Why aren't Members in Washington?

Several items on the Congressional "to-do" list remain unfinished. Fiscal deadlines are looming. On August 1, I voted against Congress adjourning for the month of August. I believe that Congress should be in Washington to do the work of the people. Click here to watch my 45-second video.



Standing up for our Federal Workers

Many dedicated civilian workers have been subject to furloughs this summer, and quite a few of these folks have filed appeals. Recently, I urged the agency that considers these furlough appeals to proceed swiftly and equitably with the appeals of Department of Defense civilian employees. Please visit my website for more information.
