Last week, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) wrote an op-ed in the St. George News on Utah’s ongoing drought and how we can not only survive these conditions, but come out the other side with a better, more sustainable system. “…Ultimately, our cheapest and most convenient option is to get more use out of the water we already have.

The full op-ed is available here and below. Rep. Chris Stewart on drought and the ne... Read More »

Rep. Stewart’s Latest Op-Ed in the Deseret News

Yesterday, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) wrote an op-ed in the Deseret News on the Fairness for All (FFA) Act. This year, Rep. Stewart reintroduced this legislation that proves the fight for LGBTQ rights are not mutually exclusive to the rights of religious liberty. “Civil rights are not a finite resource. We don’t have to take from one group to give to another…We have wasted enough time, energy, and money fighting over who deserves which legal protections. It’s time to define the federal protections for our LGBTQ and religious friends and neighbors. I believe the FFA Act is the best approach to b... Read More »

Today, President Biden had his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. After their summit, Congressman Chris Stewart (R-UT) released the following statement. “First, I would like to commend President Biden for raising the issue of human rights with President Putin.

Rep. Stewart’s Latest Op-Ed in The Daily Caller

Yesterday, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) wrote an op-ed in The Daily Caller on the House Intelligence Committee’s recent efforts to turn the massive powers of the Intelligence Community inward, toward the American people. “This is not a slippery slope; it is the edge of a cliff. If my Democratic colleagues don’t reconsider this course of action, it will break the bipartisan consensus supporting the all-important mission of the IC, destroy public trust and ultimately increase the opportunity for foreign adversaries to divide us. America’s national security is too important to fall victim to partisa... Read More »

Rep. Stewart’s Latest Op-Ed in the Deseret News

Yesterday, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) wrote an op-ed in the Deseret News on critical race theory and the “1619 Project.” “Young Utahns deserve an understanding of civics and American history.

Chris Stewart From Day 1 in office, President Joe Biden has ... Read More »

Stewart writes. The full op-ed is available here and below. Biden's Afghanistan wi... Read More »

Rep. Stewart’s Latest Op-Ed in Newsweek

Today, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) wrote an op-ed in Newsweek on the fundamental shift in America’s political factions: Democrats now represent the interests of big corporations, and Republicans are the proud defenders of the American worker. “As the Democrat Party applauds corporate America for its woke left turn, it's likely that the two will only become more and more intertwined. Big business is no longer the defender of a free economy—its interest is in making an ally of the party currently in power. This solidified a shift that has been in the making for quite some time: Democrats reside on... Read More »

Rep. Stewart’s Latest Op-Ed in the Deseret News

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) recently wrote an op-ed in the Deseret News on a provision within Democrats’ $1.9 trillion “COVID-19 relief” bill that bans Utah from cutting taxes. “Using vague and expansive language, the policy prohibits states from implementing tax cuts until 2024 if they want to receive any of the COVID-19 relief. So it not only sets Utah’s tax policy for us, but it ties our hands for the remainder of the Biden administration,” Rep. Stewart writes. The full op-ed is available here and below. Democrats won’t let Utah cut taxes as part of their ‘COVID-19 relief’ By Rep. Chris Stewa... Read More »

ICYMI: Stewart Discusses the Dangers of Politicizing the Military

This week, Congressman Chris Stewart (R-UT) joined Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle to discuss the dangers of politicizing the military. Over the past few days, some uniformed service members have engaged in political commentary. This is an irresponsible, dangerous trend that must be stopped. Our military leaders need to focus on their all-important duty: Defending the American people. “This is not their job. They are not to set policy and they are not supposed to be involved in politics… In a day when everything is politicized, everything from the NBA, football, toys, Dr. Seuss, the border wall, ...
