"This bill includes a number of provisions which will help Iowans by rebuilding our military, securing our homeland, combating the opioid crisis, and securing our schools.

March 12, 2018 Weekly Report

Since the horrific tragedy last month at a school in Parkland, Florida, and even before then, Americans are asking questions and looking for answers. For me and many others, a significant question remains: what appropriate steps should the federal government take to protect our children and employees at schools?

March 2, 2018 Weekly Report

Iowa is the best state in the country. We’ve been saying this for years. And now there is data and metrics to prove it. U.S. News and World Report released its 2018 Best States report, it shows Iowa ranked number one - something we Iowans already knew. 

Every four years the national media recognizes Iowa as the “first in the nation” for our presidential caucuses. Now, we are recognized as the best state in the country - the first in the nation.

February 16, 2018 Weekly Report

Iowa’s Third District is a dynamic and diverse district. It has the most populous county in the state – Polk County – and the least populous county in the state – Adams County. There are businesses of every kind and every size, families who have lived here for generations and new families from countries around the world. It encompasses 16 counties – the sweet sixteen as I like to call them – which stretch from Mitchellville to Hamburg. 

And I work in Congress to do my best to address many federal issues, no matter how many people it affects.

January 29, 2018 Weekly Report

An elected official’s most important duty is listening to and speaking with the folks who he or she represents. Not only do I travel to and visit every one of the 16 counties in the Third District every month, I also hold a Coffee with My Congressman public forum and have multiple open office hours sessions with my bosses – the folks of Iowa’s Third District - every year in each county throughout the district. So far this month, I've already held 14 town hall forums throughout the district - from Milo in Warren County to Riverton in Fremont County. 

January 19, 2018 Weekly Report

Too often the bureaucracy and mindset of Washington, D.C. leaves rural America behind. From unworkable and unnecessary regulations to a lack of appropriate funding for critical projects, Americans and Iowans in rural areas seem to have been forgotten by the federal government.

As I travel across the Third District meeting with Iowans, holding town halls, and listening to folks’ stories, I gather their triumphs, struggles, solutions, frustrations, and concerns to carry with me to Congress and work on real solutions to the issues Iowans are facing.
