Duffy Highlights Need For Proxy Advisory Reform Legislation

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Sean Duffy (R-WI) and Congressman Dan Newhouse (R-WA) today released the following statement regarding the Securities and Exchange Commission’s statement from the staff of the Division of Investment Management relating to Staff Proxy Advisory Letters:

 

“I have been working my heart out for proxy advisory reform legislation, and the SEC’s announcement of the withdrawal of letters issued to Egan-Jones Proxy Services and Institutional Shareholder Services, Inc. shows why it is needed. I want to commend the SEC on its action and look forward to its upcoming roundtable to study the proxy advisory process. I hope the Senate takes not of the action taken by the SEC and is a willing partner for this legislation.”

Congressman Sean Duffy Introduces Legislation To Delist The Gray Wolf

Congressman Sean Duffy Introduces Legislation To Delist The Gray Wolf

 

Washington DC – Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, Chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing & Insurance, today introduced legislation, with bipartisan support, that would return management of gray wolves to state control.

 

Management of these gray wolves were transferred from the state to the federal level following two 2014 U.S. District Court decisions that reinstated gray wolves under the protections of the Endangered Species Act. These designations leave farmers and ranchers in those states without a legal avenue to protect their livestock from wolves.

 

“Wisconsin deserves the opportunity to use science-based wildlife management for our own gray wolf population, because we know what’s better for our state’s ecosystem better than activist judges in Washington,” said Congressman Duffy. “I’m proud to introduce bipartisan legislation to delist the gray wolf because Wisconsin farmers deserve to be able to protect their livestock, and they should not suffer because of the decisions made by an overreaching federal government a thousand miles away.”

Dear Friends,

I hope you're having a wonderful Sunday.

I wanted to update you on a few things going on in Wisconsin and in Washington. Most notably, I have been selected as a Conferee on the House and Senate negotiations on this year's Farm Bill.

It is my priority to protect Wisconsin farmers and keep our agricultural tradition strong.

Take a look at some of the notes from the recent House and Senate conference meeting on the Farm Bill, from Brownfield Ag News America.

"Congressman Sean Duffy told the Farm Bill Conference Committee Wednesday Wisconsin has the best ginseng and the most cranberry production, but dairy is incredibly important in his state. 'Making sure that we have a risk management program in place that actually is beneficial to our farmers, that we’re increasing coverage and we’re allowing some of our smaller farmers to purchase that coverage I think is important.'"

They Say It Couldn't Be Done...But American Manufacturing Is Back

They said that American manufacturing was DONE! That companies no longer wanted to make products in America, and if they did, they wouldn't compete with companies in other countries. 

That's why this news is so exciting...

Our pro-growth policies have helped this economy to roar: tax cuts and smart regulations that allow companies to hire more workers and create and sell more products...right here in America!

As a result, American manufacturing has made a comeback! It has grown at its fastest pace in 14 years!

September 4, 2018

Dear Friends,

I hope you all had a great Labor Day Weekend. I wanted to take a moment to share some of exciting news happening both in the state of Wisconsin and in the national economy!


Celebrate Our Growing Economy

There's still a lot of work to do, but there's no question that our country is on a better track than it was just a few years ago. Our pro-growth policies have allowed you and your family keep more of your own hard-earned money. After all, it's yours, not Washington's! 

We've also made it easier for small businesses to hire more workers, raise their wages, or offer greater benefits because they're constrained by less Washington red tape.

And we're seeing the results in the growth of our economy. In fact, in the second quarter of this year, our nation's GDP growth was just revised UP to 4.2%!

They used to say that low growth was the "new normal," but we've proved them wrong.

Dear Friends,

I hope you're having a great week. Before the weekend starts off, I wanted to get you caught up on a few important things going on in both Wisconsin and in Washington.

Our Wisconsin Economy Continues To Grow

Great news for our growing Wisconsin economy: our unemployment rate has been below three percent for six. straight. months.

