A Great Man From Our Mississippi.

REP. HARPER SELECTED AS CHAIR OF COMMITTEE ON HOUSE ADMINISTRATION

Dec 2, 2016 Issues: Congressional Issues
WASHINGTON – Last night, U.S. Representative Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) was selected as Chairman of the Committee on House Administration for the 115th Congress by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI).
Harper made the following statement upon his appointment, “I am so honored that Speaker Ryan has trusted me to take on the responsibilities of Chairman of the Committee on House Administration,” said Congressman Harper. “As the Committee that oversees the operations of the House of Representatives, I will work hard to ensure that the institution runs in an effective and efficient manner as we tackle the challenges facing our country. I look forward to working with this upcoming Congress and the new administration as we enact real change toward building a Better Way for a Confident America.”
In his announcement of Harper’s appointment, Speaker Paul Ryan said:
“It is such a privilege to appoint my friend and colleague Gregg Harper as Chairman of the Committee on House Administration. His experience, sense of fairness, and good nature will serve the committee and the country well. I look forward to working with Gregg as we strive to meet the highest standards of stewardship on behalf of the American people.”
Rep. Candice Miller (R-MI), the outgoing Chairman of the Committee, congratulated Chairman Harper on his appointment:
“I sincerely congratulate Gregg Harper on his appointment as Chairman of the Committee on House Administration. Gregg’s prior service on the Committee and tenure in the House of Representatives will be an invaluable asset as he leads the Committee as Chairman and helps to guide our Institution forward. This Committee has the responsibility to ensure that the House runs in an effective and efficient manner, and I am confident he will meet these challenges and responsibilities over the next two years. I applaud Speaker Ryan on making this important appointment and I wish Gregg all the best as he takes on this chairmanship.”
The Committee on House Administration is a standing committee of the House of Representatives with a vast oversight responsibility, including: federal elections; the day-to-day operations of the House; the administration of the House office buildings and facilities of the House on Capitol Hill; the budgets of other House committees and each Member’s office; and the oversight of the United States Capitol Police; the Library of Congress; the Government Printing Office; the Smithsonian Institution; the Clerk of the House; the Chief Administrative Officer; the Sergeant at Arms; the House Inspector General; and the Architect of the Capitol. In addition to the disposition of election contests, the Committee's jurisdiction over federal elections includes federal election administration and campaign finance across the United States.
Rep. Harper will also continue to serve as a member of the Committee on Energy and Commerce, where this past Congress he served on three subcommittees: Environment and the Economy; Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade; and Energy and Power, serving as the vice-chairman of the Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy. He will also continue to serve on the Joint Committee on the Library of Congress and the Joint Committee on Printing.

The First Step In The Home Buying Process - Get A Preapproval

The first step in your home buying process should be to get a preapproval from a bank or lender.  You might check rates from several sources.  Many mortgage bankers have on line websites that can take this information for you.

Information Needed At Application:

1.  Current paystub for each borrower
2.  Two most recent bank statements
3.  Most recent investment account statements (if applicable)
4.  Copy of driver's license
5.  Two most recent tax returns and W2 forms
6.  The lender will ask permission to run a credit report

This will save you time when you know how much home you can afford.

Trendsetting Colors of 2016

Color plays a crucial role in your home's interior. Thankfully it's one of the easiest design elements to change, particularly if you select appliances and other permanent fixtures in classic hues. Is 2016 the year you repaint a few rooms? Here's a look at the latest color trends, as well as tips on how to incorporate them into your home.
The Non-Color
Benjamin Moore's color of the year is white, or Simply White (OC-117) to be exact. This popular neutral can be tough to pull off, especially with hundreds of variations to choose from, many of which have blue, gray or even pink undertones.
Give your kitchen a fresh look by painting upper cabinets white and bottom cabinets a darker or more colorful hue. Or put together a serene all-white bedroom with contrasting textures like natural woods and linens against sleek ceramic or stone.
Pretty Pastels
Color expert Pantone includes pastels in the 2016 interior design color trend forecast. The Ephemera palette, one of nine highlighted color sets, includes soft hues like Tender Yellow, Wan Blue and Pale Peach.
Nervous about using pastels at home? First consider the natural light in the room throughout the day. South-facing rooms bring in bright midday light that heightens both warm and cool colors. West-facing rooms receive a warm evening light, while east-facing rooms have a bluish tint later in the day. Avoid using the same hue as the incoming light; no soft blue in an east-facing room, for instance.
Night Tones
Paint company Akzo Nobel is highlighting the night in response to growing research about the effects of light pollution. The new interest in darkness translates into colors like deep purple or midnight blue -- hues that mimic the tones of both dusk and dawn.
The bedroom is a great place for dramatic color. Incorporate lighter shades of your main hue for depth, bring in touches of white for contrast, and include a heavy dose of gold to evoke the light of the "golden hour" before dusk and after dawn.
