    The Right to Try By Congressman Glenn Grothman April 17, 2018 Lost in the shuffle of tax reform, spending bills, foreign relations and the numerous other bills Congress has passed, the average guy scored a big victory with a bill I firmly pushed to House leadership, and my friend, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman, Greg Walden. Finally, the House passed “Right to Try” legislation, H.R. 5247, with a bipartisan vote of 267-149. What does a “Right to Try” law do? Currently, if a patient ... Read more

    Higher Education Reform Becoming a Reality By Rep. Glenn Grothman Dec. 15, 2017 As the year comes to an end, Congress is still working for you. Most recently, the House Education and the Workforce Committee, of which I’m a member, has turned its attention to reforming higher education. The Higher Education Act hasn’t been reformed in almost a decade. Since that time, the higher education landscape has changed greatly, and the American workforce is facing a shortage of skilled workers. Additional... Read more

    Promoting Meaningful Work for the Disabled Random Lake Sounder By U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman Nov. 17, 2017 Everyone has unique abilities – abilities to be celebrated and honored, and never used to hold anyone back professionally. I have heard people in the disabilities world call these “diverse abilities,” a term I like and find relevant.

    I think we can all agree that it’s important we have clean air to breathe and clean water to drink and enjoy, but it’s also important that federal agencies display common sense when creating regulations for our air and water. For decades, Sheboygan County has been locked in a battle with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The county has been unfairly, and incorrectly, held accountable for pollutants coming from outside Wisconsin. A study clearly shows the emissions are coming from elsewh... Read more

    Career and Technical Education: A Pathway to Success The Daily Caller By: Rep. Glenn Grothman Every day it seems I hear more and more stories of college graduates facing mounting student loan debt. Recently, I hosted a town hall meeting in my district where I was approached by a young couple in their early thirties. They explained to me how they have so much student loan debt that they’ve put off buying a house and even getting married because they simply can’t afford it. To make matters worse, ... Read more

  • FEMA's Role in Excessive Government Waste
    Posted in Opinion Pieces on April 27, 2017 | Preview rr

    Frequently, as Congress works through a new budget, people mostly talk about all the seemingly-wonderful programs the government can fund. But, time and time again, the federal government proves its inability to do things right when it comes to spending taxpayer money. One such example of this is how the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), a well-meaning organization, uses government funds to house displaced families and individuals after disasters. FEMA purchases Manufactured Housing Un... Read more

    The Hill Mylan CEO Should be Ashamed of EpiPen Prices By Congressman Glenn Grothman (R-Wis.) Last week the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a hearing on the skyrocketing price of life-saving Epinephrine Auto-Injectors, better known as the EpiPen. This hearing was especially important because EpiPens are predominantly used to keep children alive, which makes accessibility imperative. During the hearing, I and other members of the committee questioned Heather Bresch, CEO of Myl... Read more
