The Stewart Standard-- Weekly Congressional Update

Jul 9, 2013
Press Release

Dear Friends,

I hope you all had a fantastic Fourth of July! This year’s holiday was particularly special for me, as it was my first Independence Day serving in the U.S. Congress. I feel so honored to be representing the great state of Utah and particularly the second congressional district. After experiencing Congress for the past six months, I have come to the realization that our nation does indeed face difficult times. Yet, I remain hopeful that through adhering to the principles that have made our nation great, we can and will fix the problems facing our country.

As I have informed my staff, I believe that we can save our nation by following four simple guidelines.

To save the nation, we need to:

1)      Reduce the Size and Influence of the Federal Government

2)      Increase Personal Freedoms

3)      Reduce National Debt and Decrease Spending, and

4)      Secure our Freedom as a Nation

I am committed to adhering to these principles. I am frequently asked what I have done in Congress. Since taking office in January, I have sponsored or co-sponsored a total of 89 bills. Click here to see the full list.  You can also view many of my House floor speeches and interviews where I discuss the work of Congress on my youtube channel.

The Week Ahead:

This week the House is expected to vote and debate on the following legislation. Visit the House Majority Leader’s website for the most up-to-date information.

  •  H.R. 1341 - Financial Competitive Act of 2013
