BREAKING: Tonight, the House overwhelmingly passed a bipartisan package of legislation, including 3 of my bills, to strengthen capital formation, improve opportunities for Main Street investors, and boost small business job creation. I am happy to report the JOBS and Investor Confidence Act passed the House by a vote of 406 to 4! Earlier today I spoke about the importance of this legislation and how it will help small businesses in West Michigan and hardworking Americans across the nation.
Russia is not a friend, they are a foe.

It was wonderful to attend the unveiling of the new Betty Ford statue at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum. It was very moving to hear how Betty overcame her own struggles and then went on to help so many overcome their challenges. If you haven’t been to the museum recently it is a great showcase of how both President Ford and Betty Ford led by example. I encourage you to visit this incredible resource right here in West Michigan.
It was an honor to participate in the ceremony to commemorate the life and legacy of President Gerald R. Ford this morning at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum. Today would have been President Ford’s 105th Birthday. Thank you President Ford for your leadership and for sharing the very best that West Michigan has to offer.
