·       Rick Santorum, Former Republican Presidential Candidate, former US Senator and current chairman of Patriot Voices will be in Arizona Sunday, April 6 in support of gubernatorial candidate Frank Riggs.  “Rick Santorum and I share a special bond.  As newly elected Congressmen, we exposed the House Bank and Post Office abuses and reformed Congress.  He is a principled conservative leader who has consistently demonstrated his core pro-life, pro-family beliefs I share.  Both Rick and I are advocates for constitutionally limited government and oppose Common Core and Obamacare's Medicaid expansion as an infringement upon state responsibility for K-12 education and indigent health care,” said Riggs. Riggs and Santorum have been friends for 24 years, including the time they served together in the US Congress. They will hold a press conference at 3 pm, at Barry Goldwater Park, 6401 N.

·       Congressman David Schweikert: The U.S. is currently negotiating trade agreements with 11 Asian-Pacific economies, 28 member countries of the European Trade Union, 22 other countries for a trade-in-services-agreement, and 159 member of the world trade organization. Secured negotiations with the Asia-Pacific and EU alone would open markets with nearly 1 billion consumers. In order to secure America’s negotiating position and grow these opportunities, Congress must reauthorize a trade promotion authority (TPA) which expired in 2007. Recently, leaders of the House Ways and Means Committee introduced H.R. 3830, the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities Act of 2014, establishing trade promotion authority for current trade negotiations, as well as instilling a more robust consultation process with Congress and the public, updating negotiating objectives for the 21st century, and ensuring Congress’ control of implementing bills. “The numbers backing up the need for trade promotion authority and these improvements beg the question: why wouldn’t we support this agreement?,” said Schweikert. In the last year, national exports to 20 countries brought in $2.3 trillion-- $10.6 billion of which was brought in just from Arizona exports alone. Just three years ago, exports accounted for 6.8 percent of Arizona’s GDP. "This type of revenue is just one reason I support these efforts. Job creation is another reason. At a time when America is still struggling to recover economically, expanding trade and growth opportunities is vital to restoring vibrancy to America’s economy.”  bill here.


·       Congressman Paul Gosar: One of my top priorities is eliminating waste, fraud and abuse whenever I can find it. My efforts are paying off! My legislative request to ban life-size pictures printed on scrims that conceal scaffolding successfully cleared a House subcommittee Thursday and was included in the Fiscal Year 2015 Appropriations Bill. These pictures cost thousands of taxpayer dollars and serve no legitimate purpose. The Architect of the Capitol justified this lavish practice by asserting that it is 'used extensively in Europe.' This is America and we should not be wasting taxpayer money in this manner. Click HERE to read more.


·       Congressman Paul Gosar: On Thursday, I the American Indian Trust Responsibility Review Act. This bipartisan legislation will, for the first time since the 1970s, provide a comprehensive overview of and help us improve the unique trust relationship between the United States and American Indian tribes. Over the years, this trust relationship has eroded. The comprehensive review established by my legislation will help us start to repair this sacred relationship. Click HERE to read more.


·       Congressman Matt Salmon:  Secretary of State John Kerry testified in front of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs where I asked him to describe our strategy in the Western Hemisphere. Kerry demonstrated the priorities of the State Department when he responded by talking about the importance of paying attention to climate change. As Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, I convened a hearing shortly thereafter to highlight the problem of U.S. disengagement from Latin America and how it can compromise our national security and economic interests.


·       Congressman Matt Salmon: My SNAP Verify Act (H.R. 4006) fights rampant fraud in the system by merely requiring a picture ID when using benefits. As reported by the Arizona Republic, there is an alleged case of millions of dollars in SNAP fraud. With over $750 million in SNAP card and food trafficking fraud each year, it is time for Congress to take action to address the rampant waste in this federal program. My commonsense reform will save taxpayers millions and ensure the program is available to those in need.


·       Congressman Paul Gosar “Downwinders of  Mohave County” Field Hearing is scheduled April 14 in Kingman.(Downwinders are people who developed cancer due to radiation exposure from U.S. nuclear weapons testing in the 1950s and 1960s.) They  will discuss the history of nuclear weapons testing in Nevada and the bill that Gosar introduced to make all affected residents of Mohave County eligible for benefits. Currently, only the part of Mohave County north of the Grand Canyon is eligible. Details: HERE. Kingman Daily Miner HERE.

·        What Does "Pc" Mean? If you guessed "Politically Correct" or "Personal Computer" keep reading. Arizona law defines a party's neighborhood leaders as Precinct Committeemen, who are elected by voters and have a duty to help their fellow Republicans vote. You can read more about them in the AZGOP's PC Handbook and download this Powerpoint presentation about our activities and responsibilities, including how to find your neighborhood PC or become one yourself. If you happen to live in Maricopa County, the list of PCs is here.  - AZGOP Newsletter
