I Am Honored to Serve As the Republican Leader of the
House Financial Services Committee


It is an honor to have been re-elected as the Republican Leader of the House Financial Services Committee. I look forward to continuing to work towards providing solutions, opportunity, and support to the American people. Click here or on the image below for my full statement.


We Need to Support American Families and Workers


Last week, House Democrats demonstrated once again that their priorities are fundamentally out-of-step with the American people. Instead of voting on additional coronavirus relief, they voted on legislation to legalize marijuana and a Tiger King bill. While House Democrats’ priorities might be cats and cannabis over coronavirus relief, American families and small businesses deserve better. Democrats have now blocked additional coronavirus relief for small businesses and workers more than 40 times. Now is the time to come together for the American people, not play politics.

   

This Week in the House Financial Services Committee


This week the House Financial Services Committee held a hearing with Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. This is the third quarterly hearing on the implementation of the CARES Act and the federal government’s response to the economic crisis caused by COVID-19. In my opening statement I highlighted the work done to confront the economic impact of the coronavirus and how we must continue our efforts to get the American people back to work.

NC Senate Republicans elect first female majority leader

The News & Observer


Congratulations to my longtime friend Kathy Harrington on this tremendous honor. Kathy is a proven operator within the Republican Caucus who commands the attention of her colleagues when she speaks. Kathy's election as Majority Leader marks a historic choice for NC Senate Republicans and one I know they will not regret.


Blue Ridge National Heritage Area

National Park Service


Here in western North Carolina we know first-hand the importance of our country’s National Heritage Areas. The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area was created to protect and preserve the Appalachians' unique traditions and rich history. Additionally, this region plays an important role in our local economy, supporting thousands of jobs. House passage of the National Heritage Area Act will help ensure we preserve these areas and the crucial role they play in our communities for years to come. You can learn more about the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area and its impact on our community at the link above.
