CONGRESSIONAL APP CHALLENGE

The Congressional App Challenge is a public effort to encourage kids to learn how to code, through annual district-wide competitions hosted by Members of Congress for their district. Middle and high school students from the Third District are invited to participate. Students code original applications for the chance to be selected for recognition by their Member of Congress, win prizes, and have their work put on display in the Capitol Building in Washington, DC.

 

 Deadline for submission of apps is Monday, October 15, at 5:00PM CT.

If you would like more information on the annual Congressional App Challenge please visit the official website or contact my Fort Smith office at (479) 424-1146.

WEEK IN REVIEW

To start off this week's From the Front... I would like to thank all of the Arkansans who stopped by my Washington office during their visits to our nation’s capital, including the Fleming family from Russellville, the Criner family from Siloam Springs, the Campbell family from Harrison, the Gamble family from Greenwood, the Suskie family from Little Rock, the Gilmer family from Fayetteville, the Boswell family from Harrison, the Freeman family from Bonanza, the McCallister family from Alma, the Arnold family from Rudy, Dylan Wistrom of Bentonville, Terrel Gordon of Bentonville, the Beck family from Prairie Grove, the Klaus family from Fayetteville, the Fleshman family from Rogers, the Marshall family from Fayetteville, and the Campion family from Rogers. Safe travels back to the Natural State.

On Tuesday, I was appointed by Speaker Paul Ryan to serve on the conference committee tasked with reconciling differences between the House- and Senate-passed versions of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 (NDAA). The NDAA is legislation that must be passed by Congress and signed into law each year to authorize funding for our nation’s military. The House passed its version of the fiscal year 2019 NDAA on May 24, 2018, while the Senate passed a different version of the legislation on June 18, 2018. The conference committee is charged with resolving the differences between Senate and House versions of the bill for approval by both chambers before the legislation is sent to the desk of the President. I am honored to be tapped for this important effort on behalf of our brave defenders around the world. With ever present threats to our national security at home and abroad, it is critical that we always make the best resources, training, and support available to our men and women in uniform. As we move into these negotiations to strengthen and invest in our military, I am confident that we can ensure those who willingly to go into harm’s way are ready to face each mission and defeat every enemy to protect America’s freedom.

On Wednesday, the country celebrated America’s 242nd anniversary of independence! On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress met in Philadelphia and formally adopted the Declaration of Independence. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades, and concerts to family gatherings and barbecues. I thank all the men and women who fought to preserve this freedom and remember all those who have fought and made the ultimate sacrifice. I hope you and your family had a happy Fourth of July!
