Fitzpatrick Meets With Montgomery County Farm Bureau, Family Farmers

2014/08/22

LEDERACH, PA – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) joined the Montgomery County Farm Bureau Board of Directors and members of the upper Montgomery County agricultural community Friday for a discussion about current events in the nation’s capital as well as challenges facing family farmers.

“The local family farm is the original small business,” said Fitzpatrick. “Connecting with Montgomery county farmers this August not only gives me a chance to talk to them about legislation in the nation’s capital aimed at advancing our economy, but to also hear what concerns they face as business and community leaders.”

Fitzpatrick focused much of the informal conversation on the agricultural community’s concern about overregulation as well as topics including the state of the economy, immigration, and the rising cost of health care.

“Congressman Fitzpatrick always makes himself available and keeps the lines of communications open,” said John Caroff, president of the Montgomery County Farm Bureau. “Meetings like today’s are a true testament of an elected official who is concerned about his constituents and the industries in his district.”

“Like other family-run businesses, Pennsylvania’s farms thrive when given the opportunity to succeed. The federal government needs to heed the concerns of the agricultural community when it comes to excessive regulations and red tape that prevent them from putting food on our tables,” added Fitzpatrick. “Leaders in our capital need to support bipartisan policies that empower families and industry – including agriculture – to create better jobs and more opportunity. I’m proud to take the concerns and comments I’ve heard today to Washington to help advance those initiatives.”

Fitzpatrick: Investing in the American Worker Vital to Better Jobs, More Opportunity

2014/08/21

EAST GREENVILLE, PA – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) once again highlighted bipartisan proposals to help secure better jobs and more opportunity for Bucks and Montgomery county families Thursday while addressing the Upper Perkiomen Valley Chamber of Commerce.

“Whether it’s investing in the American worker, or investing in the American manufacturer, these worthy goals require public-private participation, bipartisanship and continued commitment to creating better jobs and more opportunity,” said Fitzpatrick. “I’m working, each day, in the Capitol and in Montgomery County to help remove some of the obstacles, we’ve talked about today, while working to provide the tools that will drive the economic engine and get us where we want to be. “    

Fitzpatrick was the lead speaker at the chamber’s Legislative Affairs Council breakfast held at the Globe Inn. In his remarks, Fitzpatrick highlighted his support for the recently signed into law bipartisan Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act that reforms federal job training programs as well advancing American-made standards for manufacturers and consumers.

“By incentivizing manufacturers to meet certain ‘Made in America’ benchmarks for domestic production and providing consumers with reliable and easy to understand information, the Made in America Act can meet two valuable goals: reshoring American businesses and jobs by promoting American-made goods,” said Fitzpatrick. “Ideas like these embody the ‘radical middle’ that I represent as your voice in Washington – a space where plans to support and advance the American economy and American families can thrive.”

Also speaking at the event were Pennsylvania State Senator Bob Mensch (R-24) and State Representatives Justin Simmons (R-131).

A Bipartisan Plan for Better Jobs, More Opportunity

2014/08/14

LANGHORNE, PA – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) continued his economic focus Thursday addressing the Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce and discussing his plan to invest in the American worker by strengthening American manufacturing to create opportunity for all.

“Americans and American business deserve policies and solutions that empower them - and common sense reforms that inspire innovation, job creation and opportunity,” said Fitzpatrick. “To achieve any of these worthy goals we need public-private participation, bipartisanship and commitment. By working together we lay the groundwork for the achievement of hard-working American families and the success of the American economy.”

Fitzpatrick was the keynote speaker at the chamber’s Business Connect meeting held at Cairn University. In his remarks, Fitzpatrick highlighted bipartisan legislation introduced and passed through the House, as well as initiatives focused on empowering workers and families through educational, regulatory and tax reform, advancement of American-made standards and investment in infrastructure.

“I have confidence in the American spirit and the resilience of Americans, knowing that is what will take us to the goal line,” added Fitzpatrick. “I’m working, each day, in the Capitol and in Bucks County to help remove some of the obstacles, we’ve talked about today, while helping provide the tools that will drive the economic engine and get us where we want to be.”     

