Hi Folks-

Here we are at the end of December. This was a historic month for our country. Congress finally delivered tax relief to the American people.  As always, I wanted to give you a look at what I was up to here in DC and back in our district. 

Stay tuned for a look back at the entire year in photos in the next couple of days.

Below you'll see what I was up to this month, the op-eds I've written, and news stories I was featured in. 

I visited the Toys for Tots event in Quantico. After helping out in the warehouse, I got to talk with some Marines about how Congress gave our troops the largest pay raise in years when President Trump singed the National Defense Authorization Act into law this month.

I spoke at the Navy-Marine Corps Caucus Breakfast about how I am working with my good friend, Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer (pictured above), to rebuild our nation’s Navy fleet.

I joined my colleagues in the House to write holiday cards for our troops stationed overseas this Holiday season to express our gratitude for their service to our nation and remind them we are working here in Congress to get them the resources they need to do their job. I talked with my collegue, Representative French Hill, about my work to build up our Navy's fleet by adovcating for dual procurement of Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carriers in the upcoming fiscal year.

I met with the King George Board of Supervisors to present Cedell Brooks with a Congressional Extension of Remarks in recognition for his years of service to the Board of Supervisors and talk about issues facing Congress before the end of the year. 

At Germana Community College’s Fredericksburg Center for Advanced Technology (FredCAT) I spoke with faculty about my legislation passed in this year's National Defense Authorization Act that directs resources to community and technical colleges for maritime workforce development and training programs.

I visited HCA Virginia Health System in Fredericksburg to tour their facilities and discuss my support for funding the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and how Congress is addressing issues facing hospitals across the country.

The House passed the Keep America’s Refuges Operational Act, H.R. 3979, with bipartisan support. I helped introduce this legislation with Rep. Hakeem Jeffries that reauthorizes the National Wildlife Refuge System volunteer, community partnership and education programs.
