WILSON of South Carolina asked and was given permission to
address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, yesterday I traveled
across the Second Congressional District of South Carolina, visiting
communities in Columbia, West Columbia, Aiken, North Augusta, Barnwell,
Orangeburg, and Lexington to present my 2016 legislative agenda. At
each stop, I was grateful to share my priorities with constituents and
answer questions from the media.
In this new legislative year, I will advance legislation to create jobs for American families and reduce harmful regulations that destroy jobs. We also must protect the economic future for our children and grandchildren by passing balanced budgets and reining in Washington's out-of-control spending, which is a crushing debt on future generations.
As chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities, I am also focusing on promoting peace through strength to support our troops and keep our families safe from Islamic extremists in the global war on terrorism. I will also strive to strengthen our Nation's cyber capabilities and protect our citizens against cyber attacks by enemies.
In conclusion, God bless our troops, and may the President, by his actions, never forget September the 11th in the global war on terrorism.
