07/23/2020 Reps. Flores, Westerman, Gallagher, Hartzler, Gohmert, and Palmer Introduce Legislation to Empower Consumers to Know the True Cost of Their Health Care Services
07/22/2020 Tweet - "Democrats' #NoBanAct is not about policy, but undermining @POTUS. They planned to pass this bill in March, but pulled it as #COVID19 spread & travel restrictions ensued for safety reasons. This shows the bill's recklessness. It undermines any president's ability to keep us safe."
07/20/2020 Tweet - "The ACOG v. FDA decision makes dangerous abortion drugs available by mail without even obtaining a doctor's approval. AG Barr, HHS @SecAzar, @SteveFDA: please stand for women and babies by appealing this decision. #ProLife"
07/18/2020 Tweet - "I"m saddened by the passing of my friend & colleague John Lewis. He was a kind, gentle man who often reminded me that, though he represented the 5th district of GA, he was born & raised near Troy, AL. Ann & I will be praying for God's comfort and peace to cover his family."
07/10/2020 Letter to President Donald Trump - Steube Urges President Trump to Cap Unemployment Benefits and Incentivize Americans to Return to Workforce
07/09/2020 Tweet - "I'm thrilled #SCOTUS ruled yesterday, in a 7-2 decision, in favor of the #LittleSistersofthePoor, holding that the Sisters are exempt from the contraceptive mandate on religious grounds. This case is a huge win for religious liberty for all!"
07/02/2020 Tweet - "I'm proud to cosponsor @RepDustyJohnson 's Mt Rushmore Protection Act. There's a troubling campaign to erase America's history, & I'm committed fighting it. We can't deny our history or discredit our country's founders if we hope to keep improving it."
06/30/2020 Investing in A New Vision for the Environment and Surface Transportation in America Act
06/30/2020 Tweet - "After spending millions of taxpayer dollars, the Select Climate Committee is avoiding issuing a formal committee report about its findings. This should tell us something about their findings and the alleged crisis--they are not supported by sound science."
06/25/2020 Palmer Opposes Bill Undermining Law Enforcement
06/25/2020 Tweet - "Democrats said they wanted to work with Republicans on police reform, but today they passed a bill that was introduced with no Republican input. It would also make police departments ineffective at best & outright abolish them at worst."
06/22/2020 Letter to Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel - Reaffirming Support of U.S.-Israel Alliance
06/19/2020 Tweet - "This week's markup of Dems' #MyWayortheHighway bill showed a disappointing lack of bipartisanship. The bill was created w/ no Republican input & prioritizes far-left agendas like the Green New Deal, not our infrastructure."
06/17/2020 Tweet - "Democrats' #MyWayortheHighway bill has little to do with improving infrastructure & much to do with the Green New Deal & leftist agendas. Rebuilding infrastructure has an even more important role than usual as we work toward economic recovery. This is no time for partisanship."
06/11/2020 Palmer Introduces Bill to Protect 2020 FSA Funds
06/09/2020 Tweet - "Thanks to strong leadership & smart reopening efforts, the economy is on the road to recovery from #COVID19. The May Jobs Report surpassed expectations and proves that Americans at work are the best thing for the economy. Let's keep up the effort by continuing to #ReopenAmerica"
06/05/2020 Tweet - "I'm pleased POTUS has issued an EO that directs federal agencies to expedite the review of infrastructure projects that are critical to jumpstarting our economy in the wake of the #COVID19 pandemic."

06/01/2020 Tweet - "This weekend, we"ve seen many peaceful protests over the unjustified killings of #GeorgeFloyd, #BreonnaTaylor, & #AhmaudArbery. I, too, am outraged over these deaths & pray justice will be swift, with urgency to address underlying issues of distrust & suspicion that divide us."
05/28/2020 Tweet - "I've joined the lawsuit against Pelosi and her fellow Democrats to challenge their rule change to allow proxy voting. It's simple: You cannot represent your constituents on the House floor when you're not present to vote on their behalf."
05/28/2020 Palmer Joins Lawsuit Against Pelosi's Proxy Voting Scheme
05/26/2020 Tweet - "I'm pleased President @realDonaldTrump has highlighted the importance of faith communities during this difficult time for our country. Check out these new interim guidelines from @CDCgov on how churches can safely hold services while we navigate #COVID19."
05/20/2020 Tweet - "I'm pleased to see President @realDonaldTrump doing what he can to cut regulations as we restart the US economy. Innovation, competition, & hard work are critical to helping us through the current crisis, & we must remove barriers to them."
05/15/2020 Palmer Criticizes Democrat Effort for House Rules Change
05/15/2020 Tweet - "I voted against the inaptly named #HeroesAct today because in actuality, it is a left-wing wish list bill with a $3 trillion price tag. In other words, a serious national security threat."
