    McMorris Rodgers on Sexual Harassment

    Today I voted in favor of requiring all Members, officers and staff to complete mandatory anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training each session. The reports of sexual harassment are deeply troubling and that kind of behavior is unacceptable. I'm glad the House is taking steps to make sure our work place is safe and secure for everyone.

    VA Failure to Report Poor-Performing Doctors

    Our veterans were willing to put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms - now its our turn to give them the care they deserve. This is why I've introduced legislation that requires VA medical staff to report directly to state licensing boards when they witness unethical or unacceptable behavior.

    Passage of Historic Tax Reform Bill

    Yesterday was a historic day in the U.S. House of Representatives. For the first time in 31 years, we passed legislation that fundamentally reforms our tax code and provides real relief to hard working Americans. I was honored to cast my vote for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which simplifies our broken tax code, provides immediate tax relief for families and small businesses and will bring jobs back to America.

    These middle class tax cuts will help Eastern Washington small businesses hire more people, help family farms grow, and put more money in the pockets of hard working Americans.

    Yesterday the House passed my bill that addresses the lengthy and expensive relicensing process for hydropower. In Washington, about 70% of our energy comes from hydropower. By streamlining the process we can encourage the continued use and expansion of clean, affordable, and renewable energy.

    Dr. Robert Maudlin on Teaching Health Centers

    My proposal for funding for the Spokane Teaching Health Clinic passed the House last week. We also adopted five-year funding for the vital Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). It's a good time to listen to Dr. Robert Maudlin discuss the importance of the teaching health centers around the country.

    I spoke with Neil Cavuto about our tax relief proposal that is aimed at boosting the economy, creating new jobs and bringing tax relief to hard-working families. Everyone should have the opportunity to realize their full potential and pursue their version of the American dream, and that begins with reforming the broken tax code.
