Congressman McHenry Weekly Update

We Need Targeted COVID Relief


Last week, the House Financial Services Committee held a markup of a portion of President Biden’s $1.9 trillion so-called stimulus package. We know there are sectors of our workforce still hurting—and Republicans want to provide support where it is needed—but this package goes far beyond that scope. We need to deliver temporary, targeted, and COVID-related relief to the people who need it most. Unfortunately, this package pushes partisan programs and ideas that are at the very least, unnecessary, and at the worst, harmful to the American people and the coronavirus recovery effort. Click here or on the image below to watch my opening remarks from this week's markup.


Important Information for Taxpayers


In advance of tax filing season, my staff and I wanted to share important information from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regarding filing federal taxes and what to do if you did not receive your full Economic Impact Payment. The IRS is urging taxpayers to file their 2020 federal returns electronically because of COVID related delays expected for paper returns. Please read this important information by clicking here or on the image below.


Black History Month


This month is dedicated to honoring the history and culture of African Americans and the many contributions they have made to our country. From business, political, and military leaders to important educators and inventors, African Americans have made many meaningful contributions to the country and to North Carolina.  As we celebrate Black History Month, check out the National Museum of African American History & Culture’s website which you can access by clicking here.

Rockingham Now


This is a great story about Reidsville native Colonel Glenn McNeill, Commander of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol who has dedicated his life to serving his country and the people of North Carolina. I am grateful for the service of our law enforcement officers like Colonel McNeill and everything they do to help keep our communities and loved ones safe.
