Representing the 1st District of Alabama

Coastal Issues

From flood insurance to Red Snapper to the RESTORE Act, I have made it a priority to advocate on behalf of Coastal Alabamians. As a member of the Coastal Communities Caucus, I have continually fought for Alabama's coastal economy. In fact, I introduced H.R. 981, the Red Snapper Regulatory Refrom Act. This commonsense bill would repeal inflexible quotas and empower the Gulf States.

Last week, I was honored to host some of our local mayors, city councilmembers, and city officials from Southwest Alabama in Washington to hear about what they do every day for our communities.

I am a firm believer that the best people to run our towns and our communities are not the bureaucrats in Washington or the federal government. The best people to do that are the people who live, work, and play in the same place as their neighbors they represent. That is why I come home to Southwest Alabama every weekend, to be in touch with the people I serve in Washington.

With 2018 behind us, it is time to start looking at what you can expect from Washington in 2019. Under Republican leadership, we in Congress aimed to make America better off, and thanks to our many victories through conservative policies, we accomplished that goal.

Under Democrat control, there is no telling what craziness will come out of the House of Representatives.
