A Message From Thom: 

It is an incredible honor to serve each and every North Carolinian in the United States Senate. My first two months in office have been positive and productive both in Washington DC and in North Carolina.

I will regularly send you this e-Newsletter as a way to update you on my work in both North Carolina and Washington, D.C. I hope to continue the conversations we had on the campaign trail and will work hard to uphold my promises to all North Carolinians.

I encourage you to reach out to my staff with any questions or concerns. I have offices in Charlotte, Greenville and Raleigh, as well as Washington, D.C, and I plan to open more across the state to best assist you. I am holding myself responsible to ensure all constituent needs are met and have selected qualified staff in North Carolina and Washington who will work with you each and every day. Contact information for my offices can be found below.

I look forward to serving you for the next six years.

God Bless,


What Thom’s Been Up To:

Combatting Human Trafficking
  • Thom spoke on the Senate floor this week in support of the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015, and noted the tragic statistics of human trafficking crimes in America and across the world. Watch Thom speak on the floor about the human trafficking bill here: 

Protecting Taxpayers

    • In February, Thom introduced his first bill, which aims to protect hard-working taxpayers and stop the FCC from nullifying state municipal broadband laws. The legislation says that the FCC cannot preempt states with municipal broadband laws already on the books, or any other states that subsequently adopt such municipal broadband laws. The bill also mandates that the FCC does not have the legal authority to prohibit states from implementing municipal broadband restrictions.

    Prioritizing Veterans and Active Duty Personnel 

      • In February, Thom co-sponsored the Clay Hunt SAV Act, legislation that directs the Secretary of Veterans Affairs to conduct annual evaluations of the Department’s mental health care and suicide prevention programs to gauge their effectiveness and make any necessary improvements or changes. The bill is named after Clay Hunt, a Marine veteran who earned a Purple Heart in 2007 during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Hunt took his own life in 2011 after failing to receive the care he needed for his post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).The Clay Hunt SAV Act passed the Senate unanimously and was signed into law by the President on February 12, 2015. 

      Promoting Job Creation

      • In January, Thom introduced legislation to advance offshore exploration off the coast of Atlantic states. The legislation would create 55,000 jobs for North Carolina alone by 2035, and generate nearly $4 billion in royalty revenue for the state, which would help make it possible to cut taxes for middle-class families, invest more in our children’s education or improve our transportation infrastructure.

      In Case You Missed It:  

      Thom joined Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures, where he discussed the threat posed by ISIS and the Obama administration’s negotiations with Iran.
