McHenry Crowdfunding, Angel Investing Bills Pass House
This evening, Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (R, NC-10), Vice Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee and co-leader of House Republican's Innovation Initiative, had two bills addressing capital formation for small businesses pass the House with wide, bipartisan support.  H.R. 4854, the Supporting America's Innovators Act passed the House by a vote of 388 - 9, while H.R. 4855 the Fix Crowdfunding Act passed the House by a vote of 394 - 4.

McHenry Hosts Opioid Crisis Workshop for Local Law Enforcement Agencies
On Friday, Congressman Patrick McHenry (R, NC-10) hosted a workshop for local Tenth District law enforcement agencies focusing on the heroin epidemic that has struck communities in western North Carolina and across the nation. The workshop--which was attended by 20 Tenth District law enforcement agencies--was led by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and focused on law enforcement strategies to help combat this epidemic. "The heroin and opioid epidemic has destroyed lives, families, and it threatens our western North Carolina communities," said Congressman McHenry. "This epidemic must be confronted from every angle: awareness of the dangers posed by opioids, preventing access to them, and rehabilitating those suffering from addiction." "Ultimately our law enforcement agencies are the first line of defense in the fight against this epidemic," Congressman McHenry continued. "The workshop provided these agencies with the information and resources they need to lead this importan











McHenry Eugenics Compensation Legislation Passes House
Last night, the House passed Congressman Patrick McHenry's (R, NC-10) eugenics compensation legislation, H.R. 2949 the Treatment of Certain Payments in Eugenics Compensation Act, as part of a larger bill, H.R. 5210, the Patient Access to Durable Medical Equipment (PADME) Act. H.R. 5210 passed the House by a voice vote.  “North Carolina’s eugenics program is a sad part of the history of our great state,” said Congressman McHenry. “While we can never fully compensate the victims for the pain they suffered at the hands of the state, this bipartisan bill will at least ensure they are not further penalized for accepting compensation payments they deserve.” H.R. 2949 was included with H.R. 5210 when it passed the House. H.R. 5210 was introduced by Congressman Tom Price (R, GA-06). You can learn more about that bill here.   BACKGROUND ON H.R. 2949: During the early decades of the 20th century, over 30 states implemented eugenics or compulsory sterilization

This legislation makes significant reforms to our nation’s mental health system including increasing the number of psychiatric hospital beds available to treat patients, increasing mental healthcare in small and rural communities, and utilizing innovation to improve the care provided to patients.”
