More on Rural Development
There is no place like Nebraska, and my family has been fortunate to call it home for six generations. The experience of living in a rural area is something not found anywhere else. The wide open spaces, unmatched work ethic, and life-long friendships make our small towns unique. This isn’t to say we do not face struggles living in a rural area. My goal since coming to Congress is to provide solutions to these challenges and strengthen rural America for the future.

Access to quality healthcare is among the most important issues facing the country today, especially for aging Americans. In rural areas, such as Nebraska’s Third District, this is even more true. Nearly 50 million Americans, or one in seven, rely on Medicare for their healthcare needs in retirement or when disabled. The House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health, of which I am a member, is responsible for writing the policies which govern Medicare and ensuring it meets patients’ needs.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Terri Sewell (D-AL) and Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE), senior members of the House Ways and Means Committee and representatives of rural congressional districts, introduced two bills to improve rural access to healthcare this week.
