Celebrating National Agriculture Week     

This week is National Agriculture Week, and I met with the Michigan Farm Bureau to discuss ag issues and the upcoming Farm Bill. Agriculture is a key component of Michigan’s economy, supporting more than 900,000 jobs and contributing more than $100 billion annually to the state’s economy. Please join me in thanking Michigan farmers and producers for all they contribute to our local economy and community.

Expanding Affordable Health Care Options

I chaired an Education and the Workforce subcommittee hearing this week on association health plans, or AHPs, and how we can make affordable health care options a reality for more working Americans. Empowering small businesses to band together will help strengthen their negotiating power, expand coverage options, and lower costs for workers. Click here for my remarks at the hearing.

Combating the Opioid Crisis

I continued to press for bipartisan solutions to combat the opioid epidemic during a two-day hearing with the Energy and Commerce Committee this week. The hearing examined 25 bipartisan prevention and public health solutions to address the crisis, including my bill, Jessie’s Law, which I introduced along with Congresswoman Debbie Dingell. Click here to watch my questions at the hearing.

Coffee Hours Around the District

Tim Walberg Dexter Coffee Hour

I recently held coffee hours in Dexter, Brooklyn, Monroe, and Blackman Charter Township to discuss the new tax cut law, answer questions, and listen to what issues are on people's minds. Thank you to everyone who joined us, and I look forward to continuing to hear from you as I travel the district.
