I spent the week in the nation’s capital, working with House Republican colleagues to get results for you and everyone in Eastern Washington. This week, the People’s House focused on legislation aimed at unlocking…
Great roundtable discussion yesterday on rural broadband. Without a doubt, the internet has been one of the greatest technological advancements in generations, and we need to make sure that everyone in our communities is connected and has access to this important infrastructure.
Our veterans deserve the highest quality care, but too often the VA misses the mark. I talked to Pete Hegseth on Fox News Radio about how the House is passing legislation to reform the VA. It’s time for a culture change at the VA, and I'm proud to lead the efforts to hold the VA accountable.
Not only has funding for the VA more than doubled since I was elected, my office has specifically asked the Spokane VA if they needed increased funding for any projects, to which they responded "no". I’m glad we are finally getting this fixed so our veterans can have the best facilities to get the care they’ve earned.
What happened this weekend in Charlottesville is heartbreaking and repulsive. As I said yesterday, white supremacy has no place anywhere in America. We must come together as fellow human beings to end bigotry and violence.
I've been told some people are trying to connect me to someone who was in Charlottesville. I don't know this person. But this is
Technology helps improve people’s lives. That's what my Steve Gleason Enduring Voices Act is all about, ensuring those with ALS and other degenerative diseases have access to life-changing speech-generating technology.

I helped facilitate a meeting with Cat and Medicare, and as a result of those meetings, Cat will be starting her treatment today at City of Hope in California. Please keep

August is #ABLEtoSave Month, and some of my proudest work in the House has been seeing my ABLE Act signed into law. Earlier this year I introduced a legislative package, called ABLE 2.0, that builds upon the success of the ABLE Act and empowers people with disabilities to work and save for their futures. Since the first ABLE program was launched in
I had the privilege of meeting with some local leaders in higher education yesterday. We had a productive, wide-ranging discussion about the Higher Education Act’s reauthorization and a number of other education-based topics. I’m grateful for their time and the good work they do!
As part of our commitment to create jobs and strengthen working families, the House passed sweeping legislation to overhaul Dodd-Frank and end taxpayer bailouts of Wall Street.
Getting rid of Dodd-Frank is just one of the ways the House has moved forward on solutions to help all Americans. Read more about the House’s work in my op-ed for The Daily
Every August, I hold a large town hall event in Spokane, and this year is no different. This Thursday, August 10, at Gonzaga University’s Globe Room at Cataldo Hall at 5:00 pm, I’ll be answering your questions so we can continue to talk about the issues important to Eastern Washington. We may not always agree on how we get there, but we all have
