First 100 Days – Rules and Regulations Report
This week, my office released a report titled "First 100 Days: Rules, Regulations, and Executive Orders to Examine, Revoke, and Issue." You can read the full edition, cover to cover, on my website.
This report contains over 200 regulations -- many of which were enacted under the Obama Administration -- that have been devastating for working Americans. We are presenting this report to President-elect Trump and will work with his administration to roll these regulations back within the first 100 days of his term.
When the American people spoke on November 8, they provided conservatives with an opportunity to restore order in our government and to remove the out-of-control bureaucratic red tape that so often stunts the growth of otherwise successful Americans. My colleagues and I look forward to helping President-elect Trump in any way we can as we work toward the most productive ‘first 100 days’ in modern history.

Interview with CNN
This week I joined CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello to promote and discuss our "First 100 Days" rules and regulations report that we’re recommending to the Trump administration. It's time we get our government off the backs of hard-working Americans and allow them to reach their full potential without the weight of crushing bureaucracy.

Joining the new Second Amendment Caucus
This week I was proud to become an inaugural member of the new Second Amendment Caucus, led by my friend Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY).
Our goal will be to take a leadership role in advancing policies that protect Americans against infringement of the Second Amendment -- one of the most fundamental liberties in our country.

Speaking of the Second Amendment, I’m reminded of getting my concealed carry permit in NC from my friend Deputy Sheriff Tony Carver!
Joint Interview with Rep. Jim Jordan
I had a great opportunity this week to interview on CNN with my friend and former House Freedom Caucus Chairman, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH). Rep. Jordan is an outstanding conservative who fights vigorously for conservative values every day. We were able to promote the mission of the House Freedom Caucus and our ideas to get our economy working again.
The responsibility of Congress is simple -- actually do what people sent us here to do. Let's get to work.

Campaign Finance Reform Bill with Senator Ted Cruz
In case you missed it, my friend Senator Ted Cruz and I have introduced a bill to reform campaign finance laws and put Main Street Americans on a level playing field with Washington bureaucrats. This is a critical issue, and our bill would play a key role in reaffirming the principle of free speech in our political system. To learn more about the bill, I encourage you to read this article from Conservative Review – you can find it here.
Serving with the Hendersonville Rescue Mission
In Team Meadows, serving our local community is the absolute number one priority. This week, several of my district staffers were able to volunteer with the Hendersonville Rescue Mission – serving lunch to visitors.
We are privileged to be able to serve our community in any way – thank you to my wonderful staff for their hard work! Thank you especially to the Hendersonville Rescue Mission for everything they do.
