GOP Freshmen Hone Their Message


Does the Republican Party have a messaging problem? Members of the House freshman class seem to think so. And in order to try and remedy the situation, seven of them met on Thursday morning in a Longworth House Office Building conference room, to discuss what they needed to be better at communicating to the American people. They also invited one member of the media to hear them message about messaging. It was all very "meta." Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C., organized the meeting with Reps. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Morgan Griffith of Virginia, Steve Southerland of Florida, Cory Gardner of ...


Congr. working to save Roanoke, Lynchburg mail proces.center


Sometime after May 15th the Roanoke and Lynchburg mail processing plants will close. In a release the postal service says the May 15th moratorium was to give Congress time to enact legislation. Back in November, 9th District Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-Salem) told WSLS he was co-sponsoring a bill, that would repeal the requirement forcing the Postal Service to pay health benefits up front for 75 years, and in turn save money and prevent closures. That bill is still in committee. So we went back to Griffith to ask him, did Congress not do enough? "Could we have encouraged them to take it ...

Griffith Votes to Protect Medicare
Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) today voted in support of H.R. 849, the Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act. He cosponsored this bill, which was introduced by Congressman Phil Roe (R-TN). Congressman Griffith issued the following statement: “Obamacare has many flaws, but the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) is among the worst. IPAB gives unelected bureaucrats the power to make arbitrary decisions about cutting Medicare spending. Passing this bill today is a step toward restoring accountability and should give seniors and hospitals dependent on Medicare peace of mind. “I congratulate my friend Congressman Roe for his tireless work in getting this important bill through the House and I am pleased to join him as a cosponsor.” The House of Representatives passed the Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act by a vote of 307 to 111. ###
Griffith, Goodlatte Send Letter to FERC on Colonial Pipeline
Congressmen Morgan Griffith (VA-09) and Bob Goodlatte (VA-06) today issued the following statement after sending a letter to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chairman Neil Chatterjee regarding the planned closure of Line 25 of the Colonial Pipeline: “We are deeply concerned about the economic impact this closure may have on Southwest Virginia. Without Line 25, gas prices will rise, truck traffic on our highways will increase, and jobs depending on the pipeline will be lost. We have asked FERC to work with us to see if there are federal regulatory options that might help prevent this unfortunate outcome.” ###

Lessons from the Storms The 2017 hurricane season has been the most active and destructive to the United States in a number of years. From Puerto Rico to Texas, storms have caused devastation, some of which lingers long after the hurricanes have dissipated. The challenge of rebuilding is daunting. As part of the rebuilding process, we should learn how to better prepare for similar events in the future. The House Energy and Commerce Committee, on which I serve, is committed to evaluating preparations for and responses to these storms. We hope that thoroughly understanding what worked and what didn’t in the 2017 hurricane season will help the country prepare for future natural disasters. The lessons learned from this year can have positive impacts across the country, not just in those areas vulnerable to hurricanes. On October 24, the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations held a hearing on how the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services responded to Puerto Rico. I had th

Tax Reform Update The House Ways and Means Committee recently released its bill to reform the tax code and started to mark up the bill on November 6. During the markup, the committee debates this legislation and considers amendments offered by any member of the committee. The whole House is expected to vote on the bill before Thanksgiving. The present tax code imposes too high a burden on the middle class. It also encourages businesses to send their operations to foreign countries and punishes them if they want to bring money made overseas back to the United States. I support the tax framework previously laid out by the Trump Administration and congressional leadership. That being said, I am still studying the bill text put forward by Ways and Means. As I do so, I will be guided by two principles above all: reform needs to promote job creation, and it must let families keep more of their hard-earned money.
