  • Lawmakers Introduce Bill to Jump Start Overdue Maintenance Projects in National Parks

    “National Parks are a part of the American experience and the seven in my district, including Big Bend and the San Antonio Missions, provide immeasurable cultural, environmental and economic benefits. We have a responsibility as a nation to care for these treasures, yet in Texas alone, there are roughly $147 million in backlogged National Park maintenance projects,” said U.S. Representative Will Hurd. “This bill will provide more flexible financing options and revenue sources so that our parks can remain beautiful and accessible for future generations of park-goers to enjoy.”

  • Hurd on the Hill: Battling the Bureaucracy

    While IT isn’t the most exciting topic for everyone, this issue has more of an impact on your lives than you might realize. Billions of your hard-earned taxpayer dollars are wasted maintaining outdated and obsolete government IT systems that are not just costly, but also vulnerable to cyberattacks. That’s why in Congress I have prioritized increased accountability, and have been working with my colleagues to improve our information security and keep our spending to a minimum.
