Happy Friday and Happy New Year! We’re celebrating the start of 2022 with a round-up of some of the best moments from conservative women in government this week.

Nancy Mace introduces legislation to combat veteran homelessness 

Representatives Nancy Mace (SC-01) and Derek Kilmer (WA-06) announced their bipartisan effort to support homeless veterans through the building of “tiny home” communities. The bill seeks to “expand on the VA’s existing Grant and Per Diem (GDP) program by creating a pilot program that provide recipients money to build ‘individualized and sustainable tiny homes in villages.’” The bill offers a new approach to the longstanding issue, though it is still in its early stages and will need to pass through both houses of Congress.

Joni Ernst champions bipartisan effort to construct new memorial at National Mall

Senator Ernst of Iowa, along with Senator Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire, led the effort to build a memorial on the National Mall in honor of those who served during the war on terror. Ernst, a veteran, has long since been involved in this initiative; in 2017, she supported the creation of a private foundation to pursue the project. The project was approved by the president at the end of last year, though a location and timeline for the construction are still in the works.

Elise Stefanik’s EPAC announces first senate endorsement of 2022

E-PAC, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik’s organization dedicated to getting more women elected to Congress, endorsed its first senate candidate of the 2022 election cycle, Jane Timken of Ohio. Stefanik called Timken a “leader with integrity who will represent our Party proudly in Washington.” Timken celebrated the endorsement and the potential of working with Stefanik, saying, “I look forward to standing shoulder to shoulder with her as we fire Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and usher in a stronger, more prosperous America for all.” 

Bonus: Michelle Steel cheers on friend and fellow congresswoman Young Kim

We love to see it: On New Year’s Eve, Congresswoman Michelle Steel (CA-48) tweeted out her excitement to run for reelection alongside Congresswoman Young Kim (CA-39). The first Korean-American women to serve in Congress, Steel and Kim–also longtime friends–made history in 2020. Steel celebrated their success and concluded her post by noting, “Next year, we’ll do it again.” Here, here!
