Praying for Mama Woodruff and her family during this difficult time.

Hello friends!
Due to the sudden change in the health of Mama, we have decided to close this week. At 104 years of age, she has lived a long and prosperous life and we are so grateful!
We would like to spend as much time with her as possible in what may be her final days.
Thank you for all of the love, prayers, support and kind words at this time.
We’ll see you soon!
Blessings.....
The Woodruff family

Back on the Books - Prevent Cancer Foundation

April is National Cancer Control Month, a time to bring attention to the importance of early detection and prevention. Many Americans delayed routine cancer screenings this past year, but now is the time to get those appointments #BackontheBooks.

Routine cancer screening detects cancer early and increases the likelihood your treatment will be successful. If your doctor’s office is open, give them a call today!

It’s been three weeks since Vice President Harris was appointed Border Czar, and while she has visited a bakery in Illinois, a water facility in California, and a yarn shop in Virginia, she has neglected to actually visit the border to see this worsening crisis firsthand.

The Blue Ridge Parkway stretches 469 miles throughout Virginia and North Carolina contributing $1.3 billion to local economies along the roadway and supporting 16,000 jobs.

Problem Solvers Caucus Urges Leadership to Return to Regular Order

With a majority of only six seats, Speaker Pelosi has been rushing bills to the Floor, bypassing committees, and preventing amendments. Read a letter my Problem Solvers Caucus colleagues and I recently sent to House Leadership urging a return to regular order.

The Problem Solvers Caucus urged Congressional leadership to return to regular order in the House, allowing for open debate on the House floor, committee hearings, and amendments. In a letter officially endorsed by the 58-Member bipartisan Caucus, including 29 Democrats and 29 Republicans, the group...

Just a friendly reminder that Tax Day has been moved by both the federal government and the Commonwealth of Virginia to May 17. Individual taxpayers can also delay payment of any money owed to the IRS until that date.

Rep. Cline Standing Up For Life

A baby born alive, even after an attempted abortion, should be afforded the same constitutional protections as every other American. Today, I joined my GOP colleagues in signing a discharge petition to force a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would guarantee medical care for babies that survive abortions. #EndInfanticide

Biden Details $1.52 Trillion Spending Proposal to Fund Discretionary Priorities

This Administration’s priorities are misguided.

The President's $1.52 trillion budget proposal mentions “climate” 146 times compared to only three references to “border security” – despite a 71% increase in attempted illegal crossings last month.

The blueprint includes increases in funding to address climate change, along with beefing up education, health research and the Internal Revenue Service.

Last month, U.S. Customs and Border Protection encountered 170,000+ migrants illegally crossing the border – a 400% INCREASE from March of 2020.

We Must:
✅ Finish building the wall along our southern border
✅ Provide CBP the resources necessary to do their jobs effectively
✅ End “Catch and Release”
✅ Reimplement “Stay in Mexico” order
✅ Reinstate asylum partnerships with our Central and South American allies

April is designated as the Month of the Military Child. We pay tribute and applaud military families and their children for the daily sacrifices they make and the challenges they overcome. Countless moves, new schools, a parent deployed, all demonstrate a resiliency to be commended. Thank you for all you and your families do to serve the call of freedom.

Rep. Cline Joins WFIR

Our country is at a crossroads facing challenges on several fronts. From the crisis at our border to the COVID-19 pandemic to out-of-control deficit spending, it is time for President Biden to reach across the aisle and work to find realistic solutions to the issues most concerning the American people. I joined WFIR this week to discuss a number of these matters with Roanoke's own Gene Marrano and Joey Self.

Biden announces commission to study expanding the Supreme Court

There’s nothing a commission will tell us that we don’t already know - packing the Supreme Court simply because one party doesn't like the current makeup is as reckless as it gets. This would set a wildly dangerous precedent and be detrimental to the American Justice System.

Biden promised to establish the commission throughout the 2020 election.

Biden targets 'ghost guns' and 'red flag' laws in new gun control measures

The Bill of Rights is not a list of ten suggestions. The Second Amendment must be protected.

President Biden’s Executive Orders will do nothing to actually curb gun violence and instead strip citizens of their ability to protect themselves and their families.

The president wants to curb the spread of homemade fi****ms that lack traceable serial numbers.

Biden’s $2.25 trillion “social justice” and “climate justice” initiative masquerading as an infrastructure plan will raise taxes, hurt the US economy, advance unrelated Democrat policies, and dramatically increase the size of the government.

Only 6% actually goes to roads and bridges.

Valley’s Pete Giesen has lived and taught politics for more than a half century

Pete Giesen was a giant in Virginia politics. Throughout his legislative career he was a fierce advocate for mental health issues and served as a role model to those who had the pleasure of knowing him. I was terribly saddened to hear of his passing, and Elizabeth and I offer our deepest sympathies to his family. His impact on our community was profound, and he will not soon be forgotten.

Pete Giesen has been an iconic figure in Shenandoah Valley politics for more than a half century.

U.S. Capitol Police officer dies after attacker rammed car into checkpoint; suspect also dead

It is with a heavy heart that I learned of the passing of Capitol Police Officer William "Billy" Evans during today’s attempt to breach the Capitol Building Complex. Those who protect the institution of Congress do so selflessly and provide security and safety to Members of Congress, their staff, and the community. Elizabeth and I offer our condolences to the deceased officer’s family and continue to pray for a second officer who was injured. We extend our thanks to the entire Capitol Police Force for their continued service to our Nation.

The fallen officer, William 'Billy' Evans, was an 18-year-veteran of the United States Capitol Police