Following the address, Fitzpatrick answered a series of questions, including on the topics of the need for increased bipartisanship, tax reform and declaring American energy independence.

”We are always excited and honored to have Congressman Fitzpatrick speak at one of our events,” said Dan Bates, president of the Lower Bucks County Chamber of Commerce. “Our members come to this monthly morning breakfast meeting for pertinent information and the Congressman is always willing to give us updates on the most critical issues and what he feels are the top priorities of discussion for the business community here in Lower Bucks.”

The Lower Bucks Chamber of Commerce consists of over 1,000 members representing small, medium and large business and professional firm across 22 municipalities in Lower Bucks County.

Fitzpatrick Touts ‘Small BREW Act’, Bucks Co. Craft Beer in Visit

2014/08/12

PERKASIE, PA –Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) visited Free Will Brewing Co. Wednesday to discuss issues facing small businesses and reiterate his support for the Small BREW Act [H.R. 494] to benefit craft brewers.

“There are more than 2,300 small breweries across the country – including dozens in the Philadelphia region and over 100 throughout our commonwealth,” said Fitzpatrick. “These breweries are small businesses – employing thousands of skilled workers and creating products which help define our communities and culture. As small businesses, they understand the forces that drive production, growth and hiring – as well as the taxes and regulations that hold them back. That’s why the Small BREW Act is so important.”

The bipartisan Small Brewer Reinvestment and Expanding Workforce (BREW) Act cuts the excise tax rate on the first 60,000 barrels by 50 percent - from $7.00 to $3.50 a barrel. For example, Free Will Brewing is on pace to produce 2,500 barrels this year and would stand to save $875 per month, $10,500 per year, from the legislation. It’s estimated that, nationwide, enactment of the Small BREW Act would generate 4,400 jobs in the first year along with $153 million in increased economic activity.

"As a small business, most all of our profits go back into Free Will Brewing Co. to fuel our growth, we still pay excise tax as it is based on volume, not profit.,” said Dominic Capece, co-owner and general manager. “The Small BREW Act would provide substantial savings that we can use to add equipment and personnel."

Aside from Free Will Brewing, other Bucks County breweries include: Naked Brewing Company in Huntington Valley, Neshaminy Creek Brewing in Croydon, Broken Goblet Brewing in Bristol. In 2012, Pennsylvania craft brewers produced 1.78 million barrels of craft beer – second most in the nation – with an economic impact of nearly $2 billion.

“Small brewers have a special place in the history of our nation dating back to our founders. While the times and technologies have changed, the role of these operations – economically and socially – has not,” said Fitzpatrick. “Like all businesses, craft breweries need a government that allows them to create and expand. Common sense legislation like the Small BREW Act allows owners and employees to continue their passion, while putting people to work.”

Fitzpatrick, First Savings of Perkasie Award Grant to Habitat for Humanity

2014/08/12

PERKASIE, PA – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) joined community lenders Wednesday as they awarded a grant to help Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County complete work on the second phase of Penn Villa, a 10-townhome neighborhood being built in Sellersville.

“Habitat for Humanity provides a hand up, not a hand out to families in need in our communities. This grant goes a long way to securing the future of families by giving them the means to build and own their own home,” said Fitzpatrick. “It is a pleasure to join both Habitat and local community lenders to help present this grant and I look forward to working with both in the future to support our neighbors in need.”

Today’s $76,992 grant, presented by First Savings Bank of Perkasie in association with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh (FHLBank), will assist Habitat Bucks as it completes work on the second cluster of townhomes at Penn Villa by this December. Habitat opened its first cluster of townhomes at the site last October, housing five Habitat partner families. The families who will occupy the second cluster have already been identified and include a single male veteran, a husband and wife with four daughters currently living in a basement apartment, a retired disabled man, a single mother and her son, and a husband and wife with four children.

To prepare the new residents for the experience of homeownership at Penn Villa, Habitat Bucks assigns advocates to assist them in developing the budgeting and maintenance skills needed to make homeownership successful. Family members are also providing “sweat equity” by helping to build their own or a neighbor’s home.

