Rep. Gosar Secures Victory in Quest to Reduce Federal Footprint

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement announcing that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), in response to a request from the Congressman, has created a webpage that displays BLM managed public lands that are potentially available for disposal:

“It’s been almost 20 years since the BLM last submitted a comprehensive report to Congress listing all land under the agency’s jurisdiction not being effectively utilized. Given the fact that the total federal estate exceeds more than 635,000,000 acres, it is irresponsible for the agency to continue to request nearly $90 million a year for more land acquisition without even conducting an inventory of existing lands.

“What Washington bureaucrats fail to realize is that western states, like my home state of Arizona, are sick and tired of big government land grabs that severely limit economic development and reduce opportunities for future prosperity. I’m pleased to see agency officials comply with my request, but it shouldn’t take a scolding from Congress in order for the BLM to provide a list of lands that aren't being utilized and could be used for other purposes. Sportsmen, ranchers, local communities and taxpayers alike benefit from maintaining an updated inventory. By injecting transparency into this process, Congress can make better use of the lands that belong to the American people.”

Background:

The BLM webpage link can be found here: http://www.blm.gov/wo/st/en/prog/planning/planning_overview/lands_potentially0.html

The Federal Government has extensive land ownership in small and large parcels interspersed with or adjacent to private, State, and tribal lands throughout the United States, making many of these parcels difficult to manage and more appropriate for disposal.

On March 3, 2016, Congressman Gosar questioned BLM Director Kornze during a House Natural Resources Subcommittee hearing on the president’s 2017 budget. Following the Congressman’s request, Director Kornze promised to provide members of Congress and the public with a detailed inventory of lands eligible for disposable. Video from the hearing can be found HERE

Currently, only about 18 percent of the land in Arizona is privately held. The overwhelming majority of land is under the jurisdiction of state, federal and tribal governments and these entities control use, development and access.

Rep. Gosar Demands Last Section of Lake Havasu Refuge Be Re-Opened

2016/06/23

For Immediate Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) sent a letter to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) representatives requesting that the agency immediately withdraw the temporary boating restrictions issued on May 20, 2015, that are currently prohibiting water skiing, tubing, wake boarding and towing of other recreational crafts in a ½ mile backwater area on Lake Havasu:

“I applaud Dr. Tuggle and the Service for scrapping the April 12th draft recreational boating compatibility determination (CD). However, there is something critically important that the agency forgot. If the Service was truly interested in working with the community and other stakeholders, it would reopen the Ryde Spot which was unlawfully closed to motorized boating activities in May of 2015. These restrictions were not based on science or merit and are what originally kicked off the whole controversy between the Service and the Lake Havasu community. I will not give up the fight to keep Lake Havasu open for all users until the Ryde Spot is back open for good.” 

Background:

The full text of the Congressman’s letter can be found HERE

On May 20, 2015, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) issued new motorized boating restrictions that arbitrarily expanded a no-wake zone on Lake Havasu, effectively closing the Ryde Spot and prohibiting tubing, waterskiing and wakeboarding in a 1/2 mile area utilized by recreational enthusiasts for decades. This terrible new mandate was announced and implemented just two days before Memorial Day Weekend – an economically vital tourist weekend for Lake Havasu City. Further, it was done behind closed doors, with no notice and no opportunity for public comment.

On April 12, 2016, the Service announced a draft recreational boating compatibility determination and the agency’s intent to pursue even more restrictions on Lake Havasu. Once again, these proposed closures are based on an agenda, not science or need to close even more areas on Lake Havasu to motorized boating activities

In a press release issued today, June 16, by the Service, Dr. Benjamin Tuggle, Southwest Regional Director announced the agency was withdrawing the draft CD announced April 12, 2016. To read the Service’s full statement click HERE.

Congressman Gosar has created a comprehensive information page on his website HERE documenting all relevant facts of this issue as well as a timeline of important events.

