Hunting and fishing are part of our Mississippi tradition. David has received an "A" rating from the National Rifle Association and was one of the first Senators to receive the NRA endorsement in 2011. He is a member of Mississippi Legislature Sportsman's Caucus.
David is the lead author of two important laws to help our military personnel: the Armed Forces Absentee Voting law to help military personnel vote more easily from overseas; and a measure to clarify income tax deductions for National Guard personnel.
The Armed Forces Absentee Voting law will make it easier for military personnel serving overseas to vote by absentee ballot. Soldiers in Afghanistan or Iraq must have their right to vote protected.
