Dec 4, 2023 Press Release

As prepared for delivery:

Good afternoon.

Our adversaries are evolving their methods and shifting their targets. Gone are the days when direct attacks and military strength were the only things to be feared. A new frontier of aggression is here—and it’s one that seeks to subvert our systems and control America through our greatest asset: our people.

Good afternoon. It’s good to be with you again this week.

Our constituents expect us to deliver results and make government more efficient and effective. This direction toward accountability and transparency is part of the House Republican Commitment to America—and we are unyielding in our pursuit.