Rep. Gosar: “DOWN GOES OBAMA’S AMNESTY”

2016/06/23

For Immediate Release

Date: June 23, 2016

Contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after the Supreme Court affirmed the Court of Appeals decision, leaving in place Judge Andrew Hanen’s injunction that temporarily blocks President Obama’s unconstitutional November 2014 executive amnesty orders from being implemented:

“Today’s Supreme Court decision is a major victory for our Constitution and the American people. Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 of the Constitution grants Congress clear jurisdiction with regard to U.S. citizenship and immigration matters…not the president. While this fight is not over, today’s decision sends a strong message that the Rule of Law is still alive in America and that President Obama cannot circumvent Congress in order to implement his lawless amnesty agenda.”

Background:

Today, the Supreme Court affirmed the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit which upheld Judge Andrew Hanen’s injunction that temporarily blocks President Obama’s unconstitutional November 2014 executive amnesty orders. Click HERE to read the Supreme Court Opinion.

Congressman Gosar has been fighting President Obama’s executive amnesty orders since they were first announced. In March, the Congressman submitted multiple appropriations riders to the House Appropriations Committee aimed at securing the border and defunding President Obama’s executive actions that seek to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. Read more HERE.

Congressman Gosar spearheaded an effort calling on the Government Accountability Office to investigate whether the president’s executive amnesty actions violated the Anti-Deficiency Act. Click HERE to read more about that effort.

More information about Congressman Gosar’s work to uphold and strengthen our immigration laws can be found HERE.

In February of 2015, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen issued an injunction halting President Obama’s November 2014 executive amnesty orders from going into effect.

Judge Hanen’s injunction stemmed from a lawsuit led by Texas Governor Greg Abbott and 25 other states, including Arizona, which argues President Obama did not have legal authority when he bypassed Congress and took executive action in November of 2014 to expand the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and create the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program.

On May 11, 2015, Rep. Gosar and more than 100 members of Congress filed a bicameral amicus brief in support of the continued injunction. The amicus brief can be found HERE.

In November of 2015, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen’s injunction.

On March 17, 2016, Rep. Gosar voted for and the House passed H. Res. 639, legislation that authorized the Speaker to file an amicus brief on behalf of the entire House of Representatives and in defense of Congress’ Article I powers.

While this fight is not over, Thursday's decision sends a strong message that the Rule of Law is alive in America and that President Obama cannot circumvent Congress in order to implement his lawless amnesty agenda. Furthermore, the 4-4 split by the Supreme Court underscores the critical importance of electing a president that will appoint a Supreme Court justice that upholds the Constitution and preserves our nation’s system of separated powers. That justice will likely determine the final outcome in the Texas case.

House GOP Healthcare Plan to Repeal and Replace Obamacare Includes Gosar Input

2016/06/23

For Immediate Release

Date: June 22, 2016

Contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after House Republicans released their fifth plank of their “Better Way” plan, an initiative to repeal and replace Obamacare with an approach that puts patients first and seeks to give every American access to quality, affordable health care:

“As a health care provider for over 25 years, I’m pleased to see House Republicans put forth a bold initiative for repealing and replacing Obamacare and recognize the need to get the facts on the health insurance industry’s exemption from fair competition laws. Repealing the anti-trust exemption for insurance companies will increase competition, lower prices for consumers and prevent collusion in health insurance markets. I am pleased with many of the solutions put forth today and will continue to work with my Republican colleagues to replace the president’s flawed health care law with a patient-centered, affordable alternative.”

Background:

A snapshot provide by House Republican Leadership can be found HERE. The full Healthcare Task Force Report can be found HERE

The Healthcare Task Force Report advances the priorities in Congressman Gosar’s bill, the Competitive Health Insurance Reform Act. Specifically, the plan calls for a comprehensive analysis by the Government Accountability Office on the potential consumer impacts and effects on health insurance premiums if the anti-trust exemption for health insurance companies is repealed.

