Trade agreements reduce trade barriers, which promotes economic growth and cooperative relationships between nations. Because 95 percent of consumers reside outside U.S. borders, we must constantly be looking for ways to increase access to foreign markets and ensure America’s competitiveness in an increasingly global marketplace.

The future of our country depends on the development of young leaders who are willing to step up, take a risk, and make a better life for themselves and their community.  In Congress, and especially through my role on the Ways and Means Committee, I want to create new opportunity and attract greater investment in our state for today’s and tomorrow’s generation of families, business leaders, and entrepreneurs.  From expanding access to more markets for our exporters to removing burdensome taxes and regulations, we can encourage new ideas and innovation to grow the economy for everyone.
