Come and Read It Report
Just last week, the House passed H.R. 3, the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act, which will cut $15 billion in unexpended federal funds. I came to Washington to make fiscally responsible decisions on behalf of Texas’ 25th District, and I was proud to cast my vote in favor of the largest rescissions package in our nation’s history. I will continue working hard to slash government spending and fight to allow Americans to keep more of their money. Americans work too hard to have their tax dollars wasted.
Golden State Foods Comes to Burleson
On Tuesday, I attended the groundbreaking ceremony in Burleson, Texas for Golden State Foods. They will make a great contribution to Texas’ 25th District, as well as the entire state, and it was an honor to join Mayor pro tem Dan McClendon in welcoming the GSF team to our community. I visit Burleson often, and each time the folks who live here are just as warm and generous as the time before. Their commitment to each other, their jobs and their community is infectious - where else can you get a town with family-oriented values alongside this level of economic growth? I know I can speak for everyone when I say how excited we all are to watch Golden State Foods flourish - it was a great day for Burleson and a great day for the State of Texas. I was honored to speak at the groundbreaking that marks a new chapter of their business and I wish them success in their new venture.
Last Monday marked 500 days into President Trump's presidency. We've accomplish big things for all Americans, and we're just getting started.
- Unemployment is at 3.8%, the lowest rate since 2000
- Job openings have reached the highest level in history
- Manufacturing employment is at the highest level in a decade
- 2.7 million new jobs have been created (223,000 just last month)
I'm continuing to work hard with this Congress and the President to make America great, and I'm looking forward to the next 500 days!
Last week: in addition to voting on 21 legislative items, I participated in a Financial Services Committee markup where we advanced six bills to the House floor: H.R. 5783, H.R. 5877, H.R. 5054, H.R. 5756, H.R. 3861, H.R. 4557. If you missed it, you can watch it here.
This week: I'll be participating in a full Financial Services Committee hearing, where we'll receive testimony from Comptroller Joseph Otting from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. I look forward to hearing his thoughts and expertise on current financial industry regulation on Wednesday, June 13 at 9:00am CT. Click here to tune in.
It is an honor and privilege to represent the people of Texas’ 25th Congressional District and as always, please reach out to me with any issues and concerns that are important to you.
In God we trust,
Member of Congress
