Press Release: Womack Statement on Passage of H.J.Res. 43

2017/02/16

Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the below statement after House passage of H.J.Res. 43, which disapproves of the Department of Health and Human Services rule that prohibits states from withholding Title X funding from a potential recipient for “reasons other than its ability to provide Title X services”:

“Like the vast majority of my constituents, I believe that life begins at conception, and I will always be committed to protecting it. I am proud to vote to restore states’ abilities to choose what entities receive Title X funding, allowing for health departments, hospitals, and federally qualified health centers to receive the funding that they so badly need while reflecting a state’s values rather than being forced to promote organizations – like Planned Parenthood – that do not.”

Congressman Steve Womack has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011 and serves on the House Appropriations Defense, Military Construction-Veterans Affairs, and Labor-Health and Human Services subcommittees and the House Committee on the Budget.

Womack Statement on Fiduciary Rule Executive Order

2017/02/03

Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the below statement on President Trump’s executive action regarding the Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) fiduciary rule:

“I commend President Trump and his decision to delay the implementation of the DOL’s misguided fiduciary rule. If implemented, the fiduciary rule would change the way that millions of Americans save for retirement and restrict the options available to them in planning for the future. It is yet another example of the unintended consequences of government intrusion, and I welcome the President’s efforts to ease the regulatory pressure that so many Americans feel.”

Womack Introduces Constitutional Amendment to Protect U.S. Flag from Desecration

2017/02/03

Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3), joined by Congressmen Steven Palazzo (MS-4), Bradley Byrne (AL-1), Robert Aderholt (AL-4), Trent Franks (AZ-8), Paul Cook (CA-8), Ralph Abraham (LA-5), Jeff Fortenberry (NE-1), Mark Amodei (NV-2), Bill Johnson (OH-6), Joe Wilson (SC-2), Marsha Blackburn (TN-7), Pete Olson (TX-22), and Evan Jenkins (WV-3), introduced H.J.Res. 61, a joint resolution which restores Congress’s constitutional authority to ban the desecration of the United States flag.

Until invalidated by the 1989 U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Texas v. Johnson, 48 states had laws banning flag desecration. H.J.Res. 61 reinstates the American people’s power to protect our most important national symbol by granting Congress the authority to prohibit physical desecration of the flag.

Upon introduction, Congressman Womack released the below statement:

“Americans from every generation have laid down their lives to protect our flag – the worldwide symbol of freedom and democracy. As the stewards of their memory and sacrifice, it is our duty to ensure that generations in the future understand their service was not in vain. The American people have simply given too much for the flag to not have the ability to protect it.”

Members of Congress have bipartisanly supported the passage of this amendment since the 1989 Supreme Court decision. To date, a joint resolution giving Congress power to prohibit the physical desecration of the American flag has been passed by the House six times, most recently in 2005. Passage in the Senate has fallen just short of the 67 votes required for passage in the Senate three times, most recently in 2006.

The final text of the joint resolution can be found here.

Arkansas Congressional Members Visit Deploying Arkansas Guard Members at Fort Bliss

2017/01/27

U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) and Congressmen Steve Womack (AR-03) and Bruce Westerman (AR-04) spent today with Arkansas National Guard members at Fort Bliss, Texas, as the soldiers prepare for overseas deployment.

“It was an honor to join Arkansas National Guard members at Fort Bliss as they finalize their training and prepare for their overseas mission. These men and women are making tremendous sacrifices in defense of our nation, and I am grateful for this opportunity to share my appreciation for their selfless service. I am proud of these soldiers and pleased to hear about their successful training. My prayers are with them and their families as they deploy and carry out their mission,” Boozman said.

“As the former commander of the first overseas deployment of a Guard battalion in the wake of September 11, it is truly an honor to join these brave Arkansans as they finalize mobilization activities. I have a special place in my heart for the Guard and know firsthand the challenges of the M-day soldier and airman. I’ve lived it and unequivocally believe in the Guard’s proven capability and in the ability of these ‘Warriors.’ Both are fundamental to ensuring a safe and successful America in a world where the proliferation of threat is unprecedented,” said Womack. “I am proud of these men and women and am praying for a successful mission and their families back home.”

“Keeping America and the world safe from harm through the projection of strength is no easy task. The men and women of our armed forces understand that personal sacrifices must be made in order to guarantee this safety. As the men and women of the Arkansas National Guard prepare to deploy overseas, I wanted to personally say thank you. It takes a person of great character to volunteer for service in the military and all of Arkansas should be proud of the service of their fellow citizens in uniform,” said Westerman.

Soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 153rd Infantry Regiment of the 39th Infantry Brigade are finalizing mobilization activities. The congressional delegation attended a historic Casing of the Colors and Patch Ceremony to honor the unit’s completion of mobilization and readiness to deploy.

Nearly 700 Arkansas National Guard members have been stationed at Fort Bliss since New Year’s Day as they complete stateside training before a deployment to the Horn of Africa in support of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM).

