Signed Into Law
President Signs My Legislation Into Law
This week President Trump signed my resolution into law that restores important retirement protections that workers have counted on for decades. The resolution closes a regulatory loophole created by the Obama administration that would discourage small businesses from providing retirement benefits and put the hard-earned savings of workers at risk.
Commenorating National Police Week
It's National Police Week, a time to recognize the brave men and women who dedicate their lives to serve and protect our communities. I spoke on the House floor to honor the memory of Branch County Sheriff Posse Deputy Michael Winter, who lost his live in the line of duty. This week Deputy Winter's name was carved into the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC. He will not be forgotten.
Strengthening Retirement Security
As Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions, I held a hearing this week to examine regulatory barriers facing workers and families saving for retirement. We discussed the need to protect workers and small businesses from the flawed fiduciary rule, and we also discussed bipartisan solutions to make it easier for small businesses to provide retirement benefits to their employees.
Enhancing Career and Technical Education
Strengthening career and technical education programs will help more students gain the knowledge and skills they need to compete for in-demand jobs. This week the Education and the Workforce Committee unanimously approved legislation to modernize federal CTE policies and increase workforce development opportunities. The bipartisan bill now awaits consideration from the full House of Representatives.
