I had a great time playing Financial Football with Greg Olsen and Thomas Davis of the Carolina Panthers at Stall High in North Charleston Monday morning! Financial Football promotes financial literacy among high school students through a football video game. It is a fun way to get our young people involved in learning about financial literacy.
Poverty Summit at Georgetown University
I enjoyed speaking at the Georgetown Poverty Summit on Tuesday, May 12th. Poverty is not a political issue, it is a moral, ethical, and biblical one. I truly believe education is the doorway to the American dream and the closest thing to magic. Watch my remarks by clicking the photo.
The Importance of the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program
I also testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee at Archbishop Carroll High School on the importance of school choice and the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program. I discussed my CHOICE Act, Opportunity Agenda and building a brighter educational future for our children.
Body Camera Hearing, Tuesday May 19, 2015
The Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism will hold a hearing at 2:30PM next Tuesday, May 19, entitled "Body Cameras: Can Technology Increase Protection for Law Enforcement Officers and the Public?"
I believe that body-worn cameras will keep both law enforcement officers and citizens safer, while providing invaluable evidence for potential investigations. I look forward to continuing our efforts to find the best path forward on this issue at the hearing.
Thanks again for reading!