In addition to corporate sponsors and individual donors, members of veterans groups and faith-based organizations have helped raise funds and are volunteering their labor to bring two of the five remaining homes to completion.

“We are so appreciative of this grant from FHLBank which will cover a significant portion of project costs,” said Florence Kawoczka, the executive director of Habitat Bucks. “This funding will greatly assist us in serving our families and is also an opportunity to partner with our good friends at First Savings Bank of Perkasie.”

All families who qualify for a Habitat Bucks home must have lived or worked in Bucks County for at least one year and their living conditions at the time of application must be judged to be substandard, Kawoczka said.

Families who moved into the first cluster of townhomes at Penn Villa last fall include a working couple pursuing their college degrees while raising two young daughters, a couple with two young boys, a husband and wife with four children, and a veteran, his wife and their two children.

Wednesday’s grant was awarded in a ceremony at First Savings Bank of Perkasie. First Savings’ President and CEO, Frederick Schea, serves on the board of directors of FHLBank Pittsburgh and helped facilitate the grant funded through FHLBank’s Affordable Housing Program. Other attendees included Kowaczka of Habitat Bucks, Schea of First Savings, and Kris Williams, chief operating officer of FHLBank Pittsburgh.

Fitzpatrick Calls on President to Buy American

2014/08/11

LANGHORNE, PA –Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) has joined a group of lawmakers calling on the president to protect ‘Buy American’ preferences for government purchasing in the face of new international trade agreements that could harm U.S. businesses and workers.

“While international trade and trade agreements are essential to the continued success of the American economy, that trade should not overturn long standing federal rules requiring the government to buy American-made products,” said Fitzpatrick. “American negotiators of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) appear to have agreed to treat all products of TPP nations as ‘American’ – undercutting the long standing Buy American measures. That’s unacceptable and the president should step up and prevent it.”

Fitzpatrick notes that the proposed trade agreement terms could result in U.S. tax dollars being invested in manufacturing sectors in other nations, rather than in American-operated businesses. A decision to alter Buy American preferences could disrupt the Buy American Act of 1933 and congressionally-approved purchasing policies.

“It is crucial that you protect the integrity of Buy America preferences. The Buy American requirements have had a key role and lasting impact in creating jobs and bolstering the economy of the United States,” reads the letter sent to President Obama (attached). “Any ‘national treatment’ terms [in the TPP] should not require us to waive long standing Buy American policies…”

Fitzpatrick has championed American manufacturing during his time in Congress, serving as an outspoken voice for Bucks and Montgomery county manufacturers and employees. He has led the push to address the nation’s growing ‘Skills Gap’ with the introduction of the bipartisan Skills Gap Strategy Act and his support for the bipartisan Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act which was recently signed into law, overhauling the nation’s job training programs to be more competitive. Additionally, Fitzpatrick introduced the bipartisan Made in America Act which highlights American-made products and incentivize manufacturers to increase domestic production.

Fitzpatrick Helps Bucks Co. Family Receive Father’s WWII Medals

2014/08/07

BENSALEM, PA – At a ceremony Friday, Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) presented Mae Schlosser of Bensalem with five medals earned by her late father during World War II more than 70 years ago, but were never received.

Raymond Kelly served in the United States Navy during World War II from October 1943 to May 31, 1944, and saw action in multiple theaters. Kelly’s flotilla was active in Arawe, Cape Gloucester, Finschafen, Talasea, Saidor, Aitape, Hollandia, and the Schouten Islands.

“Americans from each generation have put their lives on the line in the name of freedom and the service of others. That service and sacrifice deserves to be recognized – including that of Mr. Kelly,” said Fitzpatrick. “I’m grateful to have the opportunity today to right a wrong and award these medals to Mr. Kelly’s daughter. Each veteran deserves the support and acknowledgment of a grateful nation.”

Kelly never received, the Navy Good Conduct Medal, the World War II Victory Medal, the American Campaign Medal, the Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal & Four Bronze Star Appurtenances, and the European-Africa-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal. Each medal was presented to his daughter, along with a congressional certificate and an American flag flown over the Capitol Building.

