    A few weeks ago, I met a young woman named Sarah. She was smiling, and it was the smile of a student who just solidified her future, her success. She just completed a career and technical education program in manufacturing technology. She is already far on her way to achieving her dream of becoming a manufacturing engineer, even before receiving her high school diploma. Not all careers start with a bachelor’s degree—some begin before students have even started high school. Credential and two-yea... Read more

    I was pleased to see so many of you enjoying time with family and friends on Independence Day in America’s First District. The holiday weekend is always a popular one for traveling, and I know that many folks were watching the miles tick upward on their odometers and thinking of the cost of gasoline. That cost has been on my mind as well, and I recently voted for legislation to help cut the cost of fuel for Americans by boosting domestic energy production. H.R. 4899, the Lowering Gasoline Prices... Read more
