WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05) released the following statement regarding President Trump's State of the Union Address:
"President Trump rightfully highlighted the successful transition that he has led from a stagnant economy to a thriving American recovery boasting 2.4 million new jobs, ending the war on coal and passing historic tax reform that is already increasing paychecks and benefits for hard-working Americans. I was pleased to hear the President’s commitment to make critical infrastructure improvements, boosting national security and our military strength, and paving the way for immigration reform. I applaud the President for honoring American heroes and inspiring our nation with a message of hope."
