Dear Texans,

Last week, I had the opportunity to meet with Lakeway's new Mayor, Sandy Cox, Lakeway City Manager Steve Jones, and Bee Cave's new Mayor, Monty Parker. It was great to catch up and listen to their ideas that I can take back with me to Washington that will benefit Texans in our great district.

Tax Reform Update

As we move into July, it's important to look back on all the progress the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has made in the economy recently. Businesses added approximately 213,000 jobs in June - that's 213,000 more possibilities for Americans who want to get back into the workforce and provide for their families. According to the jobs report, the economy has added more jobs every month - we're currently experiencing the longest streak on record. Click here for more information.
