Foreign Affairs

America must lead on the world stage, or someone else will. It is imperative that we lead through diplomacy and strong defense policies.

In 2018, Matt secured a $41.9 million authorization to fund military test ranges, including our local Gulf Test Range. This allocation will not only ensure that the U.S. has the greatest fighting force the world has ever seen, but also keeps great paying jobs in our community. Keeping the American people safe at home and abroad is the Federal government’s most important duty. Matt knows that a well-trained and fully-funded military is critical in ensuring our national security and fighting terrorism. We must project global strength and send our enemies a clear message that we will not tolerate any acts that threaten our safety and security.

“I rise today to support our friend and ally Israel and to stand for the obvious proposition that Israel, the Jewish people, have an ancient connection to the city of Jerusalem.  This connection has been forged through millennia shared faith and shared history yet the U.N. is actually trying to rewrite history and condemn Jerusalem and call it an occupying power in Jerusalem and prevent scientists from excavating even though past findings have been significant.  They have been silent when Israel's culture has been attacked including the desecration and burning of holy sites.
