On this Presidents’ Day, we recognize the leaders who have shaped our great nation.

In particular, we celebrate two of America’s greatest commanders-in-chief, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

Their love of country and dedication to public service continues to inspire us.

This is about Russia and the administration taking action.

We need to make certain that we avert what could be an international crisis.

I was concerned that it appeared that the administration was sleepwalking into an international crisis.

Today, I told Kristen Welker on NBC News’ Meet the Press that it looks like now, they're going to be able to take action.

As a former boxing champion, Kyiv’s Mayor Vitali Klitschko has the grit and determination to keep Ukraine’s capital working while his country defends itself against Russian aggression.

Great to speak at a panel today with Mayor Klitschko at the Munich Security Conference. 🇺🇸 🇺🇦

Dayton International Airport (DAY) is a significant contributor to our local economy, and I am pleased to have helped secure $2.9 million in federal funds for DAY.

In November, I wrote a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration expressing my support for Dayton International’s grant application to upgrade its passenger boarding bridge in Concourse B.

This grant will make certain that DAY can spearhead the development projects necessary to improve the passenger experience for everyone who travels through Dayton.

For more than twenty years, March Madness Men's Basketball has had its tip-off in Dayton, Ohio.

During this time, University of Dayton Arena, home of Dayton Flyers Basketball, has hosted the ‘First Four’ games of the NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament.

As Dayton’s congressman and former mayor, I offer my strong support for the University of Dayton’s application to continue that tradition.

I led a bipartisan congressional delegation to Kyiv, where we met with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy Володимир Зеленський, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Blank, and senior Ukrainian national security officials.

Congressman French Hill, Rep. Jason Crow, Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger, Congressman Zach Nunn, and I reiterated the United States’ commitment to support Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression.

Ukraine must be given the tools they need to defend their country, and the world’s democracies will continue to stand with them.

Last month, President Biden froze the approval process for new liquefied natural gas (LNG) export projects.

That’s why I joined over 150 of my colleagues in signing Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ letter urging the President to reverse his ban on American LNG exports, which undermines America’s crucial role as a global energy leader.

Energy security is national security.

FIRST ON FOX: A large coalition of House Republicans, including leadership, are calling on President Biden to reverse his actions pausing permits for natural gas exports.

President Biden and Department of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin have said that when American troops are attacked, they will respond. But they’ve tolerated over 160 attacks on U.S. troops and military personnel since October 17, 2023.

Today, House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Representative Jim Himes and I spoke with Margaret Brennan on Face The Nation about the Biden Administration’s response to the drone strike that killed three U.S. service members in Jordan.

The Biden Administration needs to put together a real plan that counters Iran and diminishes the capacities of their proxies, who have been attacking our men and women in uniform.

is a time to reflect and celebrate the many contributions that African Americans have made, and continue to make, to our country.

During this month and every other month, let us recognize the role that institutions like Wilberforce University, America’s first private historically black university, and Central State University play in enriching the Miami Valley.

Kirtland Air Force Base plays an essential role in deterring our adversaries as they continue to develop robust nuclear arsenals of their own.

Last week, I visited Kirtland for a tour of the nuclear storage, transport, and maintenance program as well as programs at Sandia National Laboratory.

It’s crucial that the men and women of Kirtland Air Force Base have the resources they need to continue their important mission.

Iran is becoming even more aggressive in its support for terrorist groups in the Middle East.

Today, I told Sumi Somaskanda on BBC News that Tehran needs to pay a price for the drone strike that killed three U.S. service members in Jordan.

These acts of instability that are occurring in the Middle East are all part of Iran’s efforts to undermine the United States and our allies.

The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards National Board Certification signifies professional teaching excellence based on rigorous standards developed by teachers.

That’s why I was proud to sign onto Congresswoman Julia Letlow’s resolution recognizing the important contributions of National Board Certified Teachers, of which Ohio has over 3,300.

Supporting Ohio’s tremendous teachers will remain one of my top priorities as I continue to represent the 10th District in the House of Representatives.

01/29/2024

Over the last few months, more than 150 attacks have occurred on U.S. troops in the Middle East.

Today, I told Neil Cavuto on Fox News that the Biden Administration needs to respond quickly and decisively to the Iranian-backed drone strike that killed three U.S. service members in Jordan.

Iran is not going to stop and its regime needs to feel consequences for this unacceptable attack.

I’m saddened to learn that three U.S. service members lost their lives and dozens more were wounded in a drone strike in Jordan.

The Biden Administration must take serious action against Iran and the terrorist groups that they’re funding to attack American troops and military bases.

This attack is a direct result of the administration’s failure to respond to previous attacks.

President Biden blamed "radical Iran-backed militant groups" after 3 U.S. service members were killed and 25 others were hurt in Jordan near the Syrian border.

On this Holocaust Remembrance Day, we honor and mourn the six million Jews who were systematically killed by the N**i regime during World War II.

Today serves as a powerful reminder that we must condemn and root out anti-Semitism wherever it appears.

I am saddened to learn of the passing of Mayor Warren Copeland, who was a dedicated public servant to the City of Springfield.

Mayor Copeland was a pillar of our community, demonstrating true leadership and an unwavering faith throughout his nearly 30 years as Mayor of Springfield.