Womack Statement on Swearing-in of President Donald J. Trump

2017/01/20

Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the following statement after President Donald J. Trump took the oath and was sworn into office:

“Today, I was proud to stand with my wife, Terri, on the West Front of the Capitol to witness the swearing-in of America’s 45th President Donald J. Trump and 48th Vice President Michael R. Pence. For the past eight years, Republicans in Congress have fought to protect the conservative values of our center-right country and fought back against a liberal agenda that was to the detriment of our people. We and the American people alike were frustrated to have the good work coming out of Congress stonewalled rather than having an Administration willing to work with us.

“This historic day brings much promise and the opportunity for which we’ve been waiting. The responsibility is on us, and we have much to do. Together with the Trump Administration, I believe the 115th Congress will do exactly what the American people have asked of us. My sleeves are rolled up, and I’m ready.”

ICYMI: Womack Voices Support for Budget Resolution, Repealing Obamacare on House Floor

2017/01/13

On Friday, January 13, 2017, in a speech given on the House Floor, Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) spoke in support of S.Con.Res. 3, the budgetary and procedural measure that sets the congressional budget for the United States Government and begins the reconciliation process, the necessary first step in repealing Obamacare. S.Con.Res. 3 subsequently passed the House by a vote of 227-198.

 

“Mr. Chairman, by adopting this Budget Resolution, we will set into motion the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

“Last week, on this very Floor, the Minority Leader, Ms. Pelosi stood here and called Obamacare a ‘magnificent success.’ And yet, since being sworn into office in 2011, I have heard just the opposite from my constituents. Every single day, I have heard that Obamacare is raising the cost of health care, creating uncertainty in Arkansas, hurting Americans…. That we need to replace it with real reforms that focus on the patient, not the government.

“But this law is not just bad for patients and health care consumers. Obamacare’s onerous mandates and endless regulations are hitting industry across the board – it stifles business; it squelches private-sector job growth; and it hurts our economy.”

Congressman Stephen A. Womack, 59, is a native of Russellville, Arkansas.  After attending K-10 in Moberly, Missouri, Womack’s family returned to Arkansas in 1973, and he graduated from Russellville High School in 1975.  Womack earned a Bachelor’s degree from Arkansas Tech University in 1979 and, after graduation, was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the Arkansas Army National Guard.

In the fall of 1979, Steve relocated to Rogers where he and his father established KURM Radio, and he served as station manager from 1979-1990.  In August of 1990, Steve accepted an assignment with the University of Arkansas Army ROTC program and served as Executive Officer of the program for six years.  In 1996, Steve was hired as a financial consultant with Merrill Lynch.

On November 3, 1998, Steve was elected Mayor of Rogers and served in that capacity for twelve years.  During his tenure, the City of Rogers experienced exponential economic growth, adding $1 billion in new development with major improvements to the city’s infrastructure, retail services, and quality of life amenities.

Steve also served on numerous boards and commissions in Northwest Arkansas serving as Chairman of the Northwest Regional Planning Commission, Chairman of Rogers United Way, board member of the Rogers-Lowell Chamber of Commerce, and the Rogers Parks Commission.  A former Rotarian, Steve is also a Paul Harris Fellow.  In 2014, he was inducted into the Arkansas Tech University Hall of Distinction as a Distinguished Alumnus.

In the Army National Guard, Steve served in a variety of command and staff assignments, including command of 2nd Battalion, 153rd Infantry, 39th Separate Infantry Brigade. Following the tragic events of 9-11, Steve’s battalion was mobilized for duty with the Multi-National Force and Observers (MFO), Sinai, Egypt in 2002.  It marked the first time in the history of the 39th Brigade that a battalion was deployed overseas.  It was also the first time in the MFO history the US Battalion mission was conducted by a pure National Guard unit.  Steve’s task force received praise from the highest levels of civil and military leadership around the world and is credited with convincing Army leadership of the capabilities and readiness of the Army Guard.

Steve retired with over thirty years of service from the Arkansas Army National Guard October 31, 2009, at the rank of Colonel. His decorations include the Legion of Merit, the Meritorious Service Medal with oak leaf cluster, the Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, and the Global War on Terror Expeditionary and Service Medals, and the Arkansas Distinguished Service Medals.  Steve was inducted into the Arkansas Officer Candidate School Hall of Fame in 2011, and in 2015, he was awarded the Harry S. Truman Award – the highest recognition conferred upon an individual by the National Guard Association of the United States – for his contributions of exceptional and far-reaching magnitude to the defense and security of the United States.

In the House, Steve serves on the Appropriations Committee and the Defense, Financial Services, and Labor-Health and Human Services subcommittees, as well as the House Budget Committee.  Steve is also on the Whip Team and various caucuses.

Steve has been married to his wife, Terri, for over 31 years, and they have three grown sons and two grandsons, Liam and Kaden.
