2014/09/18

Washington – This week, U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) was named a Guardian of Small Business by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) for her outstanding voting record in the 113th Congress in support of America’s small business owners: “Between 1993 and 2013, small businesses accounted for 63 percent of new jobs created in the U.S.,” Miller stated. “Their contribution to our economic vitality and ingenuity is indisputable, and Congress must work to prevent overreaching regulatory burdens that stifle their ability to operate and grow.  I appreciate this recognition and pledge to continue to work with my colleagues to support America’s small businesses.”  NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner praised Rep. Miller for supporting small business. “The record shows that Rep. Miller is a true champion of small business, supporting the votes that matter in the 113th Congress,” said Danner. “This award reflects our members’ appreciation for supporting the NFIB pro-growth agenda for small business.”   ### Read More

House Passes Measure to Require Audit of Federal Reserve

2014/09/18

WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) issued the following statement after the House overwhelmingly passed legislation she cosponsored, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2014 (H.R. 24), that directs the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to conduct an audit of the U.S. Federal Reserve: “As the central banking system of the U.S., the Federal Reserve is one of the most important pillars of our economy.  Unfortunately, it operates in secrecy, denying public access to basic information pertaining to its monetary policy decisions, which have an immense impact on every American. It creates money out of thin air, it can make purchases of questionable assets, and it can loan hundreds of billions of dollars to foreign governments and central banks – all out of the sight of the American people and their elected representatives. “Yesterday, the House passed an important measure that would add much needed transparency and accountability to the Federal Reserve’s operations by requiring the GAO to audit the agency and present its finding to Congress and the American people. “Public transparency and accountability are fundamental to our liberty and free society where the people rule, and the primary agency that manages U.S. monetary policy should not be an exemption. I urge our colleagues in the Senate to join us in supporting this bill, which provides for a long overdue audit of the Federal Reserve.” The Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2014 (H.R. 24)  requires the Comptroller General (GAO) to complete an audit of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal Reserve Banks within 12 months of the bill’s enactment.  It also requires the Comptroller General to submit to Congress, within 90 days of completing the audit, a detailed report of its findings and conclusions.  Finally, it repeals certain limitations currently in place that prevent Congress from reviewing how the Reserve manages its delegated authority. This bill previously passed in the 112th Congress by a vote of 327-98. ### Read More

House Passes Resolution to Arm and Train Syrian Forces Fighting ISIL

2014/09/17

Washington – Today, U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10), Vice Chair of the House Homeland Security Committee and Chairman of the Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, issued the following statement after House passage of a resolution that provides the President with temporary authorization to arm and train Syrian fighters to assist in the effort to defeat ISIL:   “The evil the world has seen perpetrated by ISIL over the course of the last year has shown that ISIL is a clear and present danger to the vital national interests of the United States of America, and those of our allies in the region, and across the world.  ISIL has murdered innocent civilians, including ancient Christian communities and other religious minorities that refused to submit to their mandate to convert or die.  We have also seen two innocent American journalists beheaded simply for trying to share the news of the atrocities happening in that part of the world.  “ISIL has spread its message of hate using modern technology to recruit many fighters from nations across the world, including our allies in Europe and even right here in America.  Simply put, ISIL must be confronted and destroyed. “All of this is why I, today, supported a House resolution that gives President Obama the authority to allow members of the U.S. armed forces to train and arm Syrian opposition fighters to assist in the effort to defeat ISIL. I also urge the President to continue working to build a broad coalition of nations from across the world, particularly our Middle Eastern allies, to assist in the effort to defeat ISIL and continue to work with the representatives of the American people in Congress to gain the appropriate authority to accomplish this important mission. “The effort to defeat and destroy ISIL will not be easy and will not be done quickly. We in Congress have a responsibility to work with our Commander-in-Chief to make certain the brave men and women who serve in our armed forces and those of our allies will succeed.” ### Read More

