United States Senator Capito’s Report

Share

Friends,

I hope you had a chance to catch President Trump’s State of the Union address earlier this week. He outlined a number of commonsense policy that both Republicans and Democrats should be able to get behind, and I stand ready to work with the president to build on what we’ve already accomplished and help make this vision a reality.

Click here or the image below to hear my take on the president’s State of the Union address and keep scrolling for additional updates from this week in the U.S. Senate.

The State of Our Union

As I mentioned in my Weekly Video Message above, President Trump outlined a clear vision for our nation’s future that everyone should be able to support. Among the many priorities he discussed were two that are of great importance to our state and our people:

Border security and infrastructure.

These are two areas that I am not only passionate about, but I am also in a strong position in the U.S. Senate to take action on these issues.

When it comes to border security, I serve as the chair of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee and am one of handful of members serving on the committee tasked with negotiating a compromise to keep the government open and secure our borders.

On the infrastructure front, I was recently named chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee, allowing me the ability to lead efforts in putting together an infrastructure package that will strengthen the country’s transportation and infrastructure systems.

Senator Capito looks on as President Trump delivers the State of the Union address on Tuesday evening at the U.S. Capitol.

 

Border Security Update

This week, we continued our negotiations on the conference committee to reach a bipartisan agreement on the Homeland Security Appropriations package. On Wednesday, my fellow conferees and I were briefed by Border Patrol and Customs officers who reiterated again the need for increased resources to strengthen and improve our nation’s borders. Border security isn’t just a physical barrier. It’s also technology and personnel, and all three are equally important in keeping our country safe.

New Jobs Coming to Charleston

We had an exciting jobs announcement in West Virginia Thursday: Infor, a global technology company, will be locating its new office in Charleston. Infor develops cloud-based solutions for federal, state, and local government entities. The company anticipates it will hire 100 technical employees and will also partner with Marshall University and West Virginia State University to build a pipeline of skilled software engineers, cloud operations, and support software. This announcement helps reaffirm our ability to compete for high-skilled jobs and attract investment from leading global firms. In late 2018, I met with Infor CEO Charles Phillips to explain why West Virginia is exactly where the company should be. So glad he agreed!
