Dear Texans,

Last week, I was humbled to be with our nation's service members and veterans on Fort Hood for this year's National POW/MIA Day of Recognition. I had the opportunity to address our Armed Forces and their families, and thank them for their valor and selflessness, as well as remember those who are still unaccounted for. 

Our nation is truly exceptional, and that is attributed to our heroes in uniform who give everything for the freedoms we take for granted. The men and women who choose to answer our nation's highest calling are an elite group who are more than worthy of our praise and regard. While many of our soldiers return home, there are some who do not. We must continue to work our hardest to account for the warriors who haven't come back, and let their families know that they have not been forgotten.

WOTUS Rule Update 

The Water of the United States (WOTUS) Rule has brought unnecessary hardships to rural communities in our district, and around the nation, and I have been actively fighting against it since its inception. I am pleased to see it has been blocked in Texas, pending judicial review. This is a win for the agriculture industry. 

Legislative Update 

This week: the House is returning to Washington tomorrow for a full legislative week. I will be participating in three Financial Services Committee hearings starting Wednesday at 1:00pm CT, where we will be discussing administration goals for major sanction programs. We also have a hearing on Thursday that you can livestream here, and another subcommittee hearing on Friday to examine opportunities for financial markets in the digital era. 

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,

Roger Williams

Member of Congress
