Giving to charity is crucial for economic prosperity, happiness, and the success of our people. But for too long, only the upper class has been incentivized to give to charitable organizations. With the Universal Charitable Giving Act we help support the great work of the faith-based and charitable groups working hard to make a difference in our community.
I have always valued the importance of HBCUs. With more than 100 HBCUs across the nation – and eleven here in North Carolina, they are an integral part of our higher education system. On a more personal note, my wife, Kelly, is a graduate of Winston-Salem State University and has found success as a nurse practitioner, which she attributes in part to the strong education she received. I believe it is as important as ever to have Republicans engage with HBCUs.
Congress has passed laws that provide resources to confront this epidemic, but as we learned in our Opioid Crisis Tour throughout North Carolina, more action is clearly needed. We will remain committed to working with local law enforcement, first responders, and local government to stop the overwhelming hardship this is causing to the families of our community.
The House passed the Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment (SUPPORT) for Patients and Communities Act, a bipartisan bill that will help in our overall efforts to combat the opioid crisis by advancing treatment and recovery initiatives, improving prevention, protecting our communities, and bolstering our efforts to fight deadly illicit synthetic drugs like fentanyl.
The House passes the farm bill to authorize federal agriculture, conservation, and nutrition programs under the Department of Agriculture until 2023, make critical reforms to encourage work for benefits, and provide access to job-training programs.
The House fails to pass the Walker-cosponsored 'Securing America's Future Act' in a 193-231 vote.
