    Weekly Update: Letting Communities Compete By Rob Wittman March 16, 2018 Washington needs to change the way it does business, especially when it comes at the expense of our small businesses. Unnecessary regulations are continuing to strangle the American economy. Instead of protecting consumers, workers, and the environment, these regulations are increasing the power of government agencies and driving up the costs of compliance for Main Street. In fact, we have so many unchecked regulations, it ... Read more

    Weekly Update: The President's Budget By Rob Wittman February 24, 2018 Last week, President Trump released his budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2019. The President’s budget is only the first step in the annual budgeting and appropriations process. And I’m sure you know, the Administration’s FY19 proposal is simply that - a proposal. Any changes in actual funding levels requires Congressional approval. This budget proposal rightly prioritizes defense and national security. The proposal also aims t... Read more

    Weekly Update: A Story You Need to Hear By Rob Wittman February 10, 2018 It’s February, which means that it has been over a month since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has taken effect. Ninety percent of Americans are going to see more in their paychecks and over $3 billion in bonuses have gone out to American workers. Americans are seeing lower taxes, bigger bonuses, higher wages, and better investments in the future. Companies like ExxonMobil and Apple are putting more of their dollars back in the U... Read more

    Weekly Update: My Legislative Priorities for 2018 By Rob Wittman January 27, 2018 This year we are already off to an amazing start. Just one month into 2018, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is delivering. Over 2 million American workers have already seen the benefits of tax reform. Companies across the country have been announcing bonuses, pay raises, and investments, and I’m sure there will be more good news to come. As the legislative calendar starts to pick up, I want to make sure you know what my ... Read more

    Dear Friend- Just like, that we are at the end 2017. It’s been a historic year for our country. There have been highs and lows along the way. However, I am confident the American spirit remains unshaken. Our shared values of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness draw us together far more than any division may drive us apart. As this year comes to a close, I’ve looked back on all that the last twelve months had in store. I’ve traveled all across our district, talked with thousands of consti... Read more

    Weekly Update: Victory is Incomplete By Rob Wittman December 17, 2017 Victory is incomplete, but for now, we claim it. Just three years ago, in the middle of 2014, ISIS claimed to have established a caliphate—a religious state under an extreme interpretation of Islamic law. This self-proclaimed caliphate had reign over seven to eight million people and access to vast resources. However, in October, their self-proclaimed capital of Raqqa fell to U.S. backed Kurdish forces; followed shortly by Ira... Read more

  • A historic November for the House

    Hi Folks- This has been a historic month in Washington. I'm proud that the House passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and now Congress is well on its way to delivering tax reform for the first time in decades. This was our once in generation opportunity, and I believe tax reform is just what our economy, small-businesses, and working class families need. The House and Senate also passed The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report sending the NDAA to the President's desk. I belie... Read more

    Weekly Update: Give Thanks By Rob Wittman November 23, 2017 We have a tradition in my family on Thanksgiving. We all sit down at the table, and before we start eating the beautifully prepared feast, we go around and say what we are thankful for. Well this year, I wanted to do the same thing for work as I do for family; look back through 2017 to think about what I am most thankful for. As I reflected on this year, I thought about all that we have accomplished. From the outset of 2017, I made it a... Read more

    Weekly Update: One Step Closer to Tax Relief By Rob Wittman November 18, 2017 The House has done its part, and completed the first step towards keeping our promise to the Nation. Since America’s founding, the First District of Virginia, my home, has been a stronghold for hardworking men and women who work hard, raise their families, and help shape what we now consider the American Dream. Each day Congress is in session I commute from Washington back to Montross, Virginia, and I hear from people ... Read more
