Issues

Abortion ‌

I am 100 percent pro-life. I believe in the sanctity of human life, that life begins at conception, and in protecting the rights of the unborn.

Agriculture ‌

It is important that Congress support the growth and development of the agriculture industry by fighting for policies that will encourage economic growth in Missouri and nationwide.

Conservative Values ‌

As your Representative I will continue to use common sense criteria in evaluating any legislation that is brought to the floor of the House and vigorously defend the values that we hold dear as Missourians and Americans.

Education ‌

My top priority for improving education is to remove burdens and let the state and local authorities decide what is best for our children.

Energy & Environment ‌

We need an all-of-the-above approach to energy. We need more oil, gas, coal and nuclear energy production combined with more wind, solar, hydropower, and geothermal energies.

Health Care ‌

People, not the government, are the source of prosperity in our country and they make the American health care system the envy of the world.

Homeland Security ‌

Today there are many challenges facing our country and none is greater than keeping our people safe. I am doing everything in my power to make sure we are protected and that those who serve on the front lines have the tools they need to get the job done.

Immigration ‌

I believe in legal, regulated, and appropriate levels of immigration. However, we need to solve the illegal immigration problem that threatens to overwhelm border states and severely disrupts our society.

National Defense ‌

One of the most important responsibilities of our government is to keep our nation safe.

Small Business ‌

Small businesses are the heart-beat of this economy, representing 99.7% of all companies in America, employing half of all private sector employees and accounting for over half of the private sector economy.
