Explanation from Shimkus appreciated

March 9, 2014 

Thanks to U.S. Rep. John Shimkus for his explanation on how he voted on two measures in the House recently. I wish all legislators would explain their actions clearly and logically as did Shimkus. If so, greater progress could be made in Congress and people would understand better.