2014/09/17

Washington – Today, U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) applauded the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ announcement that, as part of its Mental Health & Substance Abuse Service Grant Program, it will be awarding the Elkton-Pigeon-Bay Port School District (known as the Laker Schools) a grant totaling $100,000. “Mental illness can be a very serious condition, and it impacts local communities across the country,” Miller stated. “This grant, which will help train teachers and other youth leaders in Huron County to identify and respond to signs of mental illness, is important to building the community engagement needed to ensure early intervention and treatment.”  “Lakers will share this $100,000 grant with all Huron County educators, emergency respondents, and any other group that works with youth to receive mental health first aid training,” said Laker Elementary School Principal and grant applicant Kathy Dickens. “Our goal is to train at least 250 professionals over the next two years.” The Mental Health & Substance Abuse Service Grant Program, administered by the Department of Health and Human Services, is intended to provide funding to support programs for substance use disorders and mental illness.

House Special Panel Releases Final Report on P3s

2014/09/17

Washington – Today, U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10), a senior member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, joined other House members of the Panel on Public-Private Partnerships (P3s) to announce the release of the Panel’s final report. Upon releasing the report, Miller issued the following statement: “In today’s environment, with finite resources, no country or state has the money to keep up with the construction, management and maintenance of our roads, bridges, transit systems, airports, waterways and ports. In the U.S., there are billions of dollars in infrastructure needs in search of funding, particularly in Michigan. “As the only member of this Committee and the Panel from Michigan, I came to the table with particular insight and concerns over the challenges we are facing back home as a border state dependent on commerce crossing both our liquid and land borders.  We also play host to America’s auto industry, which relies on a healthy surface transportation infrastructure. “In my district, we have the Blue Water Bridge, which is the second busiest border crossing on the northern tier and accounts for a large portion of U.S.-Canada trade, worth over $700 billion annually. The problem with the Blue Water Bridge is that, after 9/11, we tightened security protocols at the plaza of the bridge without making the corresponding infrastructure expansion to the bridge’s plaza.  As a result, we have more congestion and less commerce crossing our border.  “Over the past decade, there have been multiple failed attempts to build a new customs plaza, and the federal entities ultimately responsible for the expansion have conceded that it is not a funding priority.  “This is a predicament that states are facing across the country and, although the funding burden ultimately lies with the federal government, states will need to engage if they want to get these projects done.  That’s why, earlier this year, I went to Governor Snyder and asked that he consider a P3 to complete the unfinished plaza at the Blue Water Bridge. “Over the course of the past several months, this Panel heard from both public and private stakeholders.  We heard P3 success stories and examined various types of partnerships designed to accomplish varying projects. We were especially impressed with states like Virginia and Indiana, where they are tapping the private sector to complete infrastructure projects with greater efficiencies and cost savings. “We also learned about some of the hurdles that must be overcome to help facilitate and establish P3s, like reconciling federal procurement procedures to allow for more innovative private investment.  For example, as we saw with the Blue Water Bridge plaza, federal, antiquated scoring policies prevent private investments without a complete federal match up front – a policy that ignores the financial realities we face today and completely contradicts the purpose of a P3.  “To address this roadblock, the Panel recommends a review of the federal scoring rules and how they might be modified to allow more innovative financing going forward.  We also highly recommend that states look to each other, specifically those with early successes with P3s, for guidance on state legislation that permits public-private partnerships.  “As we have seen in virtually every aspect of our economy, the private sector has the capability to bring competitiveness to the table that attracts invested parties and generates greater efficiencies, and the public-private approach is an idea whose time has come. “I always say, ‘economics follow the transportation grid,’ which is why this Panel and its work are so important.  I am hopeful that the findings and recommendations presented by this Panel today are seriously considered moving forward as a way to meet our growing infrastructure challenges.” Established in January by House Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Rep. Bill Shuster, the Panel was to examine the current state of P3s in the United States.  Specifically, it was to identify: (1) the role P3s play in development and delivery of transportation and infrastructure projects in the U.S., and on the U.S. economy; (2) if/how P3s enhance delivery and management of transportation and infrastructure projects beyond the capabilities of government agencies or the private sector acting independently; and (3) how to balance the needs of the public and private sectors when considering, developing, and implementing P3 projects.  A final copy of the Panel’s report is available online: http://transportation.house.gov/uploadedfiles/p3_panel_report.pdf   ### Read More

