Offering a Better Way

Election season is over and the House returned this week ready to work. We passed several important measures that will strengthen America abroad and make our government more transparent here at home.

On Tuesday, the House passed the Iran Sanctions Act. This legislation extends sanctions on Iran’s weapons programs that were not lifted under the nuclear agreement and provide clear authority to “snap-back” many of the most powerful sanctions on Iran’s energy industry if the regime rushes toward a nuclear weapon. We must continue to stand together and keep the world's #1 state sponsor of terrorism accountable for its actions. To learn more about our efforts, click here.  

 

 

The House also passed the Midnight Rules Relief Act, legislation that will allow Congress to disapprove of politically motivated rules by an outgoing Administration. With last week’s historic election, the American people made clear that they reject a government that declares new rules through unilateral executive action and bureaucratic overreach. Our constituents deserve a transparent government, and the legislation we passed is a common sense reform bill that protects our constituents from burdensome rules that only empower Washington. Going forward, we will continue to work hard and offer the American people a better way forward. 

Meeting with Vice President-Elect Pence

On Thursday, House Republicans held a meeting with Vice President-elect Mike Pence. We had a very upbeat discussion about our goals for the coming year. The American people have spoken and they want a government that is accountable, and works to grow our economy and keep us safe.

 

 

We understand the responsibility we have been given and look forward to putting forward an agenda that will create jobs, make health care more affordable, promote a national energy plan, strengthen national security, and allow more people a chance to build a bright future.

WVU Update: Go Mountaineers!

The WVU women’s soccer team continues to dominate and is currently ranked #1 in the nation. They were scheduled to play last night in the second round of the NCAA Tournament! 

Last week the football team defeated the Texas Longhorns 24-20 on the road! Tonight they will square off against the Oklahoma Sooners at home in the biggest game of the year. A win could put them back into the top 10! Let’s go Mountaineers!

The school’s marching band is also scheduled to participate in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. They are expected to be shown on TV around 9:50 AM. Be sure to tune in!
