The Week in Texas
Last week I had the opportunity to meet with our law enforcement officers, small business owners and local officials across the 25th District where I reaffirm my commitment to our partnership and restoring our Texan way of life by cutting taxes and regulations, and delivering greater relief to our communities.
Part of an all-of-the-above approach to moving our nation forward and restoring our way of life means investing in pro-growth, pro-America policies. I’m proud to introduce the Incentivize Energy-Saving Improvements Act, which would make permanent part of our tax code that offsets the high costs of systems and components that make health care and residential facilities more energy efficient.
Energy efficient systems help reduce a building’s energy consumption, but the upfront costs associated with these investments are often too high to be economically feasible. My bill would permanently offset these costs and continue moving the U.S. closer to energy independence while preserving hundreds of thousands of jobs nationwide.
It is the privilege of a lifetime to serve you and I will always work toward creating a better stronger, better future for all Texans. Take a look below at my week in TX-25:
It was great to meet with newly-sworn in Dripping Springs Mayor Bill Foulds. I look forward to our continued partnership serving Texans in the Dripping Springs community.
Thank you to Lisa and Mike for the tour of Learning Express Toys in Bee Cave. Small businesses like theirs in TX-25 are the backbone of our economy. So they can rebound even quicker from COVID-19, I’m committed to cutting taxes and regulations to allow for more growth and freedom.
I had the opportunity to meet UT Austin President Jay Hartzell this week as students begin the fall semester. I look forward to our continued partnership serving the 25th District community.
It was a privilege speaking to the Tuesday Forum in Cleburne. Texas small businesses are the heartbeat of our economy and I’ll continue doing all I can to help Main Street rebound from COVID-19 so America can emerge stronger than ever.
I had the opportunity to meet with the Johnson County Association of Realtors and give an update on my work in Washington along with an economic outlook. Historically low interest rates have our economy set to rebound and I am committed to keeping the momentum moving forward as we emerge from the pandemic.
While we’re facing a unique challenge this year, I remain focused on providing solutions to restore, rebuild and renew our Texan way of life. It was great to join the Glen Rose Lions Club to discuss our economy and the next steps in recovery from the pandemic.
I’m proud to support our law enforcement officers who answer the call to serve and honorably wear their badge. We had a great dialogue in Somervell County discussing how we can work together to keep our communities safe and make investments that equip them to best serve Texans.
I’m proud to support our Hill County law enforcement, and I will always stand with the men and women who protect our families and neighborhoods. It was great to join them for a roundtable discussion about how we can partner with officers to serve our TX-25 communities.
