·         Rep. David Schweikert’s Comments prior to President Obama's press conference today: "Millions of working families are struggling to cope with the uncertainty created by the disastrous implementation of the President's health care plan.  How can anyone realistically plan for the future when the President selectively and arbitrarily changes the rules every week? Today's press conference is a leadership moment opportunity for the President to provide relief and peace-of-mind to working families.  At this point, the responsible and common-sense thing to do is support House Republican efforts to implement a one-year delay on Affordable Care Act mandates for all Americans."

·         Last Night The US Senate Passed The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014, which includes language by Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) transferring 22 military aircraft to the Forest Service for battling major wildfires.

“This is a real step forward in replenishing the Forest Service’s dwindling air tanker fleet, which is critically important to fighting wildfires,” said McCain. “This year’s wildfire season burned millions of acres across the West and brought tragedy to Arizona with the loss of the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots in the Yarnell Hill Fire. Wildfire suppression aircraft are vital to protecting human life and property. Congress must do more to restore the Forest Service air tanker fleet, but this transfer will boost their ability to fight wildfires.” Every year, millions of acres are destroyed by wildfires across the western United States. While aircraft are vital to the Forest Service’s ability to fight wildfires, the aviation fleet owned by the Forest Service has become seriously degraded. A U.S. Government Accountability Office report released in August warns that the number of Forest Service large air tankers (LATs) has dropped from 44 aircraft in 2003 to just 8 aircraft in 2013. 

Under the Defense bill passed last night, seven surplus HC-130H Hercules aircraft will be sent to the Forest Service as LATs and fifteen C-23B Sherpa aircraft will serve as smokejumper and cargo transports. The transfer of the HC-130H aircraft nearly doubles the number of LATs operated by the Forest Service today.

The tanker capacity of the HC-130H is 3,000-4,000 gallons per aircraft and each aircraft will be structurally reinforced by the U.S. Air Force to extend their operational lifetime to about 10 years, according to the Forest Service. In 2012, Senator McCain authored a similar provision in the Defense Authorization bill calling for the transfer seven C-27J Spartan aircraft to the Forest Service as medium-sized 1,500-gallon air tankers. The language in this year’s Defense bill swaps out these C-27J for the larger HC-130H after the U.S. Coast Guard offered the Forest Service those aircraft in exchange for the C-27Js. 


·         U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and Congressman Peter King (NY-02) today wrote a letter to President Obama asking him to grant a long-overdue presidential pardon to the late Jack Johnson, the world’s first African American heavyweight boxing champion, who was unjustly convicted under the Mann Act in 1913 for transporting his white girlfriend across state lines. In 2009, the U.S. Congress unanimously approved a resolution supporting a posthumous pardon for Mr. Johnson.

Dear Mr. President, We are writing on the behalf of the members of the United States Congress who in 2009 unanimously approved a resolution, S.CON.RES.29, supporting a posthumous pardon for Jack Johnson. As you know, Jack Johnson, the first African American Heavyweight Boxing Champion, was unjustly convicted under the Mann Act in 1913 for transporting his white girlfriend across state lines.Per your response to our last letter to you on Jack Johnson, we are aware that presidential pardons are rarely issued on a posthumous basis. We are, however, also aware that the idea of a posthumous pardon is not without precedent, given President Clinton’s pardon of Henry O. Flipper in 1999 and President Bush’s pardon of Charles Winters in 2008. We ask you today in the 100th year after Jack Arthur Johnson’s racially motivated conviction that you grant him a much overdue presidential pardon. We appreciate your consideration of this request and we look forward to your response. - Senator John McCain & Congressman Peter King


·         Speaker Of The Arizona House Rep Andy Tobin, R-Prescott (LD1), and House Minority Leader Chad Campbell, D-Phoenix (LD24), have asked Gov Jan Brewer to restore reductions in funding for transportation infrastructure, critical to rural Arizona. “Faced with more than a $3 billion dollar budget shortfall in 2010, tough choices had to be made,” Tobin said. “But after two years of delivering a balanced budget that also deflected cuts from key areas like education, now is the time to restore reductions in HURF funding for roads and bridges.”

The Highway User Revenue Fund is the main source of revenue to fund improvements and maintenance of the state’s roads, highways and bridges, Tobin said. “And those dollars are particularly missed or felt in many rural communities around the state,” he added.

In the letter, Tobin and Campbell requested that the governor restore $238 million to HURF during fiscal years 2015 and 2016, in addition to existing HURF revenues. The Legislature diverted money from HURF during the recent fiscal crisis to offset cuts in other priority areas. “Restoring HURF will help communities across our state repair streets and roads that were neglected at the height of the financial crisis,” Campbell said. Investing in the state’s transportation infrastructure will help bring the recovery to all parts of the state, Tobin said.
