Rallying With Our Coal Miners at the Capitol

On Wednesday coal miners from West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsyvlania descended upon the Capitol for a press conference to rally support for the protection of their healthcare benefits. If Congress doesn't take action, over 20,000 miners and their family members could lose their healthcare coverage at the end of next week.

 

 

We have been advocating for our miners and proposing a solution to this issue for six years. After speaking with President Trump and the leadership in both the House and the Senate, I truly believe we are getting close to permanently fixing this problem. Our miners have powered this country for decades. They are some of America's hardest workers and they deserve to keep the benefits they have already earned.

Working Together to Fight Opioid Abuse

As a member of the working group against opioid abuse, I returned to the White House to discuss drug addiction and healthcare on Tuesday. I offered several ideas to senior Administration officials that were presented to me from the round-tables and constituent meetings we held in Clarksburg and Wheeling during the April recess.

 

 

The meeting at the White House was a productive conversation about how we can work together and confront the growing opioid epidemic. It is a great honor to serve the people of West Virginia and make sure their ideas and concerns are being heard at the highest levels of the Trump administration.
