Happy Friday!

We have made it through another work week, and I’m happy to be heading home to Arizona tonight to be with my family, friends, and constituents. As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I’m continually reminded about what I am thankful for and how grateful I am to be serving Arizona’s Fifth Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Happy Veterans Day

This week, the nation observed Veterans Day. We would not still have our freedoms without the sacrifices of countless veterans who have selflessly served the United States for hundreds of years. These men and women, who walk among us, are the reasons we continue to wake up in this great nation with our liberties still intact.

We should be grateful every day for our veterans and ensure that our heroes know especially how thankful America is for their service and devotion.

Thank you, veterans. Arizona’s Fifth District owes you a debt of gratitude.

Honoring Our Veterans

As we continue to honor our veterans and thank them for their service to our nation, I could think of no better individual to join me on this week’s podcast than Bill Montgomery. Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery served our country in the U.S. Army, and he continues to faithfully serve our county and state as a stellar public servant. I hope you will enjoy our conversation about his service, the opioid crisis, and criminal justice reform. Click this link or the logo above to listen to the episode.

Taking the “Lame” Out of Lameduck

Republicans may only be in the majority in the House for a little while longer, but there’s still more we must do to complete our promises to the American people. I’m not ready to give up, and I’m going to work hard until the last day of the 115th Congress. Read my op-ed on what I believe we should be doing for the last weeks of the 115th Congress or my interview with the Daily Signal from yesterday.

Congratulations, Chairman Paul Gosar!

Congratulations to Rep. Paul Gosar on his re-election as Chairman of the Congressional Western Caucus. Under his leadership, the membership has grown significantly, and our influence has expanded throughout the House and Senate. We have effectively fought for our priorities of eliminating onerous regulations and fostering economic prosperity throughout the past two years. The Western Caucus has never been in better shape, and I am privileged to serve with Chairman Gosar.

Welcome to the U.S. Capitol

My office gives tours of the U.S. Capitol a lot, and we were pleased to welcome the Call family this week – on the first snow day for the winter, no less. I enjoy the opportunities to meet the individuals who pass through our doors and am thankful for the Arizona warmth they bring with them. If you are visiting Washington, D.C. and looking to tour the Capitol, please visit my website to request a tour.

Legislative Update

This month, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb announced his plans to strengthen the FDA’s expanded access program, including efforts to implement Right to Try legislation that was signed into law earlier this year. I am pleased to have been a leading sponsor of the Right to Try bill. Click this link to learn more about the new Right to Try webpage.
