·       Rep Thorpe Highlights Needs Of Coconino Flood Victims; In 2010, the Schultz fire destroyed more than 15,000 acres of forest lands in Coconino County, and the recent rains resulted in flooding and the loss of 4-6'' of topsoil in the affected areas. Last month, the situation was compounded as the Flagstaff area marked one of the wettest July's in almost 100 years.

With little vegetation left to retain rainwater, many homeowners were recently devastated by the resulting floods. To make matters worse, as they do not live in an active flood plain, many of those families did not have flood insurance nor are they able to finance the necessary repair costs needed to restore their homes and replace personal water damaged items.

            Reacting to the plight of the affected families in his district, State Rep Bob Thorpe (R-Dist.6) has issued a statewide appeal to the people of Arizona to come to the aid of the families currently coping with the effects of the recent flooding. "I am proud of the generosity and outpouring of support that was extended to the families affected by the recent Yarnell Fire. I encourage all the good people of our state to work with the United Way of Northern Arizona and other disaster relief organizations to help these families salvage their homes and restore their lives," Thorpe said.

·       Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) explains his vote on a few key bills that passed the U.S. House of Representatives this week aimed at reducing federal government intrusion into the lives of Arizonans.

o   “Because we’ve already seen over 45,000 pages of regulation created in just 2013, I voted in favor of H.R. 367, the Regulations In Need of Scrutiny Act (REINS Act). This legislation states that economically significant regulations estimated to have an economic impact greater than $100 million are required to have the approval of Congress.

o   “In keeping my pledge to eliminate Obamacare and all its harmful rules and regulations, I was proud to vote for H.R. 2009, Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act. With the IRS and its government bureaucrats set to create an office solely dedicated to control nearly 50 aspects of Obamacare’s implementation, it’s critical we keep them away from this harmful piece of legislation.

o   “Finally, I was proud to support H.R. 2879, Stop Government Abuse Act, which targets government bureaucrats and officials who abuse their power. Sadly, we have seen this abuse by agencies like the IRS, EPA, and the NSA.

As Congress returns to their districts for the August work period, I look forward to talking with my constituents on ways we can further hold the government accountable to the American people.”

 

·       Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-08), co-chair of the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus: "Iranian President Rouhani's and Hezbollah Leader Nasrallah's anti-Semitic remarks unequivocally confirm three things we already knew:

o   "1.) It is vital for those of us in Congress to make clear that America's commitment to Israel remains steadfast and that Israel's enemy is America's enemy.

o   "2.) The US House of Representatives' newly passed legislation (H.R. 850) to enact crippling sanctions to prevent a nuclear capable Iran is more vital than ever before -- Rouhani is NOT a moderate and his selection does NOT mark an Iranian step toward legitimate diplomacy, but only enhances Iran's ties to terrorist organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas.

o   "3.) Now is the ideal time for America to make an unwavering statement in support of our closest ally in the world, by officially and unequivocally recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's undivided, eternal capital, and by transferring our Embassy from its current location in Tel Aviv to the more modern location in Jerusalem currently housing our consulate (H.R. 2846) -- a move that could also amount to significant savings for American taxpayers."
