On this Fourth of July, we celebrate America’s 239th birthday. As we look back on the history of our nation, we remember that America was founded as a beacon of hope and freedom for the oppressed. Our nation was built on the principals of liberty, self-reliance, and the ability to pursue happiness. That is a cause I continue fighting for today – keeping America free and keeping government overreach at bay. And on this Fourth of July, take a moment to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice to keep us free.

Thursday, July 2: Bishop Statement on Agreement of Catastrophic Wildfire Legislation

I spoke with Jay Plyburn at 5 News in Northwest Arkansas this week. The interview touched on the Resilient Federal Forests Act and the work I've been doing since being elected to Congress. The interview will air Sunday morning, July 5. It will also appear on my website, Facebook and Twitter.

I met with the Board of Directors at Arkansas Valley Electric Cooperatives in Ozark on Thursday. We discussed regulatory issues and how what happens in Washington has a direct impact on consumers back home in Arkansas.

My office is located on the second floor of the headquarters in suite 200. My other offices in Arkansas are located at 101 North Washington Avenue, Suite 406 in El Dorado, 211 West Commercial Street in Ozark, and 100 East 8th Avenue, Room 2521 in Pine Bluff.

During my visit to Northwest Arkansas on Thursday (July 2), I was able to visit Mulberry Mayor Gary Baxter (right) and Raymond Chung (middle) of American Vegetable Soybean and Edamame. The Mulberry-based company is doing good work and growing its economic footprint in Western Arkansas, providing good-paying jobs to Fourth District residents.
