It’s crucial for the growth of our nation that we ensure each student has access to high-quality broadband. That’s why I introduced the Eliminate the Digital Divide Act in order to empower states like Texas to utilize broadband networks that best fit the needs of our rural communities.

Last week I had the opportunity to meet with our law enforcement officers, small business owners and local officials across the 25th District where I reaffirm my commitment to our partnership and restoring our Texan way of life by cutting taxes and regulations, and delivering greater relief to our communities.
This month in Los Angeles, our nation witnessed the war on police in action. Fervent calls to “defund the police” have now turned into eliminate the police at any and all costs. Onlookers stood by as an armed gunman approached a police vehicle and shot the two officers sitting inside.

This technology is crucial now more than ever as doctors and physicians have had to adapt to video screenings as opposed to face to face visits due to the virus.
