This week, the House passed the bipartisan Securing Global Telecommunications Act I led with Rep. Manning to prioritize the security of our networks and ensure the United States continues leading in global telecommunications standards.

We cannot let China or Russia write the rules of the road for our networks. I'm glad we could get this bill one step closer to the finish line!

Holy cow! Team Young had a blast at the Rotary Club of Placentia’s 13th Annual Cowabunga BBQ N' Beer Festival.  

Over the years, Cowabunga has raised more than $160,000 to invest in community projects and scholarships for Placentia students in need.

Despite our bipartisan plea to prevent Iranian President Raisi from receiving a U.S. visa, President Biden turned a blind eye to the Iranian regime’s cruel atrocities.  

Meanwhile, the Iranian people are peacefully protesting for their freedoms following the recent death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old who died after Iran’s morality police detained her for not wearing a hijab.

As a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, I'm following this situation closely and rallying with the people of Iran as they pursue a better future.

When we unite behind a common cause, there is nothing we can't do! Thank you to all the great speakers and performers.

The STEP Improvement Act allows small businesses to grow and expand into new markets by facilitating more exports of American goods and services.
