Taylor Force Act Passes House Vote
Rep. Lamborn and Rep. Lee Zeldin (NY-01) join Stuart and Robbi Force, the parents of Taylor Force, whom H.R. 1165 was named for after his murder by Palestinian Authority funded terrorism. The Palestinian Authority allocates hundreds of millions of dollars annually to pay terrorists to murder innocent Israelis and Americans. The bill is an important first step in ending U.S. tax dollars from supporting terrorists who kill innocents like Taylor.
Rally for Jack Phillips with Alliance Defending Freedom
Rep. Lamborn rallied for Jack Phillips today while the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission case. Jack doesn’t violate any proper understanding of nondiscrimination laws. He serves all people, but declines some requests for custom cakes that conflict with his faith. That is not a form of unlawful discrimination, but a legitimate exercise of his artistic and religious freedom.

Our D.C. office enjoyed having an Air Force Legislative Fellow for the past year who graduated from the program today. He diligently worked on many defense and veteran related issues (as well as many others). Thank you, Dustin, for everything you did for Colorado's Fifth District.
Today, the nation heard from Lt Gen Jay Silveria, USAF Academy Superintendent. General Silveria is doing an incredible job to educate, train, and inspire men and women to become officers of character, motivated to lead our Air Force in service to our nation. This week, I’ve had the honor to congratulate a few of the young people I’ve nominated to attend the US Air Force Academy (Official) (and our nation’s other service academies). When my calls are complete, I’ll have reached out to 40 who desire to serve as officers of character in our armed forces. I have every confidence in General Silveria’s leadership on this tough issue. Listen to the general describe his efforts to instill a culture of respect and prevent sexual assault at our nation’s premier service academy:
Wishing the Jewish people across Colorado and around the world a Happy Hanukkah. Hanukkah celebrates the miracle of the Maccabees’ recapture of the land of Judea, which includes modern day Jerusalem. I want to send a special Hanukkah greeting to the Jewish people in Jerusalem, celebrating this special holiday in their eternal and U.S.-recognized Capital. This festival of lights reminds us to fight for what is right, no matter the odds. I'm proud to support the State of Israel, whose people, against all odds, have created a vibrant democracy in a volatile region.
TAX REFORM ---> Many things about our current tax code need updating. However, Conference should change at least a few things about the House and Senate's tax bill. First, graduate students should NOT be punished with higher taxes when many are already operating on a tight budget. I support the repeal of the tax on graduate tuition waivers. Second, Congress should repeal the Death Tax for a sounder fiscal policy and better reform to our outdated tax code. That's why I sent letters to Chairman Brady and Speaker Ryan in order to see change in the current tax proposal.
You and your family are in our prayers, Rep. Brooks. https://t.co/42bf3dET3s