The Supreme Court ruled in 1944 that the business of health insurance was subject to federal anti-trust laws. As a result, insurance companies lobbied congress to pass the McCarran-Ferguson act of 1945 to create a special-interest exemption from federal oversight that allowed them to collude, share information and divide the market.

After 70 years, it has been made apparent that the unbridled antitrust exemption created by Congress in the 1940’s was not wise.  Over the decades - and expeditiously since the passage of Obamacare in 2009 – the health insurance market has mutated into one of the least transparent and most anti-competitive industries in the United States.

To address this collusion, Congressman Gosar introduced H.R. 494, the Competitive Health Insurance Reform Act of 2015. This legislation seeks to eliminate the loop-hole which exempts the health insurance industry from anti-trust laws. 

A form of this legislation passed the House during the 111th Congress 406-19 and passed the House in the 112th Congress by unanimous consent as a Gosar amendment to the RSC Healthcare bill.

Rep. Gosar Promotes Commonsense Solutions for Managing Western Burro Populations

2016/06/23

For Immediate Release

Date: June 22, 2016

Contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after participating in a House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Federal Lands hearing titled, “Challenges and Potential Solutions for the Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse & Burro Program”:

“Wild burros are creating significant challenges in Arizona and negatively impacting public safety, wildlife and natural resources. Further, misguided efforts to maintain unhealthy levels of burro and horse populations in the West are destroying rangelands as well as leading to animal starvation. Populations have exploded and failed management strategies have proven to be extremely costly and ineffective. Today, we had a great discussion on these issues and some of the potential solutions. I am hopeful that this important hearing will result in sensible solutions for combating these problems.”

During the hearing, Chairwoman of American Farm Bureau Federation Federal Lands Issue Advisory Committee Callie Hedrickson stated: “Wild horse and burro populations on public lands must be properly managed to prevent deterioration of rangeland resources and to minimize expense to the tax-paying public. Horse and burro numbers are far exceeding BLM’s Resource Management Plans (RMPs) within the (Herd Management Areas) HMAs, and large numbers of horses and burros are occupying private and federal lands outside of the HMAs.”

Keith Norris, Chair of the National Horse & Burro Rangeland Management Coalition, and Director of Government Affairs & Partnerships for The Wildlife Society stated: “Wild horse and burro populations already exceed ecologically-based population objectives, and their populations continue to grow at 15-20% per year. Overpopulation of horses and burros threatens the health of public rangelands and negatively impacts several other uses of public rangelands…Wild horse and burro populations currently exceed appropriate management levels (AML) by over 250%, primarily because of the presence of conflicting directives from Congress and the failure of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to comply with Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act (WFRHBA).

Dr. J.J. Goicoechea, testified on behalf of Public Lands Council, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, and the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association stating, “People who truly care about these animals are afraid to do the right thing because they may lose their way of life. How much longer can we turn a blind eye to the real issue? It is time to push the reset button and build a program, for the good of everyone and everything involved.”

Background:

In November of 2015, Congressman Gosar was joined by 19 other bicameral members of Congress in sending a letter to Bureau of Land Management Director Neil Kornze raising significant concerns about management strategies for wild horse and burro populations. That letter can be found HERE

Wild burros are creating significant threats to public safety in Arizona. For example, in a three-year period in Bullhead City, there were 32 accidents involving burros and vehicles. In the Phoenix area during that same time frame, there have been 121 burro incidents and the BLM documented 55 burros that were killed on roadways. Burros are also negatively impacting other wildlife and natural resources.

Earlier this year, Congressman Gosar urged the House Appropriations Committee to take action to address the burro population problem. The Committee responded favorably to his request that sought to allow states to assist with managing wild burro populations by including important language in the Interior Appropriations Committee Report stating, “The Committee further directs the Bureau to work cooperatively with States and other partners to control wild horse and burro herds.”

