Time Flies - 

It's hard to believe that we're almost to the end of August, and the House is about to resume its calendar in Washington, D.C. I've enjoyed my time in the district, meeting with many constituents and businesses in our communities. Arizona's Fifth District is a special place, and I am so fortunate to represent this district in Congress.

Give Them Hope

Today on the podcast, I interviewed Laura McLinn, mother of Jordan McLinn - one of the faces and heroes of the Right to Try cause. Over the past couple of years, I had the opportunity to get to know Laura and Jordan as they both frequented our Nation's Capital to advocate for this vital legislation. It was an honor to work with them and to talk to Laura again about her journey through this process. I hope you will listen and be inspired. Click this link or the logo above to listen.

Special thanks again to all of the champions of Right to Try - the patients and their families. I was privileged to work alongside of Senator Ron Johnson and Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick to GIVE THEM HOPE.

Support Our Border Patrol Agents

Yesterday, the National Border Patrol Council released a letter of support for my bill, the Fund and Complete the Border Wall Act. One of the key components of the legislation is to open up additional funding for our Border Patrol agents, giving them the necessary resources they need to do their jobs in the field. Read my press release, which includes the letter.

Fridays Stand for Freedom

The Contact Lens Rule is cumbersome to prescribers and patients. Patients should have access to their prescriptions, but this level of mandated bureaucracy is unnecessary and limits patients’ personal freedom and responsibility for their own healthcare.

August Recess

This week, I participated in a fascinating space conference, hosted by Arizona State University. Thank you to ASU and Michael Crow for the hospitality. I was privileged to moderate a panel discussion with my colleagues about NASA University-Led Missions. We had a good conversation about what we can do to ensure that our Arizona universities are able to continue to compete for NASA missions. These schools, and others throughout the country, have historically been very successful at bringing missions to fruition on time and under budget.