Detroit News Opinion: In praise of our supreme law

2014/09/17

Today, millions of Americans will commemorate the adoption of the foundational legal document of our nation, the U.S. Constitution. For millions more, perhaps even most Americans, Constitution Day will pass relatively unnoticed. That is a lamentable but inevitable byproduct of living in a free society. The founders would have understood. The Constitution they drafted remains the single most effective and enduring framework for self-governance in human history. From its preamble (“We the People of the United States ...”) through the Bill of Rights (ratified four years later), the U.S. Constitution provides a blueprint for orderly, limited government that maximizes individual liberty and preserves the principle that government authority derives from the consent of the governed. That principle, arising out of the Declaration of Independence and its assertion that all people are born free and endowed with inalienable rights not subject to limit or revocation by a monarch, has served us well. The Constitution, as with all products of human formulation, is not perfect. It failed to forthrightly address the incompatibility of slavery with its own fundamental truth about human equality. It denied women the right to vote. Yet the genius of its creation is evident in the process of amendment incorporated in the original document and immediately used to adopt the Bill of Rights. Over more than two centuries — including through the crucible of the bloodiest conflict in our history, the Civil War — the Constitution has proven to be both resilient and adaptable. Even today, in an era in which we often seem to be defined by our differences, it is important to remember our shared allegiance to its essential propositions. As an elected official, I swore an oath to defend and protect the Constitution. I take seriously its unequivocal declaration of the powers granted to Congress, the president and the courts. And the limits it sets on that authority. The framers understood the concentration of power in a single branch of government — especially the executive — invites tyranny and the destruction of the rights they were determined to protect. I believe those principles are shared by an overwhelming majority of Americans today, whether they observe Constitution Day or not. And that’s something to celebrate. Congresswoman Candice Miller, R-Shelby Township, represents Michigan’s 10th District. ### Read More

Michigan Rural EMS Network to Receive $300,000 Grant from HHS

2014/09/16

Washington – Today, U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) applauded the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ announcement that, as part of its Rural Health Network Development Grant Program, it will be awarding the Michigan Rural EMS Network with a grant totaling $300,000 to establish an independent state resuscitation consortium.  “Originally serving Huron and Sanilac Counties, the Michigan Rural EMS Network has grown into a statewide organization that constantly strives to improve the vital emergency services provided to our rural communities,” Miller stated. “This grant, which will allow the Network to create an independent resuscitation consortium, will help ensure EMS professionals across the state administer the most effective resuscitation procedures that will improve survival rates following cardiac arrest.”  “Michigan Rural EMS Network is very excited about developing a statewide infrastructure that supports response to cardiac arrest in rural communities,” said Michigan Rural EMS Network Executive Director Leslie Hall. “This funding is critical in rural communities where EMS response times are often longer than in urban areas due to the geographic and volunteer characteristics of rural EMS.” The Rural Health Network Development Grant Program, administered by the Department of Health and Human Services, is intended to expand access to quality healthcare services provided in rural areas. Specifically, the program aims to assist health oriented networks in developing and maintaining sustainable networks with self-generating revenue streams. For more information, please visit HHS online: http://www.hrsa.gov/ruralhealth/about/community/networkprogram.html     ### Read More

Rep. Miller Introduces Legislation to Suspend Participation in U.S. Visa Waiver Program for Countries that Fail to Share Pertinent Traveler Information Related to Terror Threats

