The End of the August District Work Period
Every August, Congress is out-of-session for the whole month, so each member has the chance to go back to his or her district to stay in touch with the people who elected them and hear which issues are most important to each local community. So, while I am already back in Wisconsin every weekend, I returned home for the entire month of August for our yearly district work period.
As Labor Day has passed, Congress will soon be called back to Washington. As I prepare to return to Washington, I wanted to take a moment to recap my time in Wisconsin throughout the August work period.
Over the past month, I had the privilege of touring our beautiful state and meeting with many of you, including at my town hall meetings. Throughout this time, I had the opportunity to visit numerous dairy farms and manufacturing facilities. These visits were incredibly enlightening, and I gained valuable insights into the challenges and successes our local businesses and farmers face.

As Chairman of the House Oversight Committee’s Subcommittee on National Security, the Border, and Foreign Affairs, I organized a field hearing this August to hear from those most ingrained in the crisis, including a local rancher and law enforcement official from Tucson, AZ. On the Sierra Vista campus of Cochise College, we were in close proximity to various communities that are overwhelmed due to the overflow of illegal migrants in the Tucson sector.
In Washington, I will continue to uncover details on the ongoing humanitarian crisis at the border and craft solutions to put an end to it.

As Congress reconvenes next week, I will continue to represent the best interest of Wisconsin's Sixth District in our nation's Capital. Specifically, I will focus on reining in wasteful government spending, calling for resources to secure our border, and defending small businesses and employees against needless, overblown government red tape.
