September 22, 2017 Weekly Report

As I travel throughout the 16 counties of the Third District each month, I get the opportunity to learn firsthand about the new technologies Iowans are using to more efficiently produce biofuels and harness renewable energy to power our state and country. The renewable energy economy in Iowa has created high-paying jobs, increased exports valuable to America’s economy and ultimately helped Iowa families save more of their hard-earned money. 

During my time in Congress, I’ve been a strong advocate for our biofuels economy.

August 23, 2017 Survey

As I travel to each of the 16 counties of Iowa's Third Congressional District each and every month, I meet with Iowans to hear what is most important to them.

This week's :60 Second Survey asks you to tell me what one issue you think the United States Congress should be focusing on - if you were only able to choose just one.

August 1, 2017 Weekly Report

If you’re wired into social media, the internet, 24-hour cable news or talk radio, you would think the only things coming out of Washington, D.C. this year are President Trump; Russia; controversy; investigations; protests; anger; and gridlock.

It’s been difficult to hear or see the reality over the blaring and flashing “BREAKING NEWS” alerts which fill the airwaves continuously each broadcast hour.

The reality is the most common sounds coming from the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2017 are the words “the bill is passed”.
