Traveling the District and Meeting with Constituents

We had a very busy week traveling the district and meeting with constituents. We attended a ribbon cutting at Ohio Valley University for their new water purification system, held a roundtable on drug addiction, spoke to the Clarksburg Rotary, and met with local officials in Bridgeport, just to highlight a few of our stops. To read about our roundtable on opioid abuse, click here.

 

 

On Wednesday, we bumped into Senator Shelley Moore Capito! It's always great to see the Senator in my hometown of Wheeling.

 

 

Update on Miners Health Benefits

By the end of this month, over 20,000 miners could lose their health benefits if action is not taken by Congress. Our miners are some of America's hardest workers. They have powered this country for decades and they don't deserve to lose the benefits they've already earned. I have authored legislation that will bring a permanent fix to this situation and I will continue to fight hard on this issue so that our miners and their families have the peace of mind they deserve and know that their benefits will no longer be threatened.

 

Reforming Health Care

It is very clear that health care costs have been hurting working families in West Virginia and all around the country. Premiums have soared, deductibles have skyrocketed, and choices are limited. Over the next few weeks, Congress will continue to work on and debate the best way forward when it comes to reforming health care. The current system is failing. The American people deserve access to affordable, quality healthcare coverage.

 

 

 

WVU Update: Go Mountaineers!

The men's baseball team continues to impress. Last night they defeated Kansas St. 9-7. They have won three in a row and ten of their last thirteen. They play Kansas St. again this afternoon in the second game of a three game series.

Let’s go Mountaineers!

Have a great weekend!