(From the House Natural Resources Committee): Tens of thousands of wild horses and burros, not native to North America, are currently roaming federal lands across the western United States. Although BLM is authorized to remove excess animals to prevent overpopulation and rangeland damage, the agency recently announced that there are over 67,000 wild horses and burros currently on western federal rangelands—a 15% increase over estimated 2015 population figures. These populations typically grow by 18-20% per year and double in size every 4-5 years. Without additional removals or other means to check exploding on-range populations, including fertility control, population figures will continue to rise steeply.

The large number of wild horses on the range has had serious consequences, including significant rangeland degradation, overgrazing, competition for food and water among ungulates, water quality impacts, devaluation of federal lands, and deteriorating habitat for wildlife species like the Greater Sage-Grouse. In addition, there have been negative impacts to the animals themselves, including starvation, dehydration, and death.

Rep. Gosar to Introduce the Military Amnesty Prevention Act this Week

2016/06/22

For Immediate Release

Date: June 21, 2016

Contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after announcing his plans to introduce the Military Amnesty Prevention Act, legislation which seeks to amend title 10 to prevent the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and other unlawful aliens from enlisting in the Armed Forces:

 “In a quest to cement President Obama’s lawless immigration agenda, his administration hijacked a military pilot program and turned it into another one of the president’s amnesty programs. Military enlistment rules explicitly prohibit illegal aliens from enlisting in the Armed Forces and DACA aliens do not have lawful status. Accordingly, the administration should not be enlisting DACA aliens through a backdoor amnesty program.

 “Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 of the Constitution grants Congress clear jurisdiction with regard to U.S. citizenship and immigration matters. MAVNI is a pilot program created by executive order and the changes that allowed DACA aliens to enlist were never authorized by Congress. At a time when we are in the midst of eliminating 160,000 uniformed personnel positions over a nine-year stretch, we cannot afford to let the Pentagon reduce more opportunities for American soldiers and lawful immigrants through an unconstitutional executive memorandum. The Military Amnesty Prevention Act rejects this unlawful memo and will reassert Congress’s constitutional authority on immigration matters.”

Background:

 The draft text of this legislation can be found HERE

In September of 2014, the Obama Administration took executive action and made illegal aliens eligible for enlistment in the military. Specifically, President Obama’s administration unilaterally expanded eligibility in the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI) program to include DACA aliens through a September 25, 2014 memo.

Prior to this memo, the Executive Branch never attempted to enlist DACA aliens through MAVNI.

 The Department of Defense recently confirmed that 141 total DACA aliens have enlisted in the military through April 30, 2016 as a result of Obama’s backdoor amnesty program. As noted by the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service (CRS), the MAVNI program allows citizenship to be granted to any enlistee that serves at least one day of wartime service. 

MAVNI was never intended to be utilized for the benefit of illegal aliens. Retired Lieutenant Colonel. Margaret Stock, who created and implemented the MAVNI program, previously stated as quoted in a Politico story, “It’s a major bureaucratic screw-up by the Obama administration…The MAVNI program is not designed for DACA at all…It was rather alarming to see DACAs being put into MAVNI. Someone didn’t know what they were doing.” These comments are even more noteworthy as Stock is a big amnesty supporter and testified in support of provisions in an earlier version of the DREAM Act.

 The Gosar legislation allows for all other 22 categories of lawful immigrants and lawful nonimmigrants to enlist through MAVNI and does not terminate the MAVNI program.

 Last week, the House considered Gosar amendment #26 to H.R. 5293. As NumbersUSA stated, the Gosar amendment sought to “return the MAVNI program to its original intent by defunding any extension of the memorandum responsible for expanding MAVNI to include DACA beneficiaries.” Unfortunately, this amendment was narrowly defeated 210-211. NumbersUSA and Heritage Action key voted in favor and endorsed the amendment.  The amendment was also endorsed by Americans for Limited Government, Eagle Forum, and the Federation for Immigration Reform (FAIR).  

