District Update |July 28, 2019                                                                                 

Dear Friend,

Thank you to all of the constituents that submitted recognitions last week for Arizonans who are working hard for others in our community. I look forward to continuing to receive these recognitions, and to honor the hard work of these individuals and businesses.

This past week was a busy one in Washington, D.C. Here's a look into the work I did!

Putting a Stop to Illegal Robocalls


I am proud of my House colleagues for coming together to pass the bipartisan 'Stopping Bad Robocalls Act.' This legislation will put an end to the illegal robocalls we all are constantly receiving, and I look forward to seeing this legislation signed into law.

For more information about what the legislation will do, you can read the legislation here

Fiscal Irresponsibility 


This week, we passed a Budget Act on the House Floor. This deal would amend the remaining Budget Control Act (BCA) caps on discretionary spending to increase them by $321.5 billion for Fiscal Year 2020 and Fiscal Year 2021. 

This budget plan fails to offer a solution to offset the added costs and puts our fiscal responsibilities on the back burner for another 2 years. I joined Fox Business with Neil Cavuto to discuss my frustration with this legislation before the House voted to pass it on the Floor.

Pushing Our Pension Crisis Further


The House passed legislation to provide a government bailout for all union leaders who falsely led their employees to believe their retirement pensions were safe. These employees are fully deserving of their retirement benefits, but the legislation passed will create even more problems. 

We need to have an honest conversation about this issue to create a well-rounded and holistic solution. This bill will only help a portion of retirees, while leaving the remainder left to believe they will be helped. I urge my Democratic colleagues to come back to the drawing board to find a solution that we can have passed by both chambers, and signed into law to help fix this crisis once and for all.

 Small Business Spotlight 


We presented the Whispering Hope Ranch Foundation with a Small Business Spotlight award for the work they do for special needs children in the Arizona community. The ranch offers camps and retreats designed to foster nurturing interactions between children and animals, such as horses, residing at the Ranch. 

Thank you, Whispering Hope Ranch, for the work you do to support children with special needs. For more information about their work, be sure to check out their website
