President Trump is Committed to Keeping His Promises

In his speech to a joint session of Congress, President Trump offered a bold and optimistic agenda that will create more jobs and make America more secure. His ambitious plan to cut regulations, reform healthcare, invest in infrastructure, simplify the tax code, and rebuild our military, demonstrates that he is committed to keeping the promises he made to the American people.

 

 

Now is the time for the country to put aside our differences and unite behind the positive vision that President Trump put forth. We have many challenges ahead but I look forward to working with this Administration to improve the lives of West Virginians and middle-class families all across the country.

Investing in Infrastructure & Fighting for Jobs

In response to President Trump promising infrastructure spending in his joint address, Congressman Donald Norcross(D-NJ)and I, both co-chairs of the Building Trades Caucus, are leading a bipartisan letter to the President detailing national infrastructure priorities to rebuild our country and create jobs.

Fixing our nation’s infrastructure is an area where both parties can find common ground. By rebuilding our roads, tunnels, and bridges, we can create new, good-paying jobs and put more Americans back to work. We can also create new opportunities for workers by expanding access to broadband internet and investing in new energy infrastructure projects. Let's focus on ways to grow our economy. By prioritizing these issues, we'll do just that.  Click here to read our full letter.

Trip to India

As mentioned in last week’s newsletter, I recently joined a Congressional delegation to India. While there, we were able to meet with and speak to government officials, business leaders, healthcare providers, and local citizens. India is the world’s largest democracy and home to an ever-growing middle class. 

 

 

Considering their voracious appetite for coal, West Virginia has a chance to be an important asset for India. There is enormous potential in an alliance between India and West Virginia and I look forward to strengthening our relationship in the future.   WDTV News stopped by the office to discuss President Trump’s speech and my trip to India.

Speaking with Constituents

Speaking to and meeting with constituents is one of the most important parts of my job. With many different challenges to tackle this Congress, it’s absolutely necessary to hear the thoughts and concerns directly from the people of West Virginia.

On Wednesday night, our office hosted a tele-townhall to discuss issues related to healthcare, energy, the economy, the coal industry, and national defense. It was a very productive conversation and I look forward to advocating on behalf of my fellow Mountaineers. To read about our tele-townhall, click here

WVU Update: Go Mountaineers!

The men's basketball team enjoyed a thrilling win over Iowa State(87-76)on Friday in Morgantown for Senior Night! It was a great way for the seniors to finish off their regular season careers in front of a home crowd. Tonight, the women's team will play Oklahoma in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 Championship. Good luck, ladies!

Let’s go Mountaineers!

Have a great weekend!
