Womack Statement on FY 2018 Budget

2017/05/23

Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the below statement following the release of President Trump’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 Budget: 

“The budget signals a desire to make needed reforms to major programs like SNAP and Medicaid, but ignores the primary drivers of the deficit and debt—runaway entitlement programs.  Any attempt to balance the books of the Federal Government without addressing entitlement reform is unrealistic.  Plus, banking on a sustained growth rate of 3% in the economy is dangerous assumption.”


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.

WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the following statement after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director, Robert Mueller, as special counsel to investigate Trump associates involvement with Russian officials:

 

“Given the number and severity of the claims that have arisen – and the fact that these claims are coming from anonymous sources and the media, it’s important the American people now get the facts from an independent investigation.  They deserve the truth.  I have the utmost confidence in former director Mueller’s ability to lead an independent investigation and give the people what they deserve – the truth.”

Womack Statement on Passage of H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act

2017/05/04

Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the below statement after House passage of H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act:

“When I decided to run for Congress in 2010, one of my top priorities was to repeal and replace Obamacare. Since it was signed into law, Obamacare has drastically increased premiums across the country, placed burdensome mandates on our nation's small businesses, and forced families into situations that have created a patient-government relationship rather than a patient-physician relationship. Today, we took a huge step in repealing Obamacare by sending the American Health Care Act to the Senate. I look forward to seeing how this bill will progress through Congress and bring about the changes that are deserved for all Arkansans.”

Womack Seeks Wounded Warrior Fellow

2017/04/06

Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) is seeking a wounded warrior or medically retired veteran for a position in his Rogers district office to handle veteran-related casework and act as a facilitator between constituents and federal agencies.

“Our veterans put our country before themselves at a time when we needed them most. The least we can do is give back by offering meaningful employment when they return. That is why I am proud to work with the Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program to better our service to veterans and military personnel in the Third District,” said Womack.

Established by the U.S. House of Representatives, the Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program was established to create employment opportunities for veterans within the House of Representatives. These two-year fellowships provide veterans with experience and exposure to broaden career opportunities. Positions are available in congressional Member District Offices nationwide.

Applicants must have served on active duty since September 11, 2001, with less than 20 years of service and have a 30 percent or greater service-connected disability rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Interested veterans should submit a résumé, copy of the last DD214 issued, and letter from a military Physical Evaluation Board or the VA indicating a 30 percent or greater rating, which is not necessary if medically retired, to housewoundedwarriors@mail.house.gov.

More information can be found by calling the Wounded Warrior Program Office at (202) 226-1965 or by visiting: https://cao.house.gov/wounded-warrior.

Womack Announces 2017 John Paul Hammerschmidt Fellow

2017/04/05

Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today announced that Kayley Corley, a member of the University of Arkansas - Fort Smith (UAFS) class of 2017, has been selected to serve as the 2017 John Paul Hammerschmidt (JPH) Fellow.

The JPH Fellowship was established in 2013 in conjunction with UAFS and is named for former Arkansas Representative John Paul Hammerschmidt (1966-1993), who passed away on April 1, 2015. It is geared towards highly-motivated college students with an interest in public service and will allow outstanding Third District students to experience the legislative process firsthand in Congressman Womack’s Washington, D.C. office.

After the announcement of Corley’s appointment, Congressman Womack and Dr. Beran, UAFS Chancellor, released the following statements:

“The JPH Fellowship is a small way to honor the life and legacy of a man that did so much for the Third District Arkansans, particularly our students,” said Womack. “I look forward to welcoming Kayley into our office this summer!”

“I have taught Kayley personally in my Chancellor’s Leadership class and have worked with her closely throughout her undergraduate career,” said Beran. “She is an exceptional, motivated student with a bright future ahead of her, and I am excited that she will have this opportunity to pursue her passion for politics in the nation’s capital. As always, we are very thankful for Congressman Womack affording such a valuable opportunity to our students through this fellowship.”

