    Posted in Press Releases on December 6, 2017 | Preview rr

    “Protecting the rights of lawful gun-owners in Michigan’s First District will always be one of my top priorities and that is why I proudly co-sponsored H.R. 38. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 passed today in the House 231-198. This common-sense legislation would create concealed firearm reciprocity throughout the country: allowing a legally qualified individual to carry a concealed firearm in other states that allow individuals to carry concealed firearms."

    Posted in Press Releases on November 29, 2017 | Preview rr

    “Changing the status quo in Washington, D.C., has been a priority of mine since taking office, and it’s a mission I intend to continue in the upcoming years. The lack of accountability and culture of misconduct in federal offices can no longer be tolerated.

    Management of the double-crested cormorant has long been a successful, comprehensive endeavor between state agencies and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). However, a recent court order has left our state and Michigan’s First District unable to respond to the negative effects these migratory birds have on our fish populations. “This issue is of the utmost importance to states like Michigan. Inaction threatens our fish populations, and in turn, the livelihood of recreational and commerci... Read more

    “Today I spoke with Governor Snyder about the recent information pertaining to the damaged protective coating on Pipeline 5 in the Straits of Mackinac. For well over a year now I have been calling for full transparency from Enbridge on the safety of this pipeline, and it is very disturbing to learn they have known about the damage to the protective coating since 2014.

    “I’m pleased that the House passed the Resilient Federal Forests Act today. For too long bureaucratic overreach has stifled proper forestry on federal lands, with devastating results to our environment. Our nation’s federal lands are home to some of our most important natural resources, and without a competent management plan in place, diseases, pests, and wildfires will continue to ravage our nation’s forests.
