Congressman Adam Smith

Representing the 9th District of Washington
  • Veterans History Project

    Our veterans have served this nation bravely and heroically. We owe these men and women an enormous debt of gratitude and respect. To honor our veteran's service, my office has partnered with the Library of Congress Veterans History Project and will be continually recording oral histories from veterans in our community through the year in my Renton, District Office.

    Over the last few years, and especially in the past several months, I have seen an extraordinary level of engagement from the American people. In fact, in all my years as a legislator, I have never seen this level of involvement from constituents. This is a promising sign for the vitality of our civic culture and I hope I continue to see this level of participation as we move forward.

Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Act Passes The House

Jul 16, 2018

The passage of the Mountains to Sound Greenway National Heritage Act, the first such designation in the Pacific Northwest, reflects the sustainable relationship between Washington state residents and nature in the Puget Sound Region. The Mountains to Sound Greenway will help preserve and promote the area’s scenery, resources and history for future generations. I thank Congressman Dave Reichert for his stalwart leadership, the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust for their tireless advocacy, and the engaged community members that made it possible for us to join together in preserving this natural treasure.

Keep Families Together Floor Speech

Jul 16, 2018

On June 13th, I took to the House Floor to join my colleagues in condemning the Trump Administration’s unconscionable policy of separating families seeking asylum. These families are fleeing unlivable conditions in a variety of countries throughout Latin America. To have a policy of separating parents from their children is inhumane and goes against every value we as Americans hold dear. You can watch my full remarks below.

Adam Smith Discusses the NATO Summit, Trump - Putin, and More With CNN

Jul 16, 2018

"It appears that the president is trying to reorient U.S. foreign policy towards Russia and away from our democratic allies in Europe. And that's deeply troubling, given all that Russia is doing to undermine democracy throughout Europe and our country and a lot of other places. "I believe the president is lining us up with an authoritarian dictator, instead of with democracies that promote economic and political freedom. I don't think that's what the United States should stand for. And I don't think it's in our long-term best interests in terms of our policy." Watch House Armed Services Committee Ranking Member Adam Smith discuss the upcoming NATO summit, President Trump's meeting with Vladimir Putin, immigration, and much more right here.
