March 22, 2018 Press Release
Today, Congress passed a spending bill that disregards our duty to future generations, adding billions more to the debt, failing once again to seriously tackle our nation’s deficit. I voted against this legislation because I believe both parties need to come together and find ways to limit spending on both the domestic and defense side of the ledger. Until we do this, the prosperity of our generation and future generations will be anchored to our ballooning deficit.

“Communities across the 4th Congressional District rely on water from the Colorado River. This legislation allows those communities to thrive while still protecting our endangered species. Working together, Coloradans have proven that they are the best stewards of our state’s precious natural resources.”

December 8, 2017 Press Release
I’m incredibly proud of everyone who participated in the Congressional App Challenge this year. This challenge encourages students around the country to develop a STEM skillset and in doing so, prepare for a future career that contributes in important ways to the American economy. I applaud Evan and Hunter for investing their time and effort in this creative app idea.
December 6, 2017 Press Release
Washington is broken. Donors and insiders have too much influence, and too often backroom deals trip up good legislation. Political party has nothing to do with good governance, which is why I’m proud to be joined by my friend, Rep. Kathleen Rice, and a bipartisan group of colleagues who all want a Congress that works for the people.
November 30, 2017 Press Release
When we allow companies to deduct sexual assault and sexual harassment related settlements, we’re asking the American taxpayer to subsidize hush money payments that cover-up sexual misconduct.
November 14, 2017 Press Release
“America has been watching Hollywood for decades, but not watching closely enough. Behind the red carpets and glitzy premieres is a culture of deceit and depravity. As Congress rethinks our tax code, we need to rethink the way we treat Hollywood by eliminating the business expense deduction for hush money associated with sexual assault and sexual harassment cases.”
November 3, 2017 Press Release
The dreams of this great Republic cannot be realized by the House alone. The Senate must hear the people and come together around the often bi-partisan measures we’ve been sending to them.
November 3, 2017 Press Release
I’m thankful that the Oversight and Government Reform Committee approved my legislation to prevent burrowing of political appointees. We need to prevent political appointees of either party from embedding in the bureaucracy and carrying on the agenda of their appointing President long after his or her term is completed.
