"I am grateful for the support of the House of Representatives in honoring the late Colonel Alfred Asch for his contributions to our country and the Beaverton community. He realized his childhood dream of flying, and during World War II he bravely flew missions to liberate Europe, earning numerous decorations. As service to his country took him away from home, he never forgot where he was from. He created a scholarship for Gladwin County students at CMU, and wrote memoirs about his life in northern Michigan, the proceeds of which were donated to the Beaverton Activity Center. Colonel Asch is a hero and I am glad we're one step closer to honoring his life of service."

"Today's legislation makes it crystal clear: President Trump, Republicans, and Democrats support a new lock in the Soo. After 50 years of harsh winters and extraordinary maintenance, we need to build a second lock to be ready in case the one lock we have fails. We cannot afford a disruption of the Great Lakes shipping that is crucial to American manufacturing jobs and the products enjoyed by millions of Americans. I will be working with my colleagues on the Appropriations Committee to fund this vital construction for Michigan and the country."

"I have worked to make sure Michigan's priorities for our veterans and the Great Lakes receive the federal funding they need. This legislation includes more support for veterans in rural communities and helps all veterans who might be at risk from the opioid crisis. Recent reforms at the VA have led to increased accountability and the funding passed today will do more to help our veterans receive the care they deserve for serving our country.

"John McCain was an American hero. As a nation, we can never repay him for the sacrifices he made as a prisoner of war. He was a dedicated public servant and in the Senate he was a champion for the brave men and women of our military. He was also a fierce defender of our country's indispensable role in the world and he worked tirelessly to advance human rights and liberty for all people. He served our country with honor and distinction. My prayers are with his friends and family as the nation joins them in mourning the loss of a patriot."
