Meet Mike Hirst
My Guest at the President's Joint Address
This week President Trump spoke to a joint session of Congress, and it was an honor to have Jackson resident and substance abuse prevention advocate, Mike Hirst, as my guest. Mike is the founder of Andy's Angels, a non-profit foundation which educates the community on opioid and heroin abuse and provides support for families and individuals suffering from addiction. Andy's Angels is named in memory of Mike's son, Andy, who died of a heroin overdose at the age of 24.

Regulatory Integrity Act Passes the House
The Regulatory Integrity Act, my bipartisan bill to provide greater transparency to the federal government's rulemaking process, passed the House this week. It requires federal agencies to post, in a central location, all communications they issue during the proposed rule stage so that the public can fully participate and trust that the rulemaking process is neutral and unbiased.

Small Business Health Fairness Act
The Education and the Workforce Committee held a hearing this week to examine legislative proposals to improve health care coverage and lower costs for working families. One of the key bills we discussed was the Small Business Health Fairness Act, which is my bill that will empower small businesses to provide employees better health care at lower costs.
