One of the newest members in Congress has spent the past decade and a half rising to the top of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's political corruption unit, and he is wasting no time putting his know-how to work through legislation.
Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08) delivered a ‘State of the Nation Address’ to members of the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce on Friday highlighting his work during his first two months in office. The speech focused on the outlook of tax reform in the 115th Congress, efforts to combat the community’s opioid and heroin epidemic and a commitment to increasing civility locally and nationally.
The following are excerpts from his remarks to the Chamber:

Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick, R-8, will serve on two high-profile committees in the U.S. House of Representatives for the next two years. House Speaker Paul Ryan handed out assignments Wednesday, naming Fitzpatrick to the Homeland Security and Foreign Affairs committees.
