Dear Friend, These last couple of weeks in Washington have been a whirlwind of activity, most of it bad for American families, businesses and taxpayers. Last week we told you about the massive spending bill Democrats approved on a largely party-line vote. That budget-busting, $1.9 trillion package was fast-tracked through the House with little debate, and under strict procedures that did not allow for consideration of any Republican amendments – including one I filed to try and re-instate the Keystone XL Pipeline. Just 9 percent of this bloated Washington goodie-bag was set aside for pandemic related health care needs – yet it contained hundreds of billions of dollars to bailout big spending states like Illinois, more than a billion dollars for Amtrak, millions more for museums and taxpayer subsidized art – and even earmarks for a bridge in New York and a subway tunnel in San Francisco. It also contained a number of policy riders that have nothing to do with COVID, such as a massive minimum wage hike that will hammer employers already struggling under the weight of government lockdowns. I am opposed to this legislation and shared my concerns in a letter to our Senators this week now that the ball is in their court. You can read that letter here.

Dear Friend, This week, the House of Representatives reconvened to consider several far-reaching bills that unfortunately continue to undermine America’s economic well-being, erode many of our fundamental rights and institutions, and once again the interests of federal bureaucrats ahead of the working families across the country that pay their salaries.

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Reps. Tom Tiffany (WI-07) and Scott Perry (PA-10) introduced legislation calling for the U.S. to resume formal diplomatic relations with Taiwan and end the outdated and counter-productive “One China Policy.” The bill (H. Con. Res. 21) also directs the Biden administration to support Taiwan’s membership in international organizations, and to initiate negotiations with Taipei on crafting a U.S.-Taiwan Free Trade Agreement.

The House of Representatives did not convene for legislative activity this week, so I spent time holding several well-attended listening sessions across the district to hear what folks had to say. More on that later. I also received my subcommittee assignments on the House Natural Resources and Judiciary Committees, specialized panels that focus on specific areas of public policy within the larger framework of the full committees.

MINOCQUA, WI – Sportsmen and farmers notched another legal victory today when an appeals court rejected a desperate, last-ditch attempt by the Evers administration to subvert the state law authorizing a wolf hunting season. It was the second consecutive legal defeat in as many weeks for liberal special interest groups, and another win for those seeking local control over wildlife conservation and management.

This week Democrats in both chambers moved quickly to give preliminary approval to a $1.9 trillion budget-busting spending package. Even more alarming, the special parliamentary mechanism used to fast-track this expensive bill may also be used to attach a sprawling list of outside-the-mainstream proposals wholly unrelated to pandemic relief – including amnesty for illegal immigrants and a job-killing plan to more than double the minimum wage even as many small businesses are reeling from lockdowns. This process is called “budget reconciliation,” and it allows the majority party to sidestep the filibuster rule to pass budget-related legislation with just 50 votes in the U.S. Senate (rather than the normally required 60). Using this process for non-budget related legislation would be unprecedented, and according to analysts, “would shatter conventional understandings of the budget reconciliation process.” You can read more about that here.
