Working to Lift the Crude Oil Ban


On April 30th, I spoke at a press conference in Washington, D.C. to voice my support of HR 702, which is a bipartisan piece of legislation that would lift the crude oil ban, and allow the U.S. to benefit from a global marketplace. The lift of the ban would mean hundreds of thousands of jobs--many of which would be in Texas.

Meeting with Rio Grande Valley Coalition

On May 4, my southern district outreach coordinator Nichole Hernandez met with the Rio Grande Valley Coalition to discuss a valley-wide initiative to help our Veterans in the best way possible by networking with various agencies which are willing to altruistically guide and serve them.
