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 ...

Congressman Griffith's Weekly E-Newsletter 5.1.17
Coal They said it wasn’t a war on coal, and They said it wasn’t the anti-coal policies.   They said it’s just the market.  Natural gas prices are just too cheap. But, with a new President and a new attitude towards the coal industry, coal is starting to see signs of revival. Norfolk Southern reported that coal earnings increased 20% in the first quarter of this year, driven by significant volume increases in the export and utility markets. The U.S. Energy Information Administration tracks the Henry Hub natural gas spot price (dollars per million btu), which varies greatly.  But for comparison, in the first three months of 2015, the year Southwest Virginia saw so many layoffs, the average monthly cost was 2.99 in January, 2.87 in February, and 2.83 in March.  In 2017, the same three months were 3.30, 2.85, and 2.88. It does not appear there is a significant pricing trend of rising costs in the natural gas industry.  Yet Norfolk Souther
Griffith Introduces Acre In, Acre Out
Currently, the federal government owns an estimated 28.2% of all the land in the nation.  Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) introduced H.R. 2167 which keeps the federal government from expanding its percentage of land ownership in the United States.  It applies to certain Federal land under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, or the Forest Service.  The bill simply requires the federal government to sell an acre of land for every new acre they desire to acquire. Congressman Griffith said, “Currently, the federal government owns an estimated 28.2% of all the land in the nation.  Our Founding Fathers never intended for the federal government to own nearly one-third of the country’s land.  If the federal government needs to acquire additional land, they should identify pieces of land that can be sold to private owners, states, or localities.  Doing this assures that t
Griffith Statement On House Passage of American Health Care Act
Today, the House of Representatives voted on H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act of 2017, to repeal and replace Obamacare. It passed by a vote of 217-213. Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) said, “I voted in support of the repeal and replacement of the failed health insurance program known as Obamacare. The new bill guarantees everyone has access to health insurance.  The bill sets up a system with choices instead of mandates, and will lower costs over time, making care for all more affordable. A piece of paper saying you have health insurance does not mean you can always afford healthcare.” “Americans overwhelming voted to undo the burdens of Obamacare, and this bill delivers.  Furthermore, it will not allow insurers to deny those who do not have access to health insurance through their employer, on the basis of pre-existing conditions.” “This bill is our best chance to offer more choices, eliminate taxes, lower skyrocketing premiums, and bring down deductib