He always looked for ways to serve the people of Springfield, as was evident in the passion he showed for teaching when he was a professor at Wittenberg University.

I would like to extend my sincere condolences to Warren’s family, and I encourage everyone in our community to keep the Copelands in your prayers.

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) — The city of Springfield announced the death of a former longtime mayor. On Monday, the city of Springfield released a statement saying Warren Copeland, the former S…

No one grieving the loss of a loved one should be forced to deal with additional tax liabilities from Washington.

I cosponsored Rep. Randy Feenstra’s Death Tax Repeal Act, bipartisan legislation that would permanently repeal the estate tax and generation-skipping transfer taxes.

Repealing the death tax would make certain that small businesses and family-owned farms are not punished by misguided federal tax laws.

It’s about time that the Biden Administration stopped playing defense and responded to the Houthis’ attacks in the Red Sea.

Today, I told Wolf Blitzer on CNN’s The Situation Room that President Biden needs to demonstrate that the Houthis will not be allowed to continue striking commercial ships and U.S. military vessels.

As the former Mayor of Dayton, I know how important it is to partner with local leaders to improve the lives of the families, workers, and small business owners that we represent.

It was a pleasure to have Mayor Jeffrey J. Mims, Jr. in Washington today to discuss how we can work together to secure critical funding for community development projects in Dayton, Ohio.

Sunday marked 100 days since Hamas’ brutal terrorist attacks against the Israeli people.

Congress remains unified in its commitment to stand with Israel, and we must make sure that extremist groups cannot continue perpetrating violence in the Middle East.

Hamas militants have fired thousands of rockets and sent dozens of fighters into Israeli towns near the Gaza Strip in an unprecedented surprise early morning attack during a major Jewish holiday.

The Biden Administration should have never removed the Houthis’ designation as a Foreign Terrorist Organization back in February 2021.

For weeks, the Houthis have been attacking American troops and cargo ships in the Red Sea.

Designating the Houthis as a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” only applies sanctions and avoids taking any real action. It’s time to lead and protect and call them what they are – a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

President Biden will redesignate the Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen as a terrorist group in response to recent attacks on shipping vessels in the Red Sea.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a historic leader in our nation’s Civil Rights movement.

Today, on MLK Day, I join along with the Dayton Region to celebrate Dr. King’s legacy and message of peace and equality.

His famous words of judging someone not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character is a lesson we should all strive to follow.

Supporting institutions like Central State University is critical to unlocking the full potential of the Miami Valley.

I helped Central State University, an exceptional HBCU in my district, secure a tax refund of over $11 million from the IRS through the Employee Retention Credit (ERC).

As Vice Chair of the Bipartisan Historically Black Colleges and Universities - HBCU Caucus in the House of Representatives, I know how vital institutions like CSU are to providing educational opportunities to our youth and spurring innovation in our communities.

I will continue to advocate for Ohio’s historically black colleges and universities in Congress.

Since 2000, opioid use disorder (OUD) has claimed the lives of over 500,000 Americans, demonstrating the need for further interventions in prevention and treatment.

That’s why Congresswoman Annie Kuster, Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick, Congressman David Trone, Congresswoman Lori Trahan, Congresswoman Carol Miller, and I led a letter to the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education - ACCME, the Association of American Medical Colleges, and the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine earlier this week encouraging them to increase clinical training with buprenorphine.

We applaud these partners in our fight against opioid abuse, but more can be done to provide students with the training to use medication-assisted treatment.

Together, we can ensure that future practitioners have the necessary experience to treat those suffering from OUD.

More than one month ago, I called on the Biden Administration to take decisive action against the Houthis, an Iranian-backed terrorist organization that is attacking commercial ships in the Red Sea.

President Biden finally took action in response to these attacks.

I look forward to seeing the assessment of what these attacks accomplished and the President’s plan to diminish the threats posed to American interests by Iranian-backed proxies.

The Houthis and other Iranian-backed terrorist organizations are attacking American military personnel and equipment overseas. The United States cannot let this go unanswered.

As the Houthis continue to target personnel and challenge the flow of commerce in the Middle East, it’s time for the Biden Administration to reverse its decision to not designate the Houthis as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

The Houthis, an Iran-backed proxy force, have been attacking commercial shipping in the Red Sea since soon after the Israel-Hamas war began.

The Dayton VA Medical Center is among the finest facilities for veterans’ services in the United States, and I am pleased that it is the home for the future museum and archives for VA history.

Today, Rep. Greg Landsman, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, Senator JD Vance and I introduced the Veterans Affairs Centennial and Heritage Act, bipartisan legislation that would codify the establishment of a National VA History Center (NVAHC), which is planned to be in Dayton.

This critical piece of legislation will preserve the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ history of outstanding work and document the special relationship between the United States and our veterans.

On this Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, I would like to thank our brave men and women in blue for their commitment to protecting our communities.

In the Miami Valley, we are incredibly grateful for our police officers and sheriffs who keep us and our families safe.

It’s unacceptable that Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin kept his medical crisis a secret from the White House and the public.

I told Mike Emanuel on FOX News Radio that whatever brought the Secretary of Defense to the ICU affects not only his performance but also his judgment and his availability.
