Thank you, U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, for meeting today to talk about the importance of renewable fuels and promoting higher blends of ethanol in fuels, including E-15.

BREAKING ➡️ The STOP School Violence Act just passed the House by a vote of 407-10. While this bill is just one step, it’s important that Republicans and Democrats came together to help improve security in our schools. H.R. 4909 provides grants to help schools improve security measures, develop threat assessment and crisis intervention teams, and coordinate with law enforcement to stop violent acts before they occur. Just as there wasn’t one failure that led to the Parkland shooting, there isn’t just one solution. The House has passed a bill to strengthen background checks, last Congress passed a major overhaul of our mental health system, and we continue to investigate the failures of law enforcement at Parkland. I will continue to work with the administration, states, and local communities to address gun violence. https://rodneydavis.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=399681
