My Work in TX-25
During the latest district work period I had the opportunity to meet with small business owners, local government officials, and many constituents along the way.

In order for our economy to fully rebound, we must get people back to work and off of the sidelines.

Over 165 days have passed since the SVOG became law and thousands of entertainment venues have still not seen a single dollar from the SBA. You can read our full statement by clicking here.
Cheering on the Cleburne Railroaders
It was a great night watching the Railroaders take on the Houston Apollos. Thank you to Mayor Scott Cain, Gandy the mascot, and to all the players for having me. Go Railroaders!

President Biden recently waived sanctions that prevented Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline from moving forward – benefitting Russia at the expense of U.S. energy resources.

Lake Travis Chamber of Commerce Meeting
I had a productive meeting with the Lake Travis Chamber of Commerce to discuss a variety of issues such as affordable broadband, housing costs, and the ongoing labor shortage.