 Congressman Gosar filed a similar amendment (#9) to H.R. 4909, the fiscal year 2017 National Defense Authorization Act, which ultimately was not allowed a vote. The amendment sought to amend title 10 to prevent DACA and other unlawful aliens from enlisting in the military. More information can be found HERE

***MEDIA ADVISORY*** Rep. Gosar to Participate in FAIR’s 10th Annual “Hold Their Feet to the Fire” Radio Row

2016/06/21

For Planning Purposes

Date: June 21, 2016

Contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S (AZ-04) will be participating in the 10th annual “Hold Their Feet to the Fire” Radio Row hosted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) tomorrow, Wednesday June 22, 2016. Media outlets wishing to speak with Congressman Gosar should contact his Communications Director Steven Smith at Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

(From the FAIR June 9, 2016 Press Release) The nation’s largest yearly media gathering focused exclusively on immigration issues will take place June 22 and 23 at the Phoenix Park Hotel, 520 North Capitol Street from 6am to 9pm each day. The 10th annual Hold Their Feet to the Fire is hosted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and its 250,000 members and supporters. The event draws dozens of radio talk hosts from across the country who broadcast their shows live while interviewing members of Congress, law enforcement, experts, and those adversely impacted by unsecured borders and illegal immigration.

Given the intensity of the 2016 campaign and its spotlight on the immigration issue, this year’s Hold Their Feet to the Fire is not only the largest ever, it will also be the largest recorded gathering ever of American talk radio in one location focusing on one issue.

Bob Dane, FAIR’s Executive Director notes that, “this event provides the public with insight, clarity, choices, and solutions that emerge during the dialogue between our public officials and talk radio hosts.  More importantly, it is about holding our elected leaders accountable for securing the borders, enforcing immigration laws, and reforming our policies so that America’s broad national interests are properly served.”

About FAIR: Founded in 1979, FAIR is the country's largest immigration reform group. With over 250,000 members nationwide, FAIR fights for immigration policies that serve national interests, not special interests. FAIR believes that immigration reform must enhance national security, improve the economy, protect jobs, preserve our environment, and establish a rule of law that is recognized and enforced.

Additional Background from Congressman Gosar’s office:

Congressman Gosar has a career 100% rating from FAIR and a career grade of “A+” with the immigration enforcement advocacy group NumbersUSA.

The federal government’s failure to prevent illegal immigration and secure the border are two of the most pressing national security risks facing our country. No one knows this better than the people of Arizona, who have to deal with these problems on a daily basis. The Obama Administration’s unwillingness to uphold the Rule of Law has led to large scale illegal immigration, and has inflicted social costs, economic losses, unemployment and crime on U.S. citizens.  

Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 of the Constitution grants Congress clear jurisdiction with regard to U.S. citizenship and immigration matters. Despite this fact, President Obama has continued to circumvent Congress and institute unconstitutional immigration policies by executive fiat. 

Congressman Gosar has been leading the charge in Congress to secure the border and end Obama’s executive amnesty. In March, he spearheaded five legislative efforts to demand that the Appropriations Committee build the fence, defund Obama’s executive amnesty programs, prohibit funds for sanctuary cities, defund Central American amnesty flights and reimburse states for incarcerating illegal immigrants.

The Congressman  has also introduced legislation to prevent illegal aliens from receiving in-state tuition, to resume zero tolerance immigration policies and Operation Streamline, to terminate the Central American amnesty program that flies illegals to the U.S. from three Central American countries, to end outdated U.S. policies that give amnesty to Cubans  and to prevent gang members and violent criminal aliens from receiving amnesty.

Just last week, Congressman Gosar sponsored an amendment to prevent the Obama Administration from operating a backdoor amnesty program that allows illegal aliens to enlist in the military. That amendment failed on the House floor by one vote with a recorded vote of 210-211. This week the Congressman will build on that effort by introducing the Military Amnesty Prevention Act, commonsense legislation that seeks to amend title 10 to prevent Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and other unlawful aliens from enlisting in the Armed Forces.