2014/09/16

Washington – Today, U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10), Vice Chair of the House Homeland Security Committee and Chairman of the Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, introduced the Visa Waiver Improvement Act of 2014 (H.R. 5470) to allow the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to suspend a country’s participation in the U.S. Visa Waiver Program (VWP) if it fails to provide the U.S. with pertinent traveler information related to terror threats.  Her legislation, sponsored by the Chairman and Ranking Member of the full Committee, also strengthens the Department’s counterterrorism efforts by requiring the agency to consider expanding the biographical data collected from foreign applicants. Rep. Miller issued the following statement after introducing her legislation: “On September 11, 2001, our nation saw one of the most heinous attacks in the history of our nation.  It happened, in part, because our visa security and border security defenses were not effective.  As noted by the 9/11 Commission: ‘For terrorists, travel documents are as important as weapons.’ “Today, it continues to be an ongoing vulnerability heightened by the growing threat ISIL poses to our nation. With nearly 40 countries participating in our Visa Waiver Program, terrorists with Western passports pose additional risks to the Homeland because many are eligible for visa-free travel to the U.S.  In fact, reports indicate that as many as 12,000 of the brutal jihadist militants currently fighting in Iraq and Syria hold Western Passports. “While DHS continuously vets all visa applicants against our terrorism databases, the U.S. routinely does not receive the critical information it needs to identify and stop foreign fighters bound for the U.S. from its overseas partners in the waiver program. “To help incentivize our partners in the program, I have introduced legislation that allows DHS to suspend their participation if they fail to provide us with the pertinent information needed to combat terror threats.  Additionally, my bill strengthens our counterterrorism efforts by requiring the agency to evaluate and potentially increase the terror threat data collected by DHS during the waiver application process. “On 9/11, we saw the devastating consequences of a failed process.  This legislation is intended to help prevent failure and improve our ability to protect the Homeland from evolving threats. I am hopeful that my colleagues, from both sides of the aisle, will support this measure to help protect our vital interests.” Highlights of the Visa Waiver Improvement Act of 2014 (H.R. 5470): Allows the Secretary of Homeland Security to suspend participation of countries in the VWP if they do not share terrorism and foreign traveler data with the United States Clarifies that the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is a counterterrorism tool and requires DHS to consider including additional information pertaining to terrorism threats Requires a biennial threat assessment conducted by the Director of National Intelligence and DHS to assess information sharing between VWP countries and the United States Requires a biennial intelligence assessment conducted by the Director of National Intelligence and DHS to assess airport, passport and travel document standards Directs DHS to report, within 30 days, on what additional data might be necessary to improve ESTA as a counterterrorism tool  ###   Read More

Harbor Beach Community Hospital to Receive $85,000 Grant from HHS

2014/09/15

Washington – Today, U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) applauded the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Announcement that, as part of its Rural Health Network Development Planning Grant Program, it will be awarding Harbor Beach Community Hospital with a grant totaling $85,000.  “For over a decade, the Thumb’s rural healthcare network has worked to utilize new technologies to improve the healthcare services they provide their local communities,” Miller stated. “This grant will undoubtedly help Harbor Beach Community Hospital enhance its healthcare and emergency services that improve the quality of life for its nearby residents.” The Rural Health Network Development Planning Grant Program, administered by the Department of Health and Human Services, is intended to expand access to quality healthcare services provided in rural areas. This program provides one-year grants up to $85,000 and allows applicants to develop and implement technology improvements to their network.  For more information, please visit HHS online: http://www.hrsa.gov/ruralhealth/about/community/rhnetworkplanning.html ### Read More

Rep. Miller Statement on the 13th Anniversary of the September 11th Terrorist Attacks

2014/09/11

WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) today made the following statement on the 13th anniversary of the horrific terror attacks against the U.S. that transpired on September 11, 2001: “Thirteen years ago today, September 11, 2001, 19 Islamic terrorists boarded four planes and murdered nearly 3,000 of our fellow Americans, and 372 foreign citizens from 61 countries, who were innocently going about their daily lives.  The hope of the cowardly terrorists was to strike a blow at our values of freedom and liberty for all.  These despicable acts failed to accomplish that goal, and, quite to the contrary, strengthened those values in every American.  The example set that day by the incredibly brave police officers, firefighters and everyday Americans running into danger to give aid to people they did not know, served as inspiration to all Americans and to people throughout the world.  And the passengers on United Flight 93 stood strong and struck the first blow back in the Global War on Terror by stopping the terrorists from reaching their intended target – the U.S. Capitol. “We are so blessed to live in the greatest nation on earth. Unfortunately, we continue to see brutal reminders that evil and extremist forces continue in their efforts to spread evil through unconscionable acts against the innocent.  Today, let us all remain eternally vigilant against those who, through attacking the innocent, hope to diminish what makes our nation great: the freedom we all hold dear.   Every American should also take a moment to pause and reflect on that horrific day, to say a prayer for those who were lost, for those who lost a friend, neighbor or loved one, and one of thanksgiving for those who continue to serve this nation to protect our freedom either as first responders or in uniform across the globe.   May God continue to bless America.” ### Read More

