Congressman Jim Bridenstine Celebrates Signing of the Weather Research and Forecasting Innovation Act

Last evening, President Trump signed into law H.R. 353, the Lucas-Bridenstine Weather Research and Forecasting Innovation Act.

Congressman Jim Bridenstine:  “This legislation prioritizes improving weather forecasts and opens opportunities for new and innovative sources of weather information.  I congratulate President Trump for moving us closer to a day when we have zero deaths from tornadoes and severe weather events.” 

The Time for Repeal is NOW!

Freedom Caucus members have been on the front lines of opposing Obamacare since the day it was proposed. They were instrumental in turning back Republican support of the first draft of the legislation. And in the face of the threats from Congressional leadership, the Freedom Caucus boldly exercised its authority to stand firm and say ‘no’ to bad policy.

Jim Bridenstine: Statement on Obamacare Repeal

The vote on the American Healthcare Act is a very tough decision.  As the Representative of the First District of Oklahoma, my philosophy has been to fight for the most conservative option possible, and I often vote “No” to get to a “better Yes”.  Today, I decided the American Healthcare Act is the best “Yes” that the House is able to accomplish legislatively at this time.  Conservatives worked very hard to improve this bill, and while we hoped for a better bill, this is a dramatic improvement over Obamacare.

[Editor’s Note: So sad to see this failure to repeal on the part of so many R’s. Surrounded by socialism and caving on principles does not bode well for the party or the nation. Will Obamacare become Republicare? Socialism does not work!/sc]
