  • "Instead of letting Senator Tim Scott's bill come to the floor to be debated and amended, the vast majority of the Democrats in the Senate have voted to keep this bill from coming to the floor for debate. Unfortunately, they believe that passing this legislation will take the issue off the table for the November election," said Congressman Rouzer.

The passage of WRDA is critical to Southeastern North Carolina and our nation, and I look forward to the President signing this very important infrastructure bill into law." (votesmart.org)
  • " 'A Better Way for Tax Reform' makes it easier for taxpayers to file their taxes, lowers taxes on small businesses of all types -- including the vast number that file individual tax returns, lowers our corporate tax rate so that companies are incentivized to bring jobs back to America, and reforms the IRS so that the agency works for the American people."
