WASHINGTON, DC – Today, following the House of Representatives budget vote to fully fund our military, U.S. Representative Will Hurd issued the following statement:

November 6, 2017 Hurd on the Hill

As we approach another Veteran’s Day it is time for me once again to take over the Hurd on the Hill column. As a reintroduction, I am a ten-year army veteran, Purple Heart Recipient, the Director of Constituent Services for Congressman Hurd, and I manage  all military and VA issues, as well as jokingly serve as Will’s “stuntman”. In my first Hurd on the Hill column back in 2015, I thanked my fellow veterans and their families across the 23rd District of Texas for their willingness to answer our country’s call.

September 12, 2017 In The News

To House Republicans who don’t like the funding deal President Donald Trump made with Democrats, Rep. Will Hurd has a message: Get yourself together, or quit complaining.

Otherwise, get used to the feeling of watching the Republican president brag about how much he’s getting done with Chuck and Nancy.

If for some unfathomable reason you are planning to follow a congressman through a baking-hot Texas summer, I recommend you choose Will Hurd. He’s personable, mild-mannered, and clearly in command of the issues. Also, he holds many of his town halls in Dairy Queens, so you can cool off with a Blizzard while you wait for the event to start.

Shulkin announced his decision to implement the same Electronic Health Record (EHR) system for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as the Department of Defense (DoD), in an effort to synchronize patients’ healthcare records once they leave the military.

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) and U.S. Representative Will Hurd (TX-23) released the following statements after their bipartisan legislation, the American Law Enforcement Heroes Act, was signed into law by President Trump today.  The legislation prioritizes U.S. Department of Justice Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) grant applications of state and local law enforcement agencies who use that funding to hire military veterans.

Military veterans will get a boost in finding jobs in policing, under a law signed Friday afternoon by President Donald Trump and backed by Texas Sen. John Cornyn.

Cornyn, the Republicans' deputy leader in the Senate, worked with Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota on the measure, along with Rep. Will Hurd, R-San Antonio.

"We love our veterans. They're serving overseas. They're in harm's way. ... They've been protecting us. We're going to be helping them right now," Trump, flanked by police and other law enforcement, said as he signed the law.

May 29, 2017 Hurd on the Hill

With Fort Bliss to the West, Joint Base San Antonio to the East and Laughlin Air Force Base in between, the 23rd Congressional District of Texas has a very special relationship with our nation’s military. For Memorial Day, there is an abundance of parades, concerts and commemorative events to honor those who did not return home because they made the ultimate sacrifice -- giving their lives to defend our freedoms.

For many people in my district, remembering the fallen doesn’t happen just one day of the year.