John Paul Hammerschmidt Fellows will earn college credit for completing a strict curriculum that emphasizes hands-on activities that highlight the inner workings of the U.S. House of Representatives, including conducting extensive legislative research, attending hearings, and monitoring activity on the House floor, as well as assisting with constituent communications and general office matters. Congressman Womack hopes to expand the fellowship to other Third District institutions in the future.

Womack, Boozman Welcome Director of Air National Guard to Arkansas

2017/03/31

U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) and Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) joined state and local military and community leaders in welcoming Lt. Gen. L. Scott Rice to the 188th Wing on Friday. Lt. Gen. Rice is the Director of the Air National Guard and visited the state at the request of Boozman and Womack. 

While at Ebbing Air Force Base in Fort Smith, Rice received a briefing and tour of the new mission and facilities of the 188th Wing. He also saw the capabilities of the Wing in demonstrations involving the MC-12 and UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter. After the visit he attended a luncheon hosted by the Fort Smith Regional Chamber of Commerce to visit with local business leaders. At the luncheon, Arkansas Adjutant General Mark Berry thanked Boozman and Womack for their support of the Arkansas Guard. He also praised the leadership of Lt. Gen. Rice and 188th Wing Commander, Col. Bobbi Doorenbos for her outstanding work transitioning the 188th to its new mission.

During his three-day visit to Arkansas, Rice attended the graduation of the first class at the Air National Guard Cyber Skills Validation Course at Little Rock Air Force Base. He also received a briefing on the 189th Airlift Wing Mission, traveled on a C-130H to view select ranges and facilities, and attended a luncheon with the Little Rock Community Council. 

Rice also conducted an Airmen’s Call at the 189th Airlift Wing where he met with approximately 450 Arkansas Guard members. The conversation centered on the vision for the 21st Century Guard Airman and the skills, training and culture necessary to meet the needs of the future military. 

Lt. General L. Scott Rice: “Two things stand out in our visit here. First, the units here in Arkansas clearly show why they are amongst the best. Highly specialized, highly trained professional forces is what we have here in the state. Second, the overwhelming support the communities show for their Air Guard is unmatched.”

U.S. Senator John Boozman: “I am grateful that General Rice spent time in Arkansas to truly understand the great work being accomplished by our men and women in the Arkansas Air National Guard. At the 188th today, he had the opportunity to see the dedication of a unit with strong traditions and a future-focused mission.  It is always impressive to see the work being done at Ebbing Air Force Base. I am proud of the highly trained Airmen of the 188th and 189th who are dedicated to their duties for the National Guard, Arkansas and our nation.”

U.S. Representative Steve Womack: “General Rice has been incredibly gracious with his time in the Natural State, and I believe that is a testament to not only the close relationship he has built with Senator Boozman and me, but also proof that the 188th is a next-generation mission that will be vital to the Air Guard and the Air Force in the years to come. I am thrilled General Rice could see this mission firsthand and am extremely grateful for his leadership.”

Col. Bobbi Doorenbos, Commander of 188th Wing: “The 188th Wing is so fortunate to be surrounded by an incredible community, and to be supported by an extraordinary Congressional Delegation. It's always a pleasure to host them at the wing, and it was a particular honor today to also welcome Lt Gen Rice, the Director of the Air National Guard. Today we had the  opportunity to not only brag on how far we've come in our mission conversion, but also to say thank you to all of our guests who have so steadfastly supported our efforts.”  

Tim Allen, President & CEO of Fort Smith Regional Chamber of Commerce: “The Fort Smith Chamber appreciates Senator John Boozman and Congressman Steve Womack’s commitment to our community. Both the Senator and Congressman continue to demonstrate an unwavering level of support for economic development within our region, especially when it comes to our military. It’s great to have Lieutenant General Rice in Fort Smith today to see firsthand the important role Fort Smith plays in defending the U.S.”

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.
