Congressional Issues

My district offices are hosting two Service Academy Resource Events for students in Maryland's First District. The events will be held at Bennett High School and Elkton High School in the month of April. All college-bound high school students and their parents are strongly encouraged to attend. 

We have invited representatives from West Point and the Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine, and Naval Academies to attend.  Our staff will also explain the appointment process.

WASHINGTON, DC: Congressman Andy Harris (MD-01) is pleased to announce the 2015 Congressional Art Competition. Each spring, the House of Representatives sponsors the competition to recognize the artistic talents of high school students in each congressional district throughout the country.


WASHINGTON, DC: Congressman Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union tonight:

“Tonight, we heard the President outline his plan for the country and unfortunately we have heard it all before. More taxes, more spending. President Obama claims to want to help hard-working taxpayers, yet he continues to advocate for the failing policies that have hampered job creation and growth in the economy. He made it clear that he wants to raise taxes again, while continuing to spend even more money we do not have.
