The Congressional Baseball Game is one of the oldest traditions in Congress that transcends party lines and allows Members of the House and Senate to enjoy America’s favorite pastime together.
For the past eight years Democrats forced Americans to comply with hundreds of new regulations that strained our economy and decimated job creation.

As we celebrate National Police Week I would like to extend a special thank you to the men and women in the law enforcement community who make endless sacrifices to protect our families and neighborhoods.
Aside from a few rainy days, it has been a beautiful week in North Texas. During this District Work Period I had the opportunity to visit with students, police officers, young professionals, airmen, medical professionals, and more.
Today the House passed a short-term funding measure through May 5th. While this is not ideal, I support this effort to provide our colleagues with more time to reach a final agreement on legislation to fund thegovernment through the fiscal.
It is always an honor to meet with North Texans across the district to learn how I can help them with issues they are facing personally or issues that are impacting all of us on the national stage.
