    WASHINGTON – Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-01) released this statement following the passage of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). Although the measure passed by voice vote, if a roll call was requested, he would have voted in favor. “We are in both a public health crisis and an economic crisis. Congress needed to act – swiftly and decisively. I am proud to support the CARES Act because it does what is necessary to stabilize our economy, protect American families, ... Read more

    Friend– Looking back on the month of November, I had so many great opportunities to visit with our nation’s heroes throughout Virginia’s First District in celebration of Veterans Day. Our area is home to one of the highest concentration of veterans in the country, and I am honored each chance I get to meet with them and each day I represent them in Congress. In addition to my visits with veterans, I also hosted a Senior Resources Fair in Fredericksburg, had visitors from King George High School... Read more

    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 2019 to think about what I am most thankful for. As I reflected on this year, I thought about all that we have accomplished and all that still can be done. From the outset of 2019, I made it a priority to work on the iss... Read more

    Here in the First District we have both rural and suburban areas - each have their own unique challenges. Suburban areas across the country are expanding. Studies show that most all of the population growth in our top 50 metropolitan areas comes directly from growth in the suburbs and it is critical that Congress respond to their issues. That is why this week I joined with my colleagues to restart the Suburban Caucus - to fight for these suburban families. Our new Caucus will address the challen... Read more

    Friend – What a busy month we’ve had across Virginia’s First District. Throughout all of September, I spent a great deal of time hearing from folks across our region about the issues that matter most to them and in Washington advocating on your behalf to my colleagues in Congress. I started off the month hosting my second Community Broadband Field Seminar in Lancaster, held the inaugural meeting of the First District Career and Technical Education (CTE) Task Force, and visited the great folks at...

    Friend – Another month has come and gone across the Commonwealth. I hope your August was restful and I hope you took time out this month to enjoy the great outdoors with family and friends.

    Our current immigration system is broken, and we need strong, serious changes to our current laws. We are a nation of laws and we must continue to keep Americans safe, and although America is also a nation of immigrants, those wishing to enter the country need to come here legally. To keep America strong and prosperous, we need an immigration system that works for the American people. Our approach to combating illegal immigration must be comprehensive and include permanently securing our border,... Read more

    The American economy is stronger now than it has been in decades. Since January 2017, the U.S. economy has created 5.6 million jobs. In fact, 224,000 jobs were created in June alone. The unemployment rate has hit a 50-year low. We are seeing historic levels of small business optimism, record numbers of job openings, increased business investment, and higher wages. It is critical that we protect our job creators on Main Street. Small businesses are everywhere – more than half of Americans either ... Read more
