Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.
Happy Passover and a Blessed Easter. Enjoy this time to celebrate with your families and loved ones.
This week, I joined “The Evening Edit” on Fox Business to discuss inflation and OPEC’s decision to cut oil production. The Biden Administration is responsible for the inflation we're experiencing and rising energy costs. The actions from this White House are too little, too late. It’s time to unleash American energy production. Click here to watch my interview.
One of the ways to get our domestic economy back on track is to re-shore and help keep manufacturing in the United States, particularly in Pennsylvania. Good-paying manufacturing jobs are essential to industries in the 9th District, which is why I recently introduced the USA Batteries Act. This bill will protect American jobs by eliminating a tax that gives foreign manufacturers an unfair advantage. Click here to learn more.
In addition to the USA Batteries Act, I recently introduced two bills aimed at expanding air travel in middle America, while simultaneously reducing congestion at major airports. It's my hope these bills will help restore commercial flights at regional airports like the Williamsport Regional Airport.
This week, I had the opportunity to join the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce for their Legislative Breakfast. I was joined by State Senator Lisa Baker, State Representative Tina Pickett, and members of the State and Wyoming County chambers. In Washington, I’ll continue to fight for policies in Congress that help our business community thrive and oppose burdensome regulations and taxes that hinder their success.
An essential component of having a healthy economy is having a well-trained workforce. This week, I traveled to two separate learning institutions that are working to prepare our students for the jobs of today and tomorrow. First, I visited the Blue Mountain School District. They have been regularly bringing together local business and education leaders to discuss how curriculum can be tailored to ensure we are best-preparing students to enter the workforce.
I also visited the Lackawanna College Tunkhannock Center for a roundtable discussion with Lackawanna College President Dr. Jill Murray. Lackawanna College is about taking care of business today with education, increasing skill development and the understanding of natural resources and the opportunities that come with them.
