In his second term in the U.S. House of Representatives, Kansas First District Congressman Tim Huelskamp announced that he will serve on the House Small Business Committee and the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs.
"I am excited to have the opportunity to serve Main Street in the U.S. House of Representatives," Huelskamp said. "The wide range of policies and activities of the Committee -- agriculture, taxes, health care, regulation, trade, and energy -- provides tremendous opportunities to help advance a pro-growth agenda for rural Kansas. Throughout my first term I visited dozens and dozens of Kansas small businesses fearful for their future, and I will continue to serve them and all Kansans by fighting overregulation, eliminating tax increases, and opposing ObamaCare.
"And, I am honored to have the opportunity to continue serving America's heroes on the Veterans' Affairs Committee. First, our office's investigative efforts helped to draw the national spotlight on the wasteful spending at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and I will continue that battle. Second, I am working hard to fix the problems in our veterans' health care system -- especially for veterans who live in rural areas and lack access to the care and services they need. Our veterans deserve nothing but the best, and I will continue to fight for them."
