Week in Review


As Arizona begins to enter eighty degree temperatures, Washington, D.C. is also starting to see Spring warmth and cherry blossoms. 

If you and your family are in Washington, D.C. this Spring to see the cherry blossoms, be sure to contact our office about setting up a tour of the U.S. Capitol building. It is always great to have Arizonans in the office when they are in town!

Use this link to my website for scheduling a tour. 

Drought Contingency Plan Hearing


This week, I joined the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Water, Oceans, and Wildlife to discuss the Colorado River Drought Contingency Plan.

This plan is so important to Arizona and other Basin states, even in a year of high rainfall, emphasizing the need for Arizona and other users of the Colorado river to be responsible with water management, as Arizona has always been.

Ways and Means Hearing on Taxes 


Play Button

The Ways and Means Committee held a hearing on the effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. During the hearing I asked questions about how our economic growth has changed in this last year under the new tax law, compared to our last decade. 

While the data for how the tax law has benefited our country is still preliminary, it was great to hear about the positive economic growth we are starting to see and how our economy can continue to grow. 

To watch me speak, I begin at 2:19:00. 

Visiting With AIPAC


It was great to run into this Arizona AIPAC group in Washington before heading to votes. Supporting our friend Israel and the Jewish community will always be one of my priorities. Thank you for coming to discuss your priorities and how Congress can be helpful in supporting our ally Israel. 

Celebrating Women


This past Tuesday, Arizona celebrated Sandra Day O'Connor's birthday. 

Her accomplishments including being named the first woman State Majority Leader and U.S. Supreme Court Justice have paved the way to a successful future for so many women.

This Women's History Month, I wish Sandra Day O'Connor a happy birthday and thank her for all of her achievements to empower women. 

Vietnam Way Veterans Day 


On Friday, we celebrated National Vietnam War Veterans Day. The men and women who sacrificed their lives and time with family will never be forgotten. Thank you for your service to our country!
