This week began the traditional August recess for the U.S. House of Representatives. Even though it is called a recess, the month of August is no break for Members of Congress.

Since the House went into recess, I have been busy back here in the district touring factories, rehabilitation centers, and retail stores connecting with constituents and finding out their concerns. It is during these tours that I find out the struggles small business owners are facing as a result of an out of control executive branch bent on destroying innovation and entrepreneurship.

My first Coffee with the Congressman in Malvern was a success. These events give me an opportunity to meet with you to hear concerns and questions. I am also able to share with you the problems I have found in Washington.

During this first week in August, I traveled to many communities across the Fourth District. Here I am in Hot Springs, suited up and ready to meet with employees and customers.

I spent part of Thursday at Mountain Valley Spring Water. It was here I saw how great-tasting Arkansas water is bottled and shipped out to the rest of America.