Representative Candice Miller’s career in public service reflects a long history of efficiency and cost effectiveness – from her early roots on the Harrison Township Board of Trustees, to her current responsibilities representing Michigan’s 10th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Representative Miller is currently serving her sixth term after first being elected to office in November 2002.  In addition to representing the views of Michigan’s 10th Congressional District in the Halls of Congress, Representative Miller serves as Chairman of the Committee on House Administration; currently serving as the only woman chair of a committee in the U.S. House of Representatives.  She serves as Vice Chair of the House Committee on Homeland Security, as well as Chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security; and is a member of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.  Representative Miller is also a member of the Deputy Whip Team.  In Congress, Representative Miller has been a leader on protecting the Great Lakes and promoting Michigan industry

Prior to her election to Congress, Representative Miller served two successful terms as Michigan’s Secretary of State.  Miller made dramatically improving customer service the hallmark of her administration and her work was recognized by the voters in 1998 when she was overwhelmingly re-elected, winning every county in the state and becoming the first statewide elected official to achieve a margin of victory of over 1,000,000 votes.  Her leadership not only led to improved services in Secretary of State Branch Offices, but also in the administration of elections.  Following the disputed 2000 election, the Ford – Carter Commission on National Election Reform cited Michigan’s Qualified Voter File, pioneered by Miller, as a national model, and also began the process of implementing a statewide uniform voting system.  All of her election reforms helped to reinforce Michigan’s reputation for free, fair, and open elections.

Representative Miller’s career in public service began when she was elected to the Harrison Township Board of Trustees in 1979.  Only one year later, she was elected Harrison Township Supervisor, becoming the youngest Supervisor in her township’s history, the first Republican since the Great Depression, and the first woman ever elected to the post.  During her 12 years as Supervisor, Harrison Township experienced explosive growth as she held the line on taxes and streamlining government to allow for job creation; all the while being hailed for doing so in an environmentally sensible manner.  In 1992 she was elected Macomb County Treasurer becoming the first Republican to win a countywide office in Macomb County in more than 60 years.

She and her husband, Retired Macomb County Circuit Court Judge Donald Miller, continue to reside in Harrison Township.  Judge Miller formerly served as Colonel in the Air National Guard.  He flew missions in Vietnam and was the base commander at Selfridge Air National Guard Base.  They have one daughter.

For the 113th Congress, Representative Miller was appointed to serve as Chairman of the Committee on House Administration (CHA), and is currently serving as the only woman chair of a committee in the U.S. House of Representatives.  CHA was established in 1947 and is charged with the oversight of federal elections and the day-to-day operations of the House of Representatives.

The Committee has the responsibility to ensure that the House of Representatives runs in an effective and efficient manner which is vital as we work to meet the many challenges facing this great nation.  Most importantly, this committee has jurisdiction over the federal election process, and as Chairman, Representative Miller is committed to making certain that the Committee enacts rules to ensure our nation continues to have open, free and fair elections.

Representative Miller’s past record and work experience as Chief Elections Officer during her time as Michigan’s Secretary of State will assist in accomplishing the many challenges set before our nation and ensuring that America effectively leads in the area of elections as that is the foundation for our democracy.

Representative Miller has served on the House Committee on Homeland Security since March 2008.  Representative Miller is currently serving as Vice Chair of the full House Committee on Homeland Security, and will continue to serve as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Securityfor the 113th Congress, a position she has held since January 2011.  She is also serving as a member of the Subcommittee on Transportation Security.