“I really appreciate Congressman Fitzpatrick’s help, it’s a thrill,” said Ms. Schlosser. “The items from today will be passed down for generations; the flag to one daughter and the medals to the other.”

Fitzpatrick’s staff includes Military and Veteran’s Affairs caseworkers who are available to assist Bucks and Montgomery county veterans and families with military records, federal agencies requests, VA benefits and more. Please contact the Congressman’s Langhorne District office at 1717 Langhorne-Newtown Rd., Suite 400, Langhorne or by phone at 215-579-8102.

Fitzpatrick Votes to Boost Border Security, Stem Illegal Immigration

2014/08/02

WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) released the following statement Friday regarding the House passage of legislation to strengthen border protection efforts and address the crisis on the southern border:

To meet the urgent need to address this challenging crisis, the House took action to achieve three primary goals: Protect the border, protect the children and prevent this from ever happening again. Tonight, we passed legislation to protect the border by giving law enforcement more resources to enforce our laws, provide more humanitarian assistance to those involved, and increase efforts to prevent similar situations in the future. These measures respond to the circumstances facing our nation in a realistic and compassionate way.  It is my hope that the House and the Senate will come to agreement as soon as possible.

There is an urgency to this crisis that requires a unified response. It requires a commitment to enforce our laws and it requires us to act humanely.  It is my hope that the president and all our leaders will take the bold steps necessary to see that our  nation of immigrants remains true to its founding principles and true to the laws that guide us and welcomes all those who are willing and eager to follow the lawful path to freedom.

Fitzpatrick: Highway Funding Bill Important; Long-Term Fix Vital

2014/08/01

WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) released the following statement regarding the president’s pending signing of the House’s $11 billion highway funding bill and calling for a long-term fix to infrastructure funding:

“Across Bucks and Montgomery counties, infrastructure projects are moving at full speed, putting Pennsylvanians to work and improving our roads.  However, for the past several months, the progress of over 7,000 nationwide of these projects nationwide have been threatened by the prospect of the Highway Trust Fund running empty.  I am pleased that the Senate took bipartisan action on the House bill I supported to replenish funding and that the president is poised to sign the measure into law – preventing the stalling of thousands of projects and the lost of tens of thousands of jobs.

While this will provide important funding through next spring to the Highway Trust Fund, it is vital that Congress produces a long-term funding solution for our national infrastructure projects. 

My bipartisan ‘Partnership to Build America Act’ is a lasting solution.          

Simply put, we cannot continue to kick the can down the road, and waste this opportunity to provide America with the 21st century infrastructure it needs to remain globally competitive. This bill has support from both parties and in both chambers.   It presents the opportunity to put over $750 billion into American infrastructure without burdening hardworking taxpayers. I will continue to advance this legislation throughout the year as Congress addresses this critical concern.”

Fitzpatrick introduced the Partnership to Build America Act along with Congressman John Delaney (D-MD). The legislation would create an American Infrastructure Fund to provide loans or guarantees to state or local governments to finance qualified infrastructure projects.  These guarantees will use revenues from repatriated corporate earnings as a funding mechanism to provide a total of $750 billion in infrastructure financing.

Additionally, Fitzpatrick has introduced the Fairness to Veterans for Infrastructure Investment Act [H.R. 2906] which would provide veteran-owned businesses access to existing contracting preferences authorized for federal transportation projects to ensure that our nation’s veterans play an important role in revitalizing our infrastructure economy.

Fitzpatrick: Making the VA Work for Veterans

2014/07/30

WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) released the following statement Wednesday following the passage of the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act [H.R. 3230] - ­ the House-Senate VA reform bill to strengthen the agency in the wake of the expanding scandal:

After over a month of deliberation and debate, I am glad to have the opportunity to support this bipartisan legislation which strengthens our commitment to veterans’ benefits and care.

