Brian Fitzpatrick heads into Washington with independent agenda

Freshman Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick's modest Washington, D.C., office is not nearly as roomy as the one formerly used by his brother, retired three-term Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick.

He managed, however, to hang on to at least one feature: a giant Ferris wheel built with K'NEX, the construction toys manufactured in Hatfield Township, a Montgomery County piece of Fitzpatrick's 8th Congressional District that also includes all of Bucks County.

Brian Fitzpatrick lobbies for PFOS/PFOA health study funding

Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick appeared before a congressional subcommittee Thursday morning to request that Defense Department money be directed toward funding for a comprehensive health study of Bucks and Montgomery county residents affected by high levels of perfluorinated compounds, also known as PFOS and PFOA, found in drinking water. 

Fitzpatrick, R-8, also asked the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee to allocate money for the remediation effort of public and private wells contaminated by the compounds.