The federal government’s first and foremost responsibility is to provide for our national defense, and our common defense begins with a secure homeland.  The Committee is charged oversight of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and ensuring the primary focus remains on the protection of the American people.

As Chairman of the Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, Representative Miller has exercised effective oversight and created legislative efforts to ensure our nation’s borders are adequately secured against illegal immigration, drug and human smuggling, as well as the exploitation of the legitimate visa process.  During her tenure as Chairman in the 112th Congress, Representative Miller crafted important oversight legislation, such as to require DHS to produce a plan to secure the border and ensure the right mix of manpower, technology, and infrastructure is implemented to meeting the mission of a secure border.  In addition, Representative Miller crafted legislation to increase oversight over the maritime security mission of DHS, as well as strengthening maritime security at home and abroad as we trade with our trusted partners.

Within her roles on the Committee in the 113th Congress, Representative Miller will continue to push needed legislation that will ensure we implement strong protections for our borders and global supply chain.  Our nation’s borders can and must be secured, and her goal will be to see that DHS is making progress to confront the threats of terrorism, cyber security, and mismanagement of the Department in these areas vital to our national security and continuing to work towards a secure border and a safer homeland.

Michigan’s 10th Congressional District is a border district.  It is home to the Blue Water Bridge which is the second busiest commercial border crossing on the northern tier, Selfridge Air National Guard Base which has expanding missions in the area of homeland security, Coast Guard stations at Selfridge, Port Huron, and Harbor Beach, it borders Chemical Valley which is one of the largest collections of petro-chemical operations in North America, the CN Rail Tunnel which is the busiest rail artery in the U.S., and is where the genesis of important trade arteries interstates I-94 and I-69.

Miller has focused her efforts on building a stronger presence of homeland security assets at Selfridge, enhancing the security of our airways, roadways, railways, and waterways, in addition to securing our food and water supplies by enhancing Northern Border security.

The Committee on Homeland Security was established in 2002 to provide congressional oversight for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and better protect the American people against a possible terrorist attack.  Many of the programs at Selfridge and the armed service reserves throughout the 10th Congressional District fall under the purview of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.  The Committee on Homeland Security provides oversight for the department and handles issues dealing with transportation security, border and port security, critical infrastructure protection, cyber security, and science and technology, emergency preparedness, emerging threats, intelligence and information sharing, investigations, and management and procurement.

In 2007, Representative Miller was appointed to the full House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.  Representative Miller is also a member of the Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials, as well as the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment.  Representative Miller is the only member from Michigan serving on this Committee, and takes seriously the need to advocate on behalf of Michigan to ensure that the state is returned its fair share of tax dollars for many infrastructure needs.  She believes that all avenues of transportation, whether on land or on the sea, are important to improve, maintain, and support surrounding economic growth.

Michigan’s 10th Congressional District is host to the Blue Water Bridge in Port Huron, MI which is the second most traveled border crossing in North America.  It is a vital component of economic expansion, not just for the district, but for the region, state, and nation.  This Committee allows her to offer enhanced oversight and influences to ensure this portal and others like it receive the federal attention they need and deserve.

The Committee also holds jurisdiction over water quality issues. Throughout her career in public service, protecting the Great Lakes has been one of Representative Miller’s principal advocacies.  She is a vocal proponent for policy designed to preserve and protect Michigan’s most cherished natural resource.

The Committee has jurisdiction over all modes of transportation: aviation, maritime and waterborne transportation, highways, bridges, mass transit, and railroads.  The Committee also has jurisdiction over other aspects of our national infrastructure, such as clean water and waste water management, the transport of resources by pipeline, flood damage reduction, the management of federally owned real estate and public buildings, the development of economically depressed rural and urban areas, disaster preparedness and response, and hazardous materials transportation.

The Committee’s broad oversight portfolio includes many federal agencies, including the Department of Transportation, the U.S. Coast Guard, Amtrak, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the General Services Administration, the Army Corps of Engineers, and others.