In Case You Missed It Rep. Gosar Op-Ed in Washington Examiner: Don’t Allow Bad Policy in Lame Duck

2016/06/20

For Immediate Release

Date: June 20, 2016

Contact: Steven D. Smith

Steven.Smith@mail.house.gov

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) penned the following op-ed for the Washington Examiner highlighting Congress’s long and storied history of cramming through bad policy during the lame duck period. Additionally, the Congressman calls on Republican leadership not to allow any controversial or important policy items to be voted on during this year's lame duck.

Don't allow bad policy in lame duck Washington Examiner By: Congressman Paul Gosar June 17, 2016

Back in 1932, Will Rogers famously described the lame duck period in Congress to the New York Times: “It’s like where some fellows worked for you and their work wasn’t satisfactory and you let ’em out, but after you fired ’em, you let 'em stay long enough so they could burn your house down.” Nothing has changed and the American public should be extremely leery of a lame duck following the elections this November.

Congress has a long and storied history of cramming through bad policy during the lame duck period while outgoing lawmakers are still around to vote and before newly-elected lawmakers assume office. These periods are often characterized by arm-twisting and backroom deals.

In the past, the lame duck has been utilized by leadership on both sides of the aisle to wrangle votes for widely unpopular bills in exchange for favors ranging from paying off campaign debts to help in future races.

Since 1935, there have been 20 lame duck sessions. From 1956-1968 there were no lame duck sessions at all. The most egregious lame duck session in modern times occurred in 1980 following the defeat of then President Jimmy Carter and a Democrat Congress. Other periods of time have varied greatly both in terms of days and substantive legislation considered.

During the 2010 lame duck, more pieces of substantive legislation were forced through in the month of December, before Republicans assumed control of the House, than during the eight months prior. Such abuse is a complete affront to our constitutional republic.

Among the legislation pushed through that year was the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” new ratification of the controversial nuclear arms reduction treaty with Russia, and the extension of unemployment insurance. All of these bills were forced through right before Christmas and before the new Congress was sworn-in on January 5th.

Conservatives rightly fear that elected officials who will not be returning to office — and thus are no longer accountable to the American people — will support controversial bills that could have a lasting impact long after they say goodbye to Capitol Hill.

There’s been speculation, for example, that the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a massive multi-national trade agreement, could be voted on during this year's lame duck.

No controversial or substantive legislation should be considered during the upcoming lame duck period. The congressional calendar allows plenty of time for members of Congress to debate, discuss, negotiate and vote on the critical issues facing this country prior to the post-election period.

Last month, more than 75 conservative organizations sent a letter raising similar concerns and requesting that there be no “lame duck” session at the end of the year. However, this shouldn’t be a Democrat v. Republican issue — both parties are guilty of using the lame duck period to push through unpopular pet projects that voters have expressly opposed. I call on Republican leadership not to allow any controversial or important policy items to be voted on during the lame duck and to get the substantive work of the American people done before the November elections.

Congressman Paul A. Gosar, DDS hails from Prescott, Arizona and is serving his second term in Congress as the Representative from Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District.  As a health care provider and small business owner, Gosar is focused on bringing jobs back to the district, reforming health care, reining in government spending, and ensuring that the American people are involved in the solution making process.

Before being elected to Congress in 2010, Gosar owned his own dental practice in Flagstaff for twenty-five years.  His experience in Dentistry earned him the recognition of the Arizona Dental Association’s “Dentist of the Year,” and he was also inducted into the Arizona Dental Association’s Hall of Fame.  His experience in working to reform health care first came when he served as the President of the Arizona Dental Association and as the Vice-Chair of the American Dental Association Council on Governmental Affairs.

Whether Gosar is in Washington fighting for his constituents, or back home in Arizona listening to the people and working together to find solutions to the problems that face Arizona’s Fourth Congressional District, he remains committed to ushering in a new era of government that empowers individuals and reforms the bureaucratic procedures that stifle job creation and innovation.
