Smucker Statement on President Trump’s Address to Congress
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker (PA-16) released the following statement on President Trump’s address to Congress:
“We’re dreaming big again. Tonight, President Trump laid out a bold agenda that sets clear priorities: the safety of the American people and economic opportunity for everyone.
“I was glad to hear President Trump commit to working to ensure all children have access to quality education. As the former chairman of the Committee on Education in the Pennsylvania State Senate, I am keenly aware that a good education and a well-trained workforce are vital to our economy, and both are means by which the American Dream can be accessible to all.
“This Congress and administration have already taken steps to relieve hardworking Americans of regulatory burdens that stifle job creation and hinder economic growth, but a lot more work needs to be done. President Trump made it clear he wants to build upon what we have already achieved. I will continue to look for ways we can help small businesses expand and hire more well-trained workers.
“I look forward to working with this administration and my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to advance an agenda that will improve the lives of the people I am here to represent.”
