Proud to join @boblatta @MikeKellyPA in this important effort to reopen the people's House. The American people not only need, but deserve to see their democracy in action 🇺🇸
Replying to @boblatta
This morning @MikeKellyPA & I penned a letter to the Attending Physician Brian Monahan to "immediately issue up-to-date social distancing guidelines" in order to reopen the Nation's Capitol. Read our letter below⬇️

It’s true. Opportunities to enact effective #cannabis reform keep getting derailed. That’s why I introduced the #HOPEAct with @RepAOC. Conservative in approach but progressive in scope, our bipartisan bill can reestablish a path forward. Leadership needs to put it up for a vote.
Nearly one year into this Congress, not one piece of cannabis legislation has been sent to the president's desk. There is growing fear among advocates that the window to act is closing. politico.com/news/2022/01/22…

Thousands traveled to our nation’s Capitol today to #MarchForLife. I'm committed to defending the rights of the unborn in Congress and am proud of my A+ rating from @SBAList for protecting the sanctity of life. I will not fail our nation’s children when they are most vulnerable.

Great to see local news @wkyc covering Mohammad, who won OH-14's 2021 #CongressionalAppChallenge. His AchillesMath app is a great example of the innovation and ingenuity of young #STEM students throughout Northeast Ohio.

.@repdonyoung gets it. Glad to have my fellow #Cannabis Caucus Co-Chair as a cosponsor of my bipartisan #HOPEAct. By redressing the consequences of the War on Drugs and reigniting the American Dream, this important bill gives Congress the chance to #passprogress.
Too many lives have been ruined by minor marijuana offenses. States w/legal cannabis should be empowered to expunge records with these minor crimes. I'm cosponsoring the HOPE Act to fund state expungement programs & roll back damage from the War on Drugs: bit.ly/3FqAD2d

Today we reflect on the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his unrelenting efforts to make this nation a more perfect union. May his legacy inspire all of us to never stop working until every American has the opportunity to achieve their dreams. #MLKDay

Religious freedom is provided to all Americans by the Constitution. Any threat to this right is an attack on a core pillar of our nation and must be confronted. I’m committed to ensuring all Ohioans can worship peacefully without fear #ReligiousFreedomDay

Praying for a safe and swift resolution of the Congregation Beth Israel hostage crisis. I will always stand with Ohio’s Jewish community against the scourge of anti-Semitism. No American should fear a threat such as this in their place of worship.

In my weekly newsletter, I asked my constituents if the #energycrisis was impacting them. The overwhelming answer: YES @POTUS must reverse his failed policy of restricting the production/delivery of U.S. natural gas and oil to once again provide affordable energy to Americans.

🚨 #BREAKING 🚨 #SCOTUS has ruled: @POTUS can’t tell private businesses what to do. This is good news for Ohio workers and job creators. It's not the role of the federal government to force private employers to police their employees’ vaccination status.
BREAKING: Supreme Court blocks the Biden administration's vaccine-or-test rule for U.S. businesses, but allows a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for most health care workers. apne.ws/kxusniD

My colleagues on the other side of the aisle have no problem requiring you to show a photo ID to eat at a restaurant. Yet requiring an ID to vote and shape our democracy (which is supported by 80% of Americans) is a step too far?
Remember that starting Saturday you will need these three things before heading out: 1. Proof of Vaccination (12 years +) 2. Proof of Vaccination and Photo ID (18 years +) 3. Mask For more information visit vaxdc.dc.gov.

#Inflation just hit a 40-year high. Clearly, it's not transitory. This @USDOL report is a reality check for @POTUS & Congressional Democrats. If they don't rein in their out-of-control spending, they'll exacerbate this economic crisis and continue to hurt hardworking Americans.
BREAKING: #inflation rose 7% over the past year, the highest level since 1982.

With Ohio ranking as high as 5th in the USA for reported #humantrafficking cases, we all have a responsibility to do our part to end these inhumane crimes. That's why I'm a cosponsor of @repmeijer's DHS Blue Campaign Enhancement Act and joined @DHSBlueCampaign's #WearBlueDay ⬇️

.@RepPerlmutter’s hard work on #cannabis reform over the years created the opportunity currently before Congress to get #SAFEBanking signed into law. A good man and common sense legislator who I’m proud to call a friend. He’ll be missed by many on both sides of the aisle.