The ‘Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act’ represents an agreement on efforts to make the VA more transparent and responsive to the needs of the veterans. In addition to reducing wait times for medical care, the bill includes funds to increase the number of VA medical professionals and buildings, as well as provisions to remove ineffective senior managers and improve education benefits.

While there is work to be done to reform the VA in the wake of this scandal, and details about the depth of corruption and impropriety at the agency continue to be exposed, this bill represents a step toward making the VA work for veterans.

Legislative highlights from the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act:

To improve access to and quality of care for veterans, the bill would:

·         Require VA to offer an authorization to receive non-VA care to any veteran who is enrolled in the VA health care system as of August 1, 2014, or who is a newly discharged combat veteran if such veteran is unable to secure an appointment at a VA medical facility within 30 days (or a future published goal established by VA) or resides more than 40 miles from the nearest VA medical facility, with certain exceptions.

o   Require VA to provide a Veterans Choice Card to eligible veterans to facilitate care provided by non-VA providers.

o   Provide $10 billion for the newly-established “Veterans Choice Fund” to cover the costs of this increased access to non-VA care. Choice program authority would end when funds are exhausted or three years after enactment, whichever occurs first.

·         Require an independent assessment of VA medical care and establish a Congressional Commission on Care to evaluate access to care throughout the VA health care system.

·         Extend the ARCH (Access Received Closer to Home) pilot program for two years.

·         Extend for three years a pilot program to provide rehabilitation, quality of life, and community integration services to veterans with complex-mild to severe traumatic brain injury.

·         Improve the delivery of care to veterans who have experienced military sexual trauma as well as care for Native Hawaiian and Native American veterans.

To expand VA’s internal capacity to provide timely care to veterans, the bill would:

·         Provide $5 billion to VA to increase access to care through the hiring of physicians and other medical staff and by improving VA’s physical infrastructure.

·         Authorize 27 major medical facility leases in 18 states and Puerto Rico.

To provide real accountability for incompetent or corrupt senior managers, the bill would:

·         Authorize VA to fire or demote Senior Executive Service (SES) employees and Title 38 SES equivalent employees for poor performance or misconduct.

o   Provide an expedited and limited appeal process for employees disciplined under this authority. Appeals would go to a Merit Systems Protection Board administrative judge, who would have 21 days to decide on the appeal. If a decision is not reached within that 21-day period, then VA’s decision to remove or demote the executive is final.

o   Prohibit SES employees from receiving pay, bonuses and benefits during the appeal process.

·         Reduce funding for bonuses available to VA employees by $40 million each year through FY 2024.

 To improve education benefits for veterans and dependents, the bill would:

·         Require public colleges to provide in-state tuition to veterans and eligible dependents in order for the school to remain eligible to receive G.I. Bill education payments.

·         Expand the Sgt. Fry Scholarship Program to provide full Post 9/11 G.I. Bill benefits to spouses of servicemembers who died in the line of duty after 9/11.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, the bill would result in net spending of roughly $10 billion from 2014 - 2024, making it less expensive than previous VA reform packages passed by the House and Senate.

Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick is a lifelong resident of Bucks County, where he has been an active member of his community for decades.  In the 113th Congress, Mike’s number one priority is job creation.  Mike recognizes that government does not create jobs, but fosters an environment in which the private sector can create permanent, family sustaining jobs.

Mike graduated from Bishop Egan High School in Fairless Hills and earned his bachelor’s degree while working his way through St. Thomas University in Miami, Florida. Upon graduation, Mike was awarded the university’s highest service award.

His record on open space earned him recognition from a variety of environmental organizations, including the Greenspace Alliance.

During his time as Commissioner, Mike led the fight to establish the county’s first Enterprise Zone, a project that eventually led to the creation of over 4,000 private sector jobs in Bucks County.

As a Member of the 109th Congress Mike demonstrated himself to be an independently- minded advocate for his constituents. He fought for stronger borders, lower taxes and smaller budget deficits. Locally he worked successfully to bring the National Veterans’ Cemetery to Bucks County.  Mike was also instrumental in flood mitigation efforts along the Neshaminy Creek watershed, which had been plagued by persistent flooding.
