The Witch Hunt Continues
 

When Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced an impeachment inquiry against President Trump it became abundantly evident that Democrats are gearing up for a busy upcoming year and will stop at nothing in their goal to defeat President Trump. 

Pelosi and her cronies have been waiting for this day since the moment President Trump was sworn into office. Because they're so eager to grasp at straws, they announced the inquiry before they had even seen the transcript. After reading the transcript of President Trump's phone call myself, it became very clear that President Trump has nothing to hide. This newest inquiry is nothing more than a continuation of the liberal witch hunt against him. 

Since becoming the majority in the House the Democrats have chosen to pass no legislation of substance to benefit or help the American people. They have instead chosen to pursue a baseless impeachment inquiry. The focus of our Congress should be on securing our border, rebuilding our military, and passing the USMCA through Congress among many other things. I’m focused on delivering on promises made to you instead of wasting taxpayer dollars on partisan attacks against our President. 

Bonnet Carre Spillway Update
The Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross approved Governor Phil Bryant's request for a federal fishery disaster declaration for Mississippi following the devastation caused by the opening of the Bonnet Carre Spillway. 

This announcement means that our south Mississippi oystermen, fishermen, and shrimpers will get the much needed relief they deserve. This is also a very important step forward in restoring a healthy economy and strong seafood industry in south Mississippi. 
Our way of life on the Mississippi Gulf Coast has been devastated because of the spillway's opening and we are still working to fully assess the economic impact this has had on our economy. 

As we continue monitoring the health of the Mississippi Sound, I will be working to ensure we do not have a repeat of this disaster in the future. 

Also in Washington, I welcomed Mississippi Department of Marine Resources Executive Director Joe Spraggins to Capitol Hill before he testified in front of the Senate Commerce Committee on the importance of reforming the federal fisheries disaster declaration process. I am glad he could testify on such an important topic.
