As your Representative, I believe that growing our economy is one of the most important issues facing our country. I also believe that the best way to stimulate our economy is to get the government out of the way so that individuals, families, and businesses can prosper.

In 2017, working with my colleagues and President Trump, we fulfilled our promises to grow jobs and the economy, roll back regulatory overreach and enact significant tax reform.

A key reason Americans voted for change in 2016 was to improve our economy. We’re off to a great start. 2.1 million jobs were created in 2017, dropping the unemployment rate to its lowest mark since 2000. Consumer confidence rose to a 17-year high. Growth topped 3 percent in both the second and third quarters.

The tax cuts signed in December by the President will further spur job creation, and Idahoans will keep more of their money, helping families meet expenses and make crucial investments. Another boost will come from regulatory reform. This year Congress repealed 14 last-minute Obama Administration regulations, eliminating $35 billion in compliance costs, according to the American Action Forum.
