Local Congressman Sees More Bipartisanship in D.C.
Most people think of Washington D.C. divided sharply along political lines. But Republican Congressman, Jim Gerlach thinks there is opportunity for some bipartisanship during the months ahead.
“We might see some bipartisanship coming sooner than later on a new farm bill and we may see some cooperation on a up coming transportation bill.”
Gerlach says, Republicans in Congress and the Democratic Administration might be able to find common ground on tax reform.
