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 2.6.17
Protecting the Second Amendment On Thursday, I voted to overturn one of the Obama Administration’s final actions targeting the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. The rule in question, issued by the Social Security Administration (SSA), prohibited the purchase of firearms by anyone who has a determination of a disability listing as one of his primary conditions a mental health disorder and while having another person handle his Social Security financial affairs. This bureaucratic edict was far too broad and denied those affected appropriate due process in taking away their constitutionally-guaranteed rights. The rule was presented as keeping guns out of the hands of those mentally unfit to handle them. For example, CNN tweeted that the regulation barred gun sales “to people with severe mental illnesses.” The trouble is that the rule itself makes no reference to severe mental illnesses; instead, if you have certain mental health disorders and you designate another
Griffith Applauds House Passage of Resolution Disapproving the OSM Stream Rule
Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) today voted to disapprove the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM)’s stream rule, referred to as the “Stream Protection Rule (SPR).” The resolution of disapproval, put forward under the terms of the Congressional Review Act (CRA), passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 228 to 194. After the House vote, he issued the following statement:   “When the unnecessary, costly, and job-killing ‘Stream Protection Rule’ was issued in December, I vowed to fight it with every tool available. I am pleased that a majority of my colleagues in the House joined the fight by supporting this resolution of disapproval.” “When the Senate approves the resolution and the President signs it, the Office of Surface Mining will be unable to put forward this rule or one similar to it in the future. This outcome would put bureaucrats on notice that they cannot impose ineffective, costly, overreaching regulations without engagi
Griffith Urges White House to Expand Broadband in Rural Areas
Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) sent a letter along with 70 of his colleagues to President Donald J. Trump urging him to include expansion of broadband in rural areas as a part of any infrastructure investments. Griffith made the following statement: “Internet access is critical to economic success in the 21st century. Unfortunately, families and businesses in too many rural areas of the country, including many parts of the Ninth District, lack fast and reliable service. This can hold back business and job creation. Improving broadband connectivity is a piece of the puzzle for economic development in Southwest Virginia. I urge the new Administration to prioritize broadband for rural areas as it delivers on its promise of a strong economy for all Americans.” You can read the full text of the letter to President Trump here. ###
Griffith, Blumenauer Reintroduce Compassionate Access Act to Reschedule Marijuana and CBD
Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) and Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) today announced that they have reintroduced the Compassionate Access Act to reschedule marijuana and cannabidiol (CBD). The Compassionate Access Act would allow the states to provide appropriate access to patients needing these legitimate medical treatments under the supervision of their physicians. The Compassionate Access Act sets up a process to reschedule marijuana from its current position as a Schedule 1 drug under the Controlled Substances Act, which asserts the drug has no medical use and limits the ability of researchers to study the drug’s safety and effectiveness as a treatment. The bill provides protections and access to patients, parents of minor children, other caretakers, pharmacies, producers, and testing labs in states where medical marijuana is legal when the treatment is prescribed by a physician. The legislation also exempts CBD from the federal definition of marijuana in recognition of CBD
