News from Representative Larson

Dear Friends –

Last week Congress was back in session after our August District Work Period. It was a productive week in the House of Representatives!

Legislative and Policy Updates:

  • The House Judiciary Committee passed three bills that will now go to the House floor for a vote to address the epidemic of gun violence in our country.
  • I condemned the Trump Administration’s decision to divert money from 127 military projects to fund an unnecessary border wall. This decision is reckless and irresponsible. It puts our national security and our men and women in uniform at risk. Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle have warned that a border wall would be a waste of taxpayer dollars. I will join my colleagues in Congress to fight this unwise policy.
  • I voted to protect our coasts, by banning drilling off the Atlantic and Pacific shores. Offshore drilling threatens our pristine coastlines and the economy of coastal communities. The bill passed the House last week. I also voted to repeal part of the GOP tax law that requires drilling off the coast of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Local Updates:

PSA:

  • In the wake of disasters like Hurricane Dorian, scammers often take advantage of people wishing to help survivors. To avoid scams, the IRS has a Tax Exempt Organization Search feature to help taxpayers donate to legitimate charities. Visit www.irs.gov/teos for more information.

ICYMI:

  • I joined Al Terzi on The Real Story, watch my interview here!
