates with full House consideration (and hopefully passage) of the final bill. This was that week.
