Congressional Report


Dear Friends,

I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday weekend. This year, we not only paid tribute to the working Americans who are the backbone of our economy, but we also recognized our essential workers who have made sacrifice so much to help our nation through this unprecedented pandemic. As we continue to move forward, I am committed to making sure Americans have access to good-paying jobs to provide a better life for themselves and their families.

In the district, I took part in various press conferences and events, including a press call to discuss the updates on Fort Hood’s missing soldiers as well as the Army's response. I also announced federal funding to public housing authorities and health centers in our community. 

My staff in the District attended several events, including a celebration for a constiuent's 100th birthday as well as a funeral procession for Mission Police Officer Jorge Cabrera.

As always, if you need help with a federal agency, please contact one of my offices:

Stay safe. Stay strong.


Announced Federal Funding to Local Health Centers


   
This week, I announced federal funds to both Gateway Community Health Center and Atascosa Health Center. Specifically, Gateway received $291,264 and Atascosa Health Center recieved $250,893 in federal funding. These funds will be critical in helping both health centers provide essential care to the counties they serve.

Gateway serves communities in Webb and Zapata Counties; Atascosa Health Center serves communities in Atascosa, McMullen, Wilson Counties. For more information you can visit their websites or follow them on social media. 

Gave Updates on Fort Hood with Members of LULAC
   
On Thursday, September 4th, I held a press conference with members of LULAC to discuss the latest updates from Secretary of the Army and Chief of Staff of the Army on their investigation into Fort Hood and why so many soldiers have gone missing.  

I am encouraged that after my conversation with Secretary McCarthy and General McConville last week, the Army is moving swiftly to launch a more complete and comprehensive investigation that will delve into all activities and levels of leadership at Fort Hood.
