Strengthening Protections for Pregnant Women   

This week I joined with Congresswoman Kristi Noem to introduce the Pregnancy Discrimination Amendment Act, which will promote workplace flexibility and strengthen protections for pregnant women. The bill amends a 1978 law to ensure that expecting moms have access to reasonable accommodations from their employers if health issues arise from pregnancy. Click here to learn more.

University of Michigan Congressional Breakfast

I enjoyed giving the keynote speech this week at the University of Michigan's Congressional Breakfast. During the speech, I touched on my work on the Energy and Commerce Committee to spur technological innovation, as well as some of the cutting-edge research being done at Michigan on mobility, autonomous vehicles, and more. 

What Tax Reform Means to Michigan

As I travel around the 7th District, optimism about the new tax cuts is hard to miss. I have heard from a number of workers excited about their bonuses and pay raises and from businesses that are looking to expand their operations. I joined with my Michigan colleagues this week to share some of these stories.

Coffee Hours Across the District

Tim Walberg Manchester Coffee Hour

This week I held coffee hours in Manchester and Eaton Rapids 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.

Promoting Rural Broadband and Wireless Development

This week I supported the RAY BAUM’s Act to strengthen our nation’s telecommunications infrastructure and spur the deployment of next-generation wireless services. The bipartisan bill will help foster innovation and close the digital divide so that more people in rural communities can have reliable internet access. Click here to watch my remarks on the House floor.
