U.S. Congressman David Schweikert
This Week in Review

Hello Friends, 

This week sure was a busy one! During my visit with the Scottsdale Rotary Club we discussed the 2026 fiscal year budget and how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has positively affected Arizona jobs and household income. Rotary Club members also brought up topics to include Medicare, our immigration system and border security. It was great to get a chance to discuss topics that don't over lap, I thank them for inviting me to speak. 

One of the highlights of my week included meeting the Saguaro High School Robotics Club to see all of their hard work and gadgets. I am now wishing when I attended Saguaro High School I could have been a part of the Robotics Club!  It was great to bond over a mutual fascination with technology, while hearing about all of the impressive projects they are working on. It was an honor to meet with these bright students and I look forward to visiting with them again soon!

Office appointments with constituent groups have continued to bring new ideas to the table. This week I have had the chance to discuss topics including Arizona droughts, healthcare, and pension reform. Being on the Joint Select Committee on Solvency of Multi-Employer Pensions, I have dedicated a large portion of this summer into researching and hearing from stakeholders on this very important topic. I encourage you to look at www.pensions.senate.gov for more details on the committee's actions or if you as a stakeholder would like to submit input please email jscsmpp@finance.senate.gov. 

If you would like to set up a meeting with your group in Arizona or Washington, D.C. please email: Schweikert.Scheduling@Mail.House.Gov. 

It is an honor to be serving you in Congress and I always look forward to hearing from you. Please always feel free to contact both my district office and Washington D.C. office to ask any questions and express concerns.

This July, I wrote to HUD requesting that Phoenix be considered for the Choice Neighborhood Grant funding. In my letter I asked for Choice Grant funding for a Phoenix neighborhood who needed it, the Edison-Eastlake neighborhood. 

I am please to share the grant was awarded to the Edison-Eastlake neighborhood in Phoenix. The neighborhood was awarded a $30 million grant to transform Edison-Eastlake's housing to help reshape the community into a vibrant and safe area.
