Taylor County Law Enforcement Meeting on Opioid Epidemic

On Thursday, I met with Taylor County prosecutors and the Chief of Police to discuss strategies for combatting the horrendous opioid epidemic that is gripping our communities. West Virignia has been ground zero in the outbreak of this public health crisis, and it is critical that lawmakers and law enforcement work together to form effective policies and strategies to ensure our neighbors who are struggling with this problem get the help they need.

Northern Panhandle HOME Consortium Celebrates 20th Anniversary 

On Tuesday, I attended the Northern Panhandle HOME Consortium's 20th anniversary. The Consortium was founded to access federal funds to help low income first time home buyers with down payment assistance. This work is crucial to help get these families out of government run housing. Over their 20 years of operation, the Consortium has helped secure almost $8 million in funding for down payment assistance and a further $45 million in home mortgages. They've done all this with less than 25 defaults over their 20 years of work.

McKinley Speaks at Wheeling Rotary Club

On Tuesday, I attended my hometown Rotary Club in Wheeling. I gave an update on the current status of the House of Representative's work in Washington. We discussed the Department of Energy's proposed rule on ensuring sustainability and reliability in our nation's electric grid, and how coal has a major role to play in that effort. This proposed rule will help prevent further coal-fired power plant closures and ensure jobs for the region.

Walking Tour in Grafton

On Thursday, I went on a walking tour of Grafton's Main Street to talk with small business owners about the issues they're facing. Small businesses are the backbone of our local economies and create good-paying jobs for our community.  I will always fight to ensure our small business owners have a regulatory environment that enables them to flourish and expand.
