Congressional Report

Dear friends,

Please take a moment to read my latest update from Washington and Texas Congressional District 28.

In this week's congressional report, you will see that I recently met with students from my district in Washington and also hosted a live video conference on cybersecurity for constituents throughout my district. My district offices also met with several agencies and community representatives to discuss ways in which we can better serve our communities. You'll also find an intern spotlight from one of my summer interns in D.C., Ivana Khaledi, and some safe bicycling tips from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
