The Next Generation
Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to catch up on the news from Texas' 31st district. One of my favorite parts of my job is visiting with young people and hearing what matters to them. I had the opportunity to virtually visit with high school students from Rogers ISD to talk about the work I do in Congress.These students had great questions about education policy, legislative priorities, and working with my colleagues on the other side of the aisle.
I met with Lt. Gen Pat White, III Corps and Fort Hood commanding general, last week to discuss III Corps Headquarters deployment to the Middle East to defeat ISIS. During the year-long deployment, service members were in Iraq, Syria, Kuwait, Jordan and Turkey and the coalition liberated eight millionpeople from under the tyranny of ISIS.

Also, today is National Day of the Deployed. It’s a day to honor those that have been deployed or are currently deployed and their families. We owe each service member and their families a debt of a gratitude for the sacrifices they’ve made for our freedoms. God Bless Our Troops!
Protecting Our Justice System
I joined my Democrat colleague, Representative Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) in introducing the Daniel Anderl Judicial Security and Privacy Act of 2020 in the House this week. This legislation, named for federal judge Esther Salas’ son who was brutally murdered during a home invasion, would safeguard identifiable information of federal judges. A judge’s ruling can alter lives forever and it’s important judges feel safe to make the legally appropriate decision without fear of retribution. Keeping a federal judge’s information private strengthens our justice system, protects judicial independence, and increases safety.
Last week, I asked you about the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the United States Supreme Court. Over 73% of you said that you watched Judge Barrett's Senate confirmation hearing and 57% of you support her nomination.
As always, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to stay up to date on what’s happening in Texas’ 31st congressional district. Be sure to follow my Facebook and Twitter accounts for updates.
