Congressman Dan Newhouse

As the Congressman for Washington’s 4th Congressional District, my number one priority is advocating for the people who live and work right here in Central Washington, contributing to our communities and economy. That’s why, last week, I voted in favor of the Consolidated Appropriations Act. This legislation not only delivers on many of Central Washington’s top priorities but preserves long-standing conservative principles and takes significant actions to strengthen our national security.

Decisions about the needs of our communities should be made at the local level, by the men and women who live, work, and farm on our land—not government bureaucrats in D.C. who’ve never even heard of the Yakima Valley. That’s why I established the Central Washington Community Project Funding Advisory Board last year, made up of representatives from each county and tribal leaders in Washington’s 4th Congressional District. These leaders selected which community project funding requests had the most public engagement and support. Thanks to the work of these representatives, 7 major projects were funded in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, from important water infrastructure projects, like the Odessa Ground Water Replacement Program to critical rural healthcare programs and facilities.
