The North Carolina House Speaker met with President Donald Trump Monday at the State House Speakers Conference in Washington.
House Speaker Rep. Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) joined speakers from state legislatures across the nation to be briefed on Trump’s policy initiatives at the White House.
The White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs hosted the conference where Trump’s senior administration officials briefed Moore and the other legislators on the President’s priorities.
“I appreciate the White House’s outreach to state governments and support of our citizens in North Carolina and across the United States,” Moore said.
The goal of the conference was to connect state officials with federal officials to improve collaboration among state, local and federal agencies.
Those in attendance from the Trump administration included Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, Senior Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, intergovernmental directors from more than 20 federal agencies.
During the conference topics discussed included federalism, housing, opioids, homelessness, deregulation, workforce development, the farm bill, rural businesses, broadband, opportunity zones, veterans legislation, infrastructure, treatment, health care and foreign trade.
“Thanks to President Trump and Vice President Pence for the opportunity to share ideas among state legislative leaders and work together for the success of our constituents,” Moore said. “Our nation is fortunate to have leaders focused on the prosperity of our people who are working hard to make a living, raise a family and realize the American dream.”
Attendees joined Trump to celebrate NASCAR Cup Series Champion Martin Truex Jr. and his team at the White House on Monday afternoon following the conference.
