Update on the Flood Recovery Effort

The people of West Virginia are continuing to recover from the severe weather and devastating floods from last week. My office has continually been in touch with local officials, members of the West Virginia delegation, and federal officials to monitor the response. Federal disaster assistance has been made available to people in Greenbrier, Nicholas, Kanawha, Fayette, Clay, Roane, Summers, Webster, Pocahontas, and Monroe counties.

 

 

If you or someone you know would like to learn more about direct assistance please visit  www.disasterassistance.gov or call 1-800-621-3362 or 1-800-462-7585. 

Our first responders have been heroic but our fellow Mountaineers still need our help. If you would like to donate or volunteer to the ongoing recovery effort, please visit this site for more information - https://wvvoad.communityos.org/cms Thank you. 

Celebrating Success: Hino Motors Produces its 50,000th Truck!

On Tuesday, it was a privilege to visit the Hino Motors plant in Williamstown again. The company celebrated the production of its 50,000th truck. Hino’s success and hard work is emblematic of the diversification we need in our state economy and it was an honor to join both the employees and the company’s leadership for this ceremony.

Meeting with Marion County Commissioners

On Wednesday we traveled to Fairmont for a roundtable with the Marion County Commissioners. We had a very important discussion on a wide range of issues such as opioid abuse and drug addiction, the coal industry, and how to strengthen the local economy by attracting investment for research and development.  It’s always great to meet with local officials, hear their concerns, and exchange ideas on how we can find solutions to the problems we face. It was a very productive meeting and I’m looking forward to the next visit to Marion County.  If you would like to read the Times West Virginian story on this meeting, click here. For a story from WDTV, click here

 

 

Independence Day!

Monday is July, 4th, our Independence Day and America’s 240th birthday! Many of us will be walking in parades, attending barbecues, and watching fireworks. But let’s also make sure we take a moment out of our day and remember all the brave men and women who fought for our freedom and sacrificed to make the United States the greatest country on earth. 

 

 

Looking ahead!

Next week I will be back in Washington for another busy session in the House. We will be voting on important counterterrorism legislation that will bolster security to our homeland as well as a bill to strengthen mental health. The Energy and Commerce Committee will also be holding several important hearings.

Have a great weekend! Enjoy the fireworks!
