4 Year Anniversary of the Congressional Baseball Shooting

Dear Texans,

This week marked the four year anniversary of the congressional baseball shooting. My Republican colleagues and I are forever thankful for the heroic police officers who saved countless lives when a Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire on our morning practice. Their swift action to take down the gunman serves as a reminder we must always support our men and women in blue and stop any efforts to defund or attack our police. If Democrats had their way to defund the police, that morning could have been a lot more deadly.

I recognized this anniversary on the House floor this week. You can watch my full remarks by clicking on the photo below:

Demanding Answers on SVOG Delays

The Small Business Administration's (SBA) rollout of the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant (SVOG) has been plagued by technical challenges and persistent delays. I joined Congresswomen Craig and Houlahan in leading a letter with 200 other members of Congress to SBA Administrator Guzman in requesting answers on what is causing the delays and when businesses can expect to receive these funds.
