On this week’s edition of Newsmaker Sunday with Local 5’s Tom Zalaski, Congressman Gallagher sat down to talk about a number of issues like a new bill he is pushing that would repurpose unemployment insurance.

Rep. Gallagher was recently named a ranking member of the subcommittee on Military Personnel and as a vet, he spoke about what he believes he can bring to that role as a veteran.

Another popular topic he spoke about was the political division that is happening in the Senate with a nearly 50/50 split between the two parties.
