U.S. Congressman David Schweikert

On August 25, 2018, we lost a great man, a great leader and a great voice for our home state of Arizona. Throughout his long and distinguished life, Senator McCain personified honorable service to one’s nation. There is no question that with his passing, Senator McCain will serve as a shining example to all who endeavor to a life of service to America. 
Today on the House Floor, I had the distinct honor of presenting the Bereavement Resolution to honor the life and legacy of Senator John McCain.  It was an honor to be included in this morning's ceremony. God bless Senator McCain and his family, may he Rest In Peace.
Economic Update

Recently our economy has seen amazing growth and I wanted to provide an update on how the U.S. economy is benefiting Arizonans.

Chart to the left: shows the comparison of the U.S. unemployment rate and Arizona unemployment rate. The blue line shows Arizona's unemployment rate and the red line shows the United States. 
Chart to the right: shows the increase in nonfarm payroll jobs created in June and July totaling to 2,000 in comparison to the 12 month average of 5,000 jobs. More jobs are being created!

This graph shows the GDP Growth. In CBO's forecast, real GDP growth spurred by fiscal stimulation is 3.1% this year and 2.4% next year.

I had great meetings with the Arizona Department of Financial Institutions and the Arizona Department of Insurance. Each meeting involved policy discussion on what Congress is doing to serve these groups, as well as the importance of technology like blockchain that can positively transform policy.

I met with Mrs. Carrino and Mrs. Wentzel to talk about the late Mr. Carrino and his service to our country. Mr. William Carrino received Congress’ highest honor, the Congressional Gold Medal for his work in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) during World War II. Thank you for joining me to reflect on Mr. Carrino’s unforgettable work. 

I also had several office appointments to meet with groups of constituents coming in to discuss issues affecting Arizona.
