September 24, 2019 Press Release
During my time in Congress, I have been asked to start impeachment proceedings against Presidents Bush, Obama, and now Trump. I have consistently rejected these requests because each was a political effort to minimize the voice of the people. Elections have consequences and the voters' will deserves respect.
August 22, 2019 Press Release
To host the Vice President of the United States is a great honor for the state of Utah. After a decade of congressional service together with Vice President Pence, I am a first-hand witness of his tireless advocacy for America.
July 25, 2019 Press Release
In 1974, then Vice-President Gerald Ford addressed the graduating seniors of Utah State University. During those remarks, Ford said that, ‘truth is the glue that holds government together, and compromise the oil that makes government go.’ This budget deal is an example of compromise making government go. This deal will continue the crucial task of rebuilding our military after the deleterious years of the prior administration. Today’s move will only bear successful fruit if Democrats live up to their commitments.

While armed conflict must be an absolute last resort, should Iran fail to comply, it is critical that the U.S. stand ready to face any further provocative actions. With a recent Middle Eastern deployment of F-35s from Utah’s 388th & 419th Fighter Wings, it is heartening to know that should any need arise, there are Utahns ready to defend.

It is always heartening to get a reminder that Utah’s Hill Air Force Base is strong. We have always known that Hill’s active duty and civilian workforce is strong. Now we can take comfort knowing the Air Force acknowledges the resiliency and strength of the base itself. When compared to other bases around the world, Hill shines.

“This is a fitting tribute to the memory of a man whose life was lived in the service of others. Major Taylor deserves our praise for the life he lived. I hope that the example set by his commitment to education will forever stand for the students of Utah and the world. The University of Utah was made all the better by having had Brent walking its halls.”
April 18, 2019 Press Release
I am encouraged that we may now turn the page on this distracting chapter of US history. The office of the Attorney General and the Special Counsel have concluded that there was no collusion and no obstruction. I am satisfied with these conclusions and ready to move forward. I urge all my congressional colleagues to return their attention to legislating and serving our constituents.
