    I Want to Solve the Problem

    "I think of my daughters and wonder what kind of culture they're inheriting. This type of behavior is beneath us and not who we are. No longer should your taxpayer dollars go to cover up inappropriate behavior by members."

    Last year, in the wake of the #MeToo movement, I thought of my daughters and made a vow to make changes in Congress.

    I'm proud to say that yesterday the House passed landmark legislation to create new protections for House employees and stop elected officials from using taxpayer dollars to pay settlements.

    The Inspiring Gerber Baby 2018

    "[Lucas] has the potential to change the world, just like everybody else."

    Kudos to Gerber for an inspiring 2018 Gerber baby selection!

    Children like Lucas, and my son Cole, are exactly why I fought to expand ABLE provisions in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act -- to empower anyone with disabilities to live their dreams and find success, regardless of the challenges they may face.

    Congratulations, Lucas, Cortney and Jason.

    Phil Tyler, former President of NAACP Spokane, talks about Cathy McMorris Rodgers' help and compassion after the MLK Center was hit with hateful graffiti. We must all agree that America is not a race, but an idea and that everyone in America deserves respect and a chance at the American dream.

    National Issues Affecting the INW

    While home in Spokane last week I visited KREM 2 News and discussed the new 24/7 Urgent Care at the Spokane VA Medical Center, my work to expand teaching residencies there, and the higher paycheck you'll see in February thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

    Hydropower Generating State

    Thanks to Kris Johnson and The Spokesman-Review!

    Hydropower provides more than 40% of Eastern WA's energy — that's why I introduced HR 3144. It would keep our dams from being torn down, protect jobs and vital agriculture, while also helping salmon and fish habitats. It's a win-win-win.

    Ending the Government Shut Down

    Thank you to the Senate for re-opening the government. It was the right decision for children and our military. Let's move forward in 2018 with real conversations instead of political games.
