From the desk of Congresswoman Vicki Hartzler

This week, the House of Representatives passed a series of legislation that included banning the private ownership of tigers and legalizing marijuana at the federal level, rather than working to build consensus across the aisle on much needed economic stimulus.
I voted against these bills.

At a time when so many Americans desperately need help in the face of this pandemic and when many small businesses are still struggling to keep employees on their payrolls, Congress should be doing more to address the real needs of the American people, not spending precious time on the legislative calendar on frivolous legislation.
