National Security

In today’s global economy, maintaining strong relationships with foreign nations is essential to our national economy and security.  Our foreign policy must work to increase trade, promote economic growth, and advance democratic principles while protecting the health, safety, labor, and environmental rights of all nations.

I am proud to serve on the House Committee on Oversight and Reform and its National Security Subcommittee. Through this committee, I will work with my colleagues to advance the interests of the United States.

Protecting the hard-working men and women who serve on the front lines of America’s foreign policy and defense efforts is a responsibility I take seriously.  America’s global standing and security directly affect every one of us. I’m committed to ensuring that our military and diplomatic servants have the best resources available to enhance America’s relationships with our international partners in order to successfully defend our nation’s core values, and promote the rights of people across the world.

For more information concerning my work and views on National Security issues, please contact me.
