Congressman Pete Sessions Visits General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems facility

Last week, I visited the General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems facility in Garland. While I was there I met with the General Manager and learned about the products that General Dynamics provides the U.S. military for all levels of strategic and tactical operations. They shared with me their concerns regarding regulations that strain their business and hinder them from being able to plan their finances for the future.

Businesses need laws that give them the certainty they need to grow their businesses, which is why I proudly support legislation that will permanently extend bonus depreciation to ensure that American companies can more easily plan for the future. I will continue to support these common sense solutions to ensure that businesses like General Dynamics will continue to thrive, create jobs, and serve as an integral part of the North Texas economy.   Read more »

New reformers needed to curb the lawsuit abuse killing jobs in California

Joblessness and poverty in California are more severe than just about anywhere in America.

In an election year, this is a reality incumbents tend to gloss over. California’s improving, they say, so keep us in charge.

For the millions of Californians suffering in poverty, can’t find a job, or are underemployed, these assurances don’t go very far. Real hope requires job growth, and that means growing small businesses.   Read more »

Time to Remove Roadblocks to Energy Trade

The following was written by Congressman Joe Barton (TX-6):

America’s new found energy abundance creates incredible opportunities, but old laws are getting in the way of economic growth and the chance to strengthen security here and abroad.

Our nation is blessed with a bounty of natural resources, but until recently much of it remained out of reach.

The Conservative Case for Immigration Reform

The debate over immigration reform, intensified by the surge of unaccompanied child migrants at the U.S.–Mexico border, has many conservatives worried. Republican strategist Lanhee Chen explained that conservative opposition to immigration reform in the United States “is a very visceral reaction to what America should be about.” According to conservative opponents of immigration reform, immigrants will change America.   Read more »

Obama Backs Corporate Welfare

To most Americans, the words "Export-Import Bank" don't mean very much. The DC insiders, cozy with international corporate interests putting taxpayers on the hook for hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies, want to keep it that way, too.

The Export-Import Bank is big businesses' big-government bank backed by U.S. taxpayers.

Pelosi Exposed, as are the Democrats

Nancy Pelosi may have staved off age on her face, but when she came “charging” across the House floor to wag her finger at Rep. Tom Marino, she did it at break-neck glacial speed.

In this video you can see Pelosi looks like she’s walking over hot coals.   Read more »

Pete Sessions Statement on July Jobs Report

Today I released the following statement regarding the July unemployment report:

While it is always welcome news when additional Americans are able to find work, all Americans deserve the opportunity to find good-paying, full-time jobs. The Obama Administration has repeatedly promised a big economic recovery, but it has taken six years to see any real signs of reliable

Job-Luring Funds Go Under the Microscope at the Texas Capitol

The special Texas House committee appointed by Speaker Joe Straus to scrutinize Gov. Perry’s job-luring pots of money – chiefly the Texas Enterprise Fund – got down to work last Wednesday. In its first hearing, the House Select Committee on Economic Development Incentives listened to expert witnesses for and against the incentives that were called everything from “interstate job piracy” to essential “tools in the toolbox” for continuation of the state’s dynamic economic growth.

Chair of the committee, Rep. Angie Chen Button, R-Richardson, stressed that while Texas has been a dominant
