Kelly sees first bill clear U.S. House

The first bill authored by the region’s freshman congressman has passed the U.S. House of Representatives.

Rep. Trent Kelly, a Republican, introduced the legislation, H.R. 4332, in January. It passed the House Tuesday on a voice vote.

Kelly has now been in office almost a year after winning a special election last June. In November’s election, he’ll stand for a full term, facing Democratic opponent Jacob Owens.

H.R. 4332 is intended to ensure that small businesses have an opportunity to competitively bid for federal contracts, according to Kelly.
