Today, President Trump issued his first State of the Union Address before Congress, where he highlighted the past year's achievements, including successful passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, significant regulatory reform, and a thriving economy that currently enjoys a 17-year low in unemployment and a 17-year high in consumer confidence. The President also discussed his policy agenda moving forward. Rep. Rob Woodall (GA 07) issued the following statement in response.
"The past year has been one of action in Washington and across the country, and while there is still much to do, we've accomplished a great deal to this point," said Rep. Woodall. "From implementing the first significant tax reform since Ronald Reagan was in the White House, to drastic reductions in the federal regulatory registry, to the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, and so much more, the President has indeed partnered with Congress to deliver on the promises that were made to the American people. I'm proud of what we've achieved together, and I'm eager to continue working on the challenges that remain."
"I'm grateful that the President took the opportunity to also cast a forward-looking vision that calls for bipartisan action on immigration reform and border security, an investment in a 21st century infrastructure system that ensures the safety and competitiveness of the American people, and a continued commitment to those in our military. By prioritizing the safety and strength of our great country, I'm confident -- irrespective of any differences we may have -- that America's best days are absolutely still ahead."
Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process, as well as serving on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and Budget Committee.
