The Hill: Cool it with the regulations, Washington! March 12, 2019

| Posted in In the News

Permalink Indoor comfort systems are among the largest users of energy in America. And they’re not going anywhere, because heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems don’t just keep us comfortable. They keep us alive. In 2003, a heat wave struck Europe that was slightly worse than an average summer in my home state, Oklahoma. Thankfully, most of Oklahoma has air conditioning. But in...

Fox News: Dem gun bill threatens to turn gun owners into criminals

| Posted in In the News

Permalink The House of Representatives is expected to vote Wednesday on misguided legislation that supposedly would improve criminal background checks of gun buyers and keep guns out of the hands of criminals.

USA TODAY: Thank Republicans for leading the charge against the opioid crisis: Kevin McCarthy

| Posted in In the News

USA TODAY Our nation is in the midst of the deadliest drug crisis in history — a crisis fueled by opioids. More than 630,000 Americans have died from drug overdoses since the turn of the century.
