News from Representative Waltz


Dear Friend,


Thank you for reading my newsletter! My team and I continue to work for you and our community. It was a very eventful district work week in Florida and I’m excited to tell you about what we accomplished. Here are some highlights:

  • I went undercover at personal protective equipment (PPE) manufacturer FitUSA in Ormond Beach
  • I sent a letter to the Small Business Administration calling for a federal investigation into the illegal acceptance of Paycheck Protection Program funds by the Florida Democratic Party
  • I joined the Heritage Foundation and the U.S. Department of State to discuss women’s inclusion in global peacemaking efforts 
  • I sent a letter urging Congress to pass my PTSD research and treatment bill

UNDERCOVER CONGRESSMAN RETURNS: Meeting constituents and stepping in their shoes is one of my favorite things about being your Congressman. This week, I went behind the scenes of Ormond Beach’s FitUSA, an apparel manufacturing company that switched its operations back in March to produce PPE. I saw their PPE production process firsthand and also put myself to work and sewed my very own mask with their help. As COVID has demonstrated, bringing manufacturing back to America is so important and I’m glad to see FitUSA doing their part in our community!

PROTECTING MISUSE OF PPP MONEY: Congress created the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to help small businesses survive this pandemic. Although political parties were explicitly prohibited from receiving these loans, the Florida Democratic Party applied for and received one for $780,000. Details on how this happened and where the money actually went have been scarce and taxpayers still don’t know who at the FDP applied for this loan or if money was ever actually returned. This is NOT acceptable — and this week, I led the call for a full federal investigation into this fraudulent loan. Congress did not vote for political parties to line their pocketbooks with taxpayer money — and we have to get to the bottom of this. Read the letter here.


EMPOWERING WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD: As a Green Beret, I’ve seen the positive impact women engagement efforts had in bringing peace and prosperity to homes, villages and countries around the world. This week, I was thrilled to join the Heritage Foundation and the State Department for a conversation about including women in global peacemaking efforts and how important this is to protect our national security.

FINDING A CURE FOR PTSD: Many veterans return from war suffering from an invisible illness: post-traumatic stress disorder. To protect our military and veterans, America must pool our resources with our allies to treat PTSD. This week, I urged Congress to pass my legislation to use the U.S.-Israel partnership to research and treat PTSD in this year’s defense bill, so our veterans can heal and lead healthy lives. 


ECONOMIC IMPACT PAYMENT DEADLINE EXTENDED: The IRS has extended the deadline for non-filers to request their Economic Impact Payment to November 21. If you haven’t received an economic stimulus check yet, click here to learn more.


CONSTITUENT SUCCESS STORY: U.S. Marine Corps Maj. (Ret.) Steven Eddy of Palm Coast reached out to my office for help extending his stay at NAS Jacksonville’s medical facility. I’m happy to report my team helped advocate on behalf of Maj. Eddy to allow him to extend his stay to receive the medical care he needs.
