Most Americans remember exactly where they were on September 11, 2001 when they heard the news about the horrible terrorist attacks. Earlier this week we marked the 18th anniversary of a day that changed our nation forever. We will always remember the thousands of lives tragically lost and the first responders who risked their lives to save others.
Back to Work: USMCA
After a productive district work period in August, we are back to work in Washington DC. One of my top priorities is passing the United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA), which will keep our economy booming! The USMCA will:
- Create 176,000 new jobs
- Add $68 billion in growth to the United States economy
- Boost US exports to Mexico by $19.1 billion and to Canada by $14.2 billion
American workers, farmers, and businesses cannot compete in the 21st century economy without 21st century trade agreements. We need to level the playing field and pass the USMCA now!

Improving Health Care Outcomes
It was great to join South Carolina's MUSC, Siemens Healthineers, and Medtronic for their value-based health care briefing on Capitol Hill this week. We had a productive discussion about strategies to improve health care experiences and outcomes while also reducing costs for patients. There are many barriers to quality health care access, especially in rural areas of South Carolina. I will continue working to find ways to break down these barriers so that all South Carolinians have access to affordable health care options.
SC07 Job Creators in DC
It was great to meet with various lumber manufacturers from South Carolina while they were in Washington this week! We discussed trade, regulatory reform, and other policies that will help these job creators continue to thrive and create opportunities for South Carolinians. I was also able to join them for an evening tour of the United States Capitol!
