Brady: Inspired by trip to Reagan Ranch

This past weekend I toured former President Ronald Reagan's ranch in the mountains near Santa Barbara, California. Beautifully preserved for future generations by the Young America's Foundation, this modest cabin that President Reagan so loved served as the 'Western White House' for his two terms in office. It was the setting for numerous historic visits, including the signing of Reagan's historic budget and tax cuts in 1981.

Texas Travel Round-Up

Issues: 

There’s no place like Texas, and the Senate’s April recess was a great opportunity for me to visit many parts of our great state. In just a few weeks, I was able to meet with hundreds of Texans in ten cities. Here are a few highlights of my travels in Texas over the past two weeks.

Supporting Our Greatest Ally

You will often see me wearing a very special lapel pin. It is a pin with the flag of Texas beside the flag of our nation’s greatest ally, Israel - or as I like to call them, the two Lone Star States. Both states have shown strength in adversity, and an overwhelming connection to their heritage and history. I am proud that Texas is a fierce friend of Israel, and I will always stand with Israel in solidarity.

What Pro-Growth Tax Reform Means for Workers and Families

Issues:

Working Across the District

When I’m not in Washington, I like to make sure I’m up-to-date on what’s going on in the area. Last week, I did this by meeting with constituents, students and teachers, local leaders, business owners, employees and Texas National Guard members. I spent the early part of last week in the Corpus Christi area, and the second half of the week in the northern area of the district.

Cornyn, Cuellar Praise Selection of Four Texas Ports for Public-Private Partnerships

Issues: 

U.S. Representative Henry Cuellar (TX-28) and I released the following statements after U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced the Anzalduas Bridge, Cameron County, the City of Donna, Texas, and the city of Laredo, Texas were selected for Public-Private Partnerships.

Rep. Poe Cosponsors Bill to Protect Religious Institutions; Condemns Threats Against Jewish Community Centers

Issues: 

I cosponsored bipartisan legislation, the Combating Anti-Semitism Act of 2017, introduced by Reps. David Kustoff (R-TN) and Derek Kilmer (D-WA) today. This legislation would increase the federal penalty for bomb threats and other credible threats of violence against community religious centers and ensure these acts can be prosecuted as a hate crime.

Can We Learn From the O’Reilly Fiasco?

Issues: 

I have no idea whether Bill O’Reilly is guilty or innocent of the charges against him.

Either way, his fall — given that he topped the cable news programs for over 15 years — was incredibly swift.

I myself never much cared for him, for the exact reason that a lot of people liked him: he didn’t seem to have much of a philosophy, as opposed to a series of isolated, ad hoc positions.

Perryman: The Economic and Fiscal Price of Restricting Bathroom Access

Travel and tourism is an important source of economic activity. Every year, millions of visitors to Texas spend billions of dollars in the state, and hundreds of thousands of individuals across Texas are employed in travel-related industries.
