Students at Missouri S&T answered the call to jump into action during their spring break and create new protective masks for healthcare workers in Phelps County. Yet in another example of how excessive regulation can interrupt necessary innovation, the FDA has halted their efforts and...

Missouri sent a clear message to America on Tuesday – we support President Trump. The President tallied more votes for an incumbent than we’ve ever seen. I’m looking forward to November so we can put this historic turnout into action!‬

Trump and his team have been taking action since the moment the danger of COVID-19 came to light. It began by ending flights to and from infected areas and continued with guidance on health measures and lifting regulations holding back the FDA. 1/2

Early spring is typically filled with Lincoln Day events; they’re a time to celebrate our principles. As sad as I am that these events are cancelled, it’s important to note that support for our President is as strong as ever and his leadership is stronger than ever.

When Senators should have been coming together, the Ds were playing politics. They pushed ludicrous measures that have absolutely nothing to do with COVID-19 relief, & the MSM let them get away with it! Enough is enough. Pelosi, Schumer, & all you crooks - DO YOUR JOB.

Smith Fights for All Methods of Feral Hog Eradication in Mark Twain.

Congressman Smith is fighting to pass measures to enable an easier eradication of feral hogs. Feral hogs cause billions of dollars of damage yearly across America, making easy extermination of these hogs a necessity for many rural communities plagued by their presence. Congressman Smith supports deregulating the laws around killing these hogs in the Mark Twain National forest that have been a blight to farmers in Missouri and made the difficult task of farming even harder.

U.S. Rep. Jason Smith: Overcrowded Detention Centers, Overwhelmed Agents on the Southern Border.

Congressman Smith visited Detention Centers in McAllen,Texas to better understand the crisis going on at our southern border. Traveling to the busiest of all border sectors, the delegation witnessed a large drug bust. Unfortunately, that is the daily reality for border agents tasked who must deal with the deadly cartels and overcrowded detention centers. Over 144,000 were detained in May 2019, the largest total in 13 years, further emphasizing the need for securing our borders.

Rep. Smith Fires Up Family Business Estate Tax Coalition.

As a seventh-generation Missourian, Congressman Smith understands rural America and the challenges they face. Rural America remains the breadbasket of our country and powers a large sect of our economy. Newer members of Congress who don’t have that same background may not understand these issues and how to best work with these communities. In the Ways and Means Committee, Congressman Smith worked to educate other members of Congress on farming and the tax burden farmers take on.

Missouri Congressman in D.C. Thinks Ending Tax Credit Would Pay for the Wall.

Unnecessary tax breaks continue to be shelled out to those who least need them. A $7,500 tax break given to those who buy electric cars won’t help many in southeast Missouri. Ending this excessive tax break that’s totaled around $5 billion would give us enough to pay for the Wall, benefitting all Americans rather than an exclusive few.

Their brave service was highlighted recently when a record 254 pounds of fentanyl was recovered in a drug bust in Arizona. Listen to Congressman Smith speak on it here.

House passes Smith’s legislation to fight the opioid epidemic

Three Rivers Publishing, October 10, 2018

Too many Missouri families have felt the heartache of the loss of a loved one or friend to opioid addiction. The epidemic has ravaged homes and small communities and left children without parents and parents without their children. There are many things we need to do from furthering tightening the flow of goods across our borders to continuing to give law enforcement at the borders and in our towns the resources they need to fight this outbreak of opioid abuse in the U.S. One area I have focused on is where most patients are first exposed to opioids and the setting where they are often left with unused medications, surgery. I recently authored and had President Trump sign into law the Perioperative Reduction of Opioids (PRO) Act which will reduce patients exposure to unnecessary opioids post surgery, look at alternative forms of rehabilitation, and give patients and information they need on how to safely dispose of leftover opioids when they are no longer needed. We have a long way to go in this fight, but I am hopeful my legislation can be one small step towards getting our county on the winning side of this battle.

Congressman Jason Smith Holds Farmhall in Scott County

Show Me Times, August 7, 2018

As a 4th generation family farm owner myself, I love meeting with the farmers and families of southern Missouri. In August I visited 30 different agricultural operations in 30 different counties. We truly have the most diverse agricultural district found anywhere in the country. I was honored to be able to host several “Farm-hall” type meetings – open forums with Missouri farmers to hear about the latest challenges they are facing and ways I can help. It was during these visits a few years ago that I started a running list of the devastating and intrusive impact Washington regulations written by un-elected bureaucrats were having on Missouri farmers. Before he even took office, I shared that list with President Trump and his team. Together President Trump and I have now repealed over 1000 burdensome regulations with lifetime costs in excess of $33 billion. Our work is just getting started.

Smith introduces bill to permanently protect American Families

SEMO Times, May 23, 2018

The harder your work, the more the government wants to take…that just isn’t fair. Last Christmas, I worked with President Trump to help author and get signed into law the most significant tax relief for Missouri farmers, small business owners and families in the last 30 years. Key to that was lowering rates on your family, doubling the standard deduction and enhancing the per child tax credit. You should be rewarded for having a family, not punished. Unfortunately Senate Swamp rules, the filibuster, only allowed us to make those changes for the next several years, well now we need to make them permanent. This week I introduced legislation to do just that, to provide certainty to you and your family that the low rates you now know, wont be increased because of arcane Senate procedural rules.

Smith assists Vietnam veteran to get Army to recognize rightfully-earned medals

The Salem News Online, March 27, 2018

Whether it is helping our nation’s service members or veterans navigate through often complex federal health, education or retirement benefits, or making sure they receive the recognition they rightfully deserve – assisting those who have so often put country before self and before their own family is one of my greatest responsibilities and honors as a member of the United States Congress. If you know of an active duty military member or a veteran who needs help with something, with anything, please have them get in touch with me. Dave Pace is a hero, and I am glad to have help play a small part in making sure the rest of the world knows that!