This is a big deal. Prior to last year, Wisconsin's unemployment rate had NEVER fallen below three percent. And now it has been below the mark for half a year.

Combatting The Opioid Crisis

The opioid crisis continues to devastate our families and our communities. Wisconsin has made major strides in combatting this crisis- including giving back more than 63,000 pounds of unused prescriptions in last May's Drug Take Back Day.

That was the third highest total in the nation- behind only California and Texas, and more than Minnesota, Michigan, and Iowa COMBINED.

Sadly, there is still much more work to do to defeat the scourge of opioids. I recently spoke with Charles Payne of Fox Business about the need to have an all-the-above approach to addressing the opioid crisis in America.

update for you

August 10, 2018

Dear Friends,

Happy Friday! Before the weekend kicks off, I wanted to send you a few important updates. Let's get to it!

Our Economy Continues To Grow

In order to help more Wisconsinites achieve the American Dream, I have worked tirelessly to promote pro-growth policies. This includes letting you keep more of your hard-earned money, cutting bureaucratic red tape, and promoting American energy dominance. Now, we have a booming job market in Wisconsin and around the nation.

According to the National Federation of Independent Business, small business job openings are at a record high. With more job openings than unemployed Americans, there is no better time to enter the workforce!

Dear Friends,


I hope you're all having a great week. There's a lot going on in DC and in Wisconsin, so let's get right to it!

Our Economy Continues To Grow

The positive news about our growing economy continues to pour in, and our pro-growth policies have led to a booming job market. Whether it is 6.7 million job openings (more than the number of unemployed Americans!) or 5 consecutive months of below 3% unemployment in Wisconsin, more people are working now than ever before!
 
I recently compiled a video of some of the best headlines about America’s job market. Be sure to show your friends the positive news by “Sharing” the video on Facebook HERE or clicking the video below.

 

 

 Support The Request For Federal Disaster Aid

Senator Ron Johnson and I recently wrote a letter to the Trump administration to fully support Governor Scott Walker's request for federal assistance in Northwestern Wisconsin. The aid request is in response to massive June flooding in Ashland, Bayfield, Burnett, Clark, Douglas, and Iron counties. FEMA’s Public Assistance Program would provide financial relief to these counties as they continue to recover from the widespread damage.

Thank A Local Cop

Our local police officers courageously wake up every day to protect and serve their communities. They deserve our thanks for all they do for keeping us safe.

Duffy & Johnson Support Gov Walker’s Request For Federal Disaster Aid For Northwestern Wisconsin

2018/07/24

Washington DC – Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, Chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing & Insurance, and Senator Ron Johnson today sent a letter to President Trump in support of Governor Scott Walker’s request for federal disaster aid for northwestern Wisconsin. The aid request is in response to massive June flooding in the area. Read the entire letter below.

 

“Mr. President:

 

“We respectfully request that you promptly consider the July 20, 2018 request from Gov. Scott Walker for a major disaster declaration in six Wisconsin counties. The request for federal assistance is to help Ashland, Bayfield, Burnett, Clark, Douglas and Iron counties recover from flooding in June.

 

“Beginning on June 16, heavy rains fell in northwestern Wisconsin, which caused record flooding in the region. Tragically, two Wisconsinites were killed in storm-related incidents. The flooding also caused significant damage to public infrastructure, as many roads and culverts were damaged if not completely washed out.

 

“We base our support of Governor Walker’s request on the damage assessment qualifications that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) uses to determine whether a severe weather event qualifies as a major disaster. The federal damage assessments revealed that the total cost of debris clearance, emergency protective measures, and damage to public infrastructure was in excess of $13.1 million. We believe that the severity of the localized damage caused by these storms and the impact they continue to have on the affected counties warrants the use of federal resources to facilitate recovery operations.

 

“We fully support Governor Walker’s request for federal assistance in this difficult time. FEMA’s Public Assistance Program will provide financial relief to these counties as they continue to recover from the widespread damage.”
