    The second week of the 115th Congress proved to be just as busy as the first one and I expect this pace and momentum to increase when President Trump is inaugured in a few days and we start to tackle the priorities of the American people and have a partner in the White House, instead of a roadblock. I’m very much looking forward to working with the new administration from day one. Below are a few items of note for this week.
    This past week we took part in many rituals that range from celebrations to frustration. It was a very exciting time to have the inaugural ball and the swearing in of our statewide officials. It was very impressive to have the capitol with special lighting, great sound equipment and special guest Sara Evans. One of the first questions is always how much state money went to pay for the celebration and the answer would be none. There are many sponsors for this event and I want to say thank you to all of the friends and family who came by my office throughout the day.
