Michigan Values

The traditional values exemplified by the hardworking people of Michigan are the same principles America was founded upon. As your representative, I will adamantly support legislative initiatives that preserve America’s founding principles and protect the rights of the unborn.

As Congress works towards addressing our nation’s challenges, we must return our nation to its constitutional foundation of limited government that serves as the source of America’s greatness. Congress must honor its constitutional commitment to freedom and recommit itself to the principles of federalism outlined in the 10th amendment.

One of the most important freedoms outlined in our Constitution is the Second Amendment. Millions of Americans responsibly enjoy the use of firearms for recreational hunting, collection, and protection. Along with many people in the 7th District, I support the right for law abiding citizens to bear arms and will continue to defend this liberty throughout my service in Congress.

In addition, our country was founded on the principles of religious freedom and it has a strong tradition of defending the rights of conscience. To ensure our country continues to respect deeply held religious and moral beliefs, I am a cosponsor of H.R. 2014, the Conscience Protection Act.

Moreover, I hold the sanctity of life in the highest regard and will continue to work diligently and support legislation that protects the rights of the unborn. For this reason, in January 2019, I voted in support of H.R. 20, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and the Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2019. 

Lastly, society has a responsibility to protect the most vulnerable citizens: children.  In the 113th Congress, I introduced H.R. 3081, to help the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) provide technical assistance to law enforcement agencies to identify, locate, and recover victims of child sex trafficking. H.R.3081 was signed into law as part of H.R. 3092, E. Clay Shaw, Jr. Missing Children’s Assistance Reauthorization Act. In May 2017, the House passed the Improving Support for Missing and Exploited Children Act, to further strengthen efforts to recover missing children and support youth who are the victims of violent crimes. The bill was signed into law by President Trump on October 11, 2018.
