February 24, 2017 Press Release
As you know, 23 million gallons of oil flow through the two pipelines in the Straits of Mackinac every day. A spill in that location would have a devastating impact on the Great Lakes and the economy of the surrounding states. On September 27, 2016, Enbridge identified several potential 'holidays' on the pipeline where there may be a loss of protective coating around the pipe. We urge you to review Enbridge's work plan in an expedited fashion so these vulnerabilities can be investigated as soon as possible.

In 2017, 53 JCCs in 26 States, including West Bloomfield, Michigan, have been targeted
We urge the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice to swiftly assess the situation and to advise Congress on what specific steps are being taken, or will be taken, to deter such threats from being made, to identify and prosecute the perpetrators for violations of federal criminal laws, and to enable JCCs to enhance security measures such as physical barriers and guards, in the event that an individual seeks to act upon these threats.

We are proud to renew the Macedonia Caucus for the 115th Congress aimed at highlighting issues that affect the Macedonian-American community and educating our colleagues on the important role Macedonia and the Macedonian diaspora play in forwarding American interests.
February 13, 2017 Press Release
Our constituents have felt the negative impact of this misguided law. As big banks get bigger and community banks continue to close, Americans are finding it harder to access mortgages, business loans, and affordable checking. It's time for relief. This critical first step will get small community banks and credit unions lending again, businesses hiring again, and restore homebuyers' access to affordable financing options. It's time to get Washington out of the way and promote truly responsive and responsible financial practices.

Co-chair of Congressional Macedonia Caucus stands strong with the nation of Macedonia
Macedonia has been a critical partner in advancing U.S. national security efforts around the world. Furthermore, the Macedonian diaspora in the United States has been a critical part of our community and has contributed to the diversity and advancement of our entire nation. A sovereign and strong Macedonia and Macedonian people serves to benefit our mutual interests and we must support, not undermine, our important ally.
