Press Releases

January 9, 2018 Press Release
This important resolution condemns the actions of a radical regime that not only denies basic freedoms, but also continues to provide billions of dollars to terrorist activities abroad. As the largest demonstration against the nefarious regime in Tehran since 2009, it is important that the people of Iran know that the United States stands with them.
December 14, 2017 Press Release
When companies inundate individuals with pages and pages of legalese, the details are lost, and the important information is hidden. This critical legislation finally addresses the current avalanche of confusing notices consumers receive in the mail by modernizing the privacy notification process, and improving transparency and accountability.

Legislation passes U.S. House with unanimous, bipartisan support
This appalling and brutal practice has no place in Southeast Michigan, or the United States, and today we made it clear to Americans and the rest of the world that this heinous practice will not be tolerated. This is gender violence and oppression and it's time for the federal government to penalize it as such. I'm proud my colleagues from both sides of the aisle have come together to take this critical step forward in eradicating this merciless practice.
November 16, 2017 Press Release
For decades, our nation's antiquated tax code has hindered American economic growth and hurt our global competitiveness.That's why today I supported legislation that delivers real tax relief to those who need it most-hard-working families and small business owners in Southeast Michigan and throughout the country.

Rep. Trott supports 2.4% pay raise in NDAA that bolsters military readiness
Our nation's servicemen and women, without hesitation, put their lives on the line every day to protect ours. Upon returning home, we must ensure they have the ability to easily transition back into civilian life. Veterans who have refined skills on the battlefield have earned nothing less than our full support in transitioning those skills into a rewarding civilian career. I'm proud my colleagues from both sides of the aisle have come together to show our unwavering support for them.

Legislation clears final hurdle before Floor vote with unanimous, bipartisan support
These doctors, and all those who commit these horrendous crimes against innocent children across the country, must be held accountable for their unconscionable actions. We must protect our girls, and this legislation increasing the federal penalty is critical to eradicating this barbaric practice from our communities.
November 1, 2017 Press Release
Safety concerns are nationwide issue that must be addressed
These incidents and the safety concerns that accompany them are not an isolated event but a national issue, one that should be scrutinized by Congress. I met with CSX in Washington and in my district over a year ago, and they promised to address this problem. If CSX will not take substantive steps to resolve this serious situation, we will.
October 25, 2017 Press Release
These unexplained, increasingly frequent delays have obstructed emergency services, impeded residents’ mobility, and compromised driver safety. The fact that CSX trains block railroad crossings so often that schools established an excused absence policy and emergency services had to develop contingency plans for the area is nothing short of unacceptable.

Trott: Mr. Camp is a model of safety and customer service
Driving over a million miles and transporting over 5 million packages, Mr. Camp serves as a model of conscientious driving and safety. Perhaps, the only thing more impressive than his driving record is his passion for excellent customer service, one that our neighbors recognize and appreciate each and every delivery.
October 13, 2017 Press Release
In Michigan, the heartland of our nation's domestic auto industry, legislation that decreases the burden placed on the auto industry, helps provide more loans for American families, and provides greater clarity and access to information for automotive consumers is a good deal for everyone. I look forward to the full House's consideration of this common-sense legislation.
