Thursday July 5th

Agriculture

The First District of Kentucky is home to thousands of contributors to the agricultural industry. We must support and modernize programs that have proven effective in helping our nation's hard-working farmers to operate, compete and succeed.

Healthcare

As healthcare costs continue to skyrocket and choices diminish, it is clear our nation’s healthcare system is failing the American people. We must restore competition in the marketplace, expand access to high-quality care and end the one-size-fits-all approach taken in recent years.

Military Servicemembers and Veterans

The First District is the proud home of Fort Campbell, which has been repeatedly recognized as one of the best installations in the U.S. Army. We must never take for granted the sacrifice our servicemembers, military retirees, veterans and their families have made for this country.

Oversight and Government Reform

Congress must work towards reining in the amount of regulatory red tape enacted in recent years. Eliminating unnecessary government spending, fraud and abuse will help ensure the government is operating at maximum effectiveness and not unnecessarily interfering in the lives of citizens.

Second Amendment

Americans’ Second Amendment rights are an important tenet of the Constitution. As such, we must ensure that these rights continue to be protected from infringement by the federal government. Law-abiding gun owners deserve commonsense gun laws that respect the fundamental right to keep and bear arms.

Small Business and Economy

Unleashing economic growth begins with reducing taxes and reining in government regulations that make it more difficult for Americans to start businesses, compete globally and grow jobs here at home. We must continue to build on the success of the historic tax reform legislation and deregulation to help American families, businesses and entrepreneurs achieve their dreams.

Transportation

Investment in our nation's transportation infrastructure - whether that is our water systems, roads, highways, bridges, railroads or the maritime industry - is critical for economic growth and the well-being of our communities.
