I had an opportunity on Wednesday to spend some time at the UPS facility in Raleigh. I was able to meet with UPS staff, don the UPS uniform and participate in a ‘ride along’ with a driver. My day at the facility included morning stretches, a tour of the facility and I even got to deliver a few packages in downtown Raleigh! It was a really great experience to see firsthand how the world’s largest package delivery company operates.
Most recently, I have had conversations with a few constituents about the Zika virus and what Congress is doing to stop it. In fact, just this past week, another baby was born in the U.S. who was infected with the Zika virus.
Due to the continued threat of this virus, I am supporting H.R. 897, this legislation will remove duplicative government regulations that are in the way and will allow local governments to intercede and prevent an outbreak before it’s too late. We’ve seen the health risks that the Zika virus poses, and as a healthcare professional, I’m proud to support legislation that will empower local governments while helping to prevent a public health crisis.
