Congressional Report: April 30-May 4, 2018

Congress has been in recess this week, and Sen. Portman, Sen. Brown, and Rep. Turner have been in Ohio.

Representative Turner

Major Votes: None.

Other Activity

This week Rep. Turner has been in and around the Miami Valley. He deserves credit for his part in the bipartisan effort to combat sexual assault in the military and allow for expedited base transfers for any military victim of sexual assault – PERSISTagainstMSTact. He tweeted about working with Rep. Tsongas (D-MA) to encourage timely investigation of aircraft mishaps. And while he held press conferences at the Dayton International Airport and Wright-Patt, he still could not find time to allow his constituents to question him at a town hall.

Senator Portman

Major Votes: None

Other Activity

Sen. Portman spent the week traveling across the state touting his efforts on controlling sex trafficking as well as the supposed benefits of the tax “reform” legislation although Friday’s employment report included a less-than-exciting jobs number and no significant increase in wages.

Senator Brown

Major Votes: None

Other Activity

Sen. Brown tweeted his support for the continuing bipartisan efforts to preserve funding for preserving the Great Lakes, for his support of veterans and the VA, and for the work of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. He called on General Motors to reconsider their plans to reduce capacity and lay off as many as 1,500 at the Lordstown Assembly Complex – especially since under the terms of the new tax legislation they could immediately write off the costs of retooling the plant. And on World Press Freedom Day he expressed his gratitude to reporters.
