  • Standing Up to Cuomo's New New York
    Posted in Weekly Newsletter on November 30, 2018 | Preview rr

    Dear Neighbor, The news coming out of Albany and the Governor’s office does not put New Yorkers’ interests first. We are concerned over Governor Cuomo’s decision to give Amazon $1.7 billion in subsidies, in exchange for Amazon to locate their second headquarters in New York City. This deal represents a slap in the face to the hardworking New Yorkers struggling to survive in Governor Cuomo’s oppressive business environment of high taxes and unreasonable regulations. And even Governor Cuomo unders... Read more

  • We Are Breaking The Gridlock
    Posted in Weekly Newsletter on November 16, 2018 | Preview rr

    Dear Neighbor, Americans are fed up with the partisan bickering and the desire to make it easier for bipartisan bills to pass the House is gaining momentum. However, to do so we must change the House rules for the first time in decades. And as I have said many times before, I will only support a candidate for Speaker if they agree to the rules reforms. As of now, the total number of Problem Solvers Caucus members who have pledged to withhold their vote for Speaker is 21 unless rule changes are a... Read more

  • The Importance of Hospice Care
    Posted in Weekly Newsletter on November 9, 2018 | Preview rr

    Dear Neighbor, I wanted to share with you my recent opinion piece I authored in the Buffalo News where I discuss the importance of being a hospice volunteer. Hospice care is personal to me. When my mother became sick, there was nothing I wouldn’t have done to cure her, but she taught me that what truly mattered to her was comfort and time spent with her family. Surrounded by a wonderful team of hospice care providers, we watched as her wishes were met. One of my bill's, which recently passed the... Read more

  • Bridging The Divide
    Posted in Weekly Newsletter on November 2, 2018 | Preview rr

    Dear Neighbor, The American people want Republicans and Democrats in Congress to work together to get things done in Washington and help people. We were recently rated one of the Top 25 of most bipartisan members in Congress. This year we have been working on a lot of bipartisan bills, but we would like to take a moment to highlight just a few: We worked with Rep. Engel (D-NY) to introduce the Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act: Increases training for palliative care and hosp... Read more

  • The Future of Healthcare
    Posted in Weekly Newsletter on October 26, 2018 | Preview rr

    Dear Neighbor, We care about ensuring that those in rural areas get the care they deserve. Now, with the advancement of technology, rural health centers are able to connect with specialists across the country that are able to provide patients with high quality care without travelling to a larger hospital or healthcare center. It’s called “telehealth” and it is a cost-effective and efficient way to deliver care, and we are proud supporters of this advancement in medical technology. The bipartisan... Read more

  • Fighting the Opioid Epidemic

    Dear Neighbor, We recently sat down with Countywide Alliance for Enforcement and Rehabilitation (CAER) in Mayville to discuss the opioid and heroin epidemic ravaging our neighborhood and how we are working to help. Thousands of New Yorker’s lives have been cut short by prescription drug abuse and heroin. This is why we have made combating this crisis a top priority. With my support, we recently passed more than 50 bills addressing the opioid crisis and President Trump signed those bills into law... Read more

  • Standing Up for Victims of Domestic Violence
    Posted in Weekly Newsletter on October 12, 2018 | Preview rr

    Dear Neighbor, We recently stopped by the Salvation Army Anew Center in Jamestown to discuss the reauthorization of Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). With October being the National Domestic Violence Awareness Month we recognize the importance of bringing sunshine to a topic that affects millions of Americans of any gender, age, race, religion and socio-economic background. We signed onto a letter with 46 other Republicans calling for a bipartisan reauthorization of VAWA and we are confident th... Read more

    Dear Neighbor, Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to those in the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes region for the devastating flooding that has occurred over the last few weeks. Due to the extensive damage to the regions, we called on President Trump requesting FEMA assistance. From the flooding across our communities, to the hurricane in the Carolinas and the wildfires in California, we care about those communities who are looking to rebuild. We introduced H.R. 6841, the Disaster Savings... Read more

  • Helping Our Veterans
    Posted in Weekly Newsletter on September 21, 2018 | Preview rr

    Dear Neighbor, We care about helping our veterans who fought to keep this country safe and want to ensure our vets are treated fairly. As a son of a silver star recipient, the care our vets receive is a top priority in my book. Did you know that most veterans are not eligible for dental care? Just as we care for our body and mind, it is important we care for our mouth. We have cosponsored a bipartisan bill, H.R. 4556, that requires the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to furnish dental care in the ... Read more
