This week the House passed two measures to roll back the teacher preparation rule and the accountability rule imposed in the waning days of the Obama Administration. I proudly voted to roll back these two last minute rules to cut through unnecessary bureaucratic red tape that is strangling our teachers and hindering their ability to effectively and proficiently teach our students.
This week I proudly voted to disapprove five unnecessary and harmful rules that were enforced in the waning days of the Obama Administration.
This morning I was honored to join Americans from across the country at our nation’s Capitol to celebrate the peaceful transfer of power to the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J.

Today the House Republican Conference ratified the nominations for Committee Chairmanships and I am honored to serve as the Chairman of the House Committee on Rules for the 115th Congress.

During this season of thanks may we join our family, friends, and fellow Americans in reflecting upon the invaluable contributions of the men and women who serve in the United States military at home and around the world.
Last week Americans across the country sent a resounding message to Washington we need a change. North Texans and Americans are tired of lackluster economic growth, tired of hundreds of rules and regulations straining job growth, and tired of unelected bureaucrats in Washington dictating their lives.
Today we honor our nation’s veterans, from the soldiers who heeded the call to battle in World War I, to the members of the greatest generation who stormed the beaches of Normandy, to all of the brave men and women who have fought to preserve our freedom both at home and abroad.
During this District Work period I had the opportunity to meet with local leaders about North Texas water issues, discuss economic development in Sachse, and more. I always value listening to the input of my constituents across the district and learning how I can help make life better for all North Texans.
