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 Statement on the 15th Anniversary of 9/11
Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement today marking the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorists attacks. “Fifteen years ago today, our nation was attacked by terrorists.  Like many of you, I distinctly remember where I was when the first plane hit.  On what started out as a typical Tuesday morning, I was in my office.  My assistant, Terry Haynie, called me into her office shortly before 9 a.m. because she had just seen the news coverage of the first plane hitting the North Tower in New York City.  We could not understand how a plane could have gotten so off course that it could hit a building.  Then we watched live as the second plane crashed into the South Tower, and we knew the United States was under attack.” “Later that day, I went out and bought an American flag to fly at my office, because I wanted to display my confidence that we, as Americans, will never be defeated.” “Today, as we pause to remember the innocent
Lawmakers Seek Open, Public Meetings on MVP
Today, Representatives Bob Goodlatte (VA-06), Morgan Griffith (VA-09), and Robert Hurt (VA-05) sent a letter to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) requesting that they not only hold one-on-one meetings, but public hearing type meetings with constituents in Virginia pertaining to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP). Below is the text of the letter. Please click here for the signed copy. Dear Chairman Bay: We write to you on behalf of constituents who are interested in the upcoming public comment meetings that will be held in conjunction with completion of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP). Our constituents have indicated to us that they are concerned that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) meetings may not follow a true open to the public format. Rather, they have indicated that the MVP meetings may instead be comprised of opportunities for comment only
Congressman Griffith's Weekly E-Newsletter 9.9.16
US, Superpower or Fictitious Kingdom? On May 2, I wrote of an evolving situation in the South China Sea, where China was pursuing its objectives by building an airstrip on the Fiery Cross Reef.  This reef is part of the Spratly Island chain claimed by China, Vietnam, and the Philippines. Believing it has a historic right to dominate this region, China’s long-term strategy is to turn the South China Sea into the equivalency of a Chinese lake.  Allowing China to dominate this area would severely damage the ability of countries in Asia from shipping or receiving goods to/from other nations.  This situation has continued developing since May. In July, as summarized in the Wall Street Journal, the international Hague Tribunal ruled “…that China’s claims to historic and economic rights in most of the South China Sea have no legal basis” and that China “…couldn’t claim historic rights in all the waters within a “nine-dash” line used by Beijing
Griffith and Welch Introduce the Improving Transparency and Accuracy in Medicare Part D Spending Act
Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA), along with Congressman Peter Welch (D-VT) and seven other Members of Congress, introduced the Improving Transparency and Accuracy in Medicare Part D Spending Act (H.R. 5951) today, which would ensure our community pharmacists receive reimbursement at the rate posted at the time the prescription is filled. Congressman Griffith said, “This bill would make it so pharmacists know exactly what they're getting paid when you get your prescriptions filled.  Unfortunately, pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), which operate within insurance companies etc., have gotten into the habit of changing rates paid to your pharmacist for your prescriptions weeks and months after the prescriptions have been filled.” “Some drugs are like a commodity whose prices change. But when the price of gasoline fluctuates with the market, your local gas station isn't allowed to send you a bill after the fact.  They can’t say the price was $2.09 when you filled up
