I’ll always advocate for policies that create jobs, strengthen small businesses, and that helps individuals achieve economic prosperity so they can live their version of the American Dream. Some of this work includes:
- Voting for H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Cost Act to empower American energy producers to expand their businesses and create massive amounts of reliable and affordable energy. This will lower costs for employers and families across the board, allowing for the expansion of businesses and creation of new jobs in our economy.
- Cosponsoring the REINS Act, legislation that would deliver a blow to the administrative state by restoring Congressional authority in the federal regulatory process. The Biden Administration specializes in creating job-killing regulations, and the REINS Act ensures that Congress will provide a meaningful check on their power going forward.
- To expand access to banking in our rural and urban communities, I authored and introduced the Promoting Access to Capital in Underserved Communities Act of 2023, which will incentivize new bank formation in rural and underbanked communities.
- I’ll continue to fight to maintain the Trump-era tax cuts I voted for that propelled our economy to the best jobs’ numbers in history and rising wages for the middle-class. These tax cuts doubled the standard deduction, expanded the child tax credit, and delivered a $2,051 tax cut for the average family of four in Kentucky’s Sixth District.
