Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after being sworn in to the 114th Congress as the Representative for Georgia’s 14th District:
“It’s the honor of my life to continue serving Georgia’s 14th District in the House of Representatives. I will fight every day for the people I represent, and for our great nation.
“Even though we face many challenges, I am confident that we can force Washington to work for the people. With Republican control of the Senate, this new Congress has the opportunity to put bills on the president’s desk that were previously blocked by Senate Democrats. We can promote an agenda focused on freedom, where government growth is stopped in favor of private-sector jobs and economic growth. We will fight to protect hard-working Americans from tax increases and unnecessary regulations. Our agenda begins this week with legislation to end Obamacare’s destruction of the 40 hour work week, help veterans find jobs and approve the Keystone XL pipeline. I also expect the House to act soon to secure the border and ensure immigration laws are enforced. The president may choose not to work with us, but we have a clear mandate from Georgians and the American people to press forward.”
