These days, it seems like news coverage is dominated by stories designed to prompt mass hysteria, outrage and fear. What you won't hear on the news is the hard work that's happening behind-the-scenes in Congress to keep our country safe and our economy strong. Ignoring these stories does the American people a disservice. You deserve a fully transparent view of what is happening in Washington.

That's why I film a Week In Review video: to give you a look at how I spend my time when I'm up in Washington. This week you'll hear about a bill we introduced to keep Jewish Community Centers safe, hearings we held to improve the water quality in our area, a bill we passed in committee to combat anti-Semitism and steps we're taking to ensure rail safety.
