Congressman Will Hurd

Representing the 23rd District of Texas

Hurd on the Hill

April 17, 2017 Hurd on the Hill

The privilege of representing the constituents of the 23rd District doesn’t stop when the House of Representatives is not voting. With no votes taking place in Washington, DC, I’m capitalizing on this district work period by connecting with folks all across the twenty-nine counties of the 23rd Congressional District of Texas. This is my favorite part of the job.

It all started with a cancelled flight due to inclement weather. Thirty-six hours and more than 1,600 miles later, Congressman Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat from El Paso, and I, a Republican from San Antonio, had driven in a Chevy Impala across the country to Washington, DC.

Last week, I hosted my thirteenth live telephone town hall meeting in the last two years. Although they are no substitute for the 50-plus in-person town halls and more than 400 public events I have also led, telephone town hall meetings have allowed me to communicate with over 630,000 constituents since 2015.

When not working in DC, you can find me traveling to one of the communities in the twenty-nine counties across the 23rd Congressional District of Texas, to meet with constituents and learn about the issues most important to you. Sometimes I stop in half-a-dozen or more towns before flying back to DC on Monday.

The last thing my constituents want is more vague and confusing government regulations that come at the expense of hardworking families and small businesses. But a punishing, ever-increasing morass of red tape forces small and family-owned businesses to spend countless hours, dollars and resources on compliance, instead of doing what they do best – build their business.

“What’s the point of having health insurance anymore?”

I’m often asked this question by constituents who are pummeled by out-of-pocket costs under Obamacare.

As we welcome a new year and a new legislative session, my team and I are ready for another successful term.

Coding is the language of the 21st Century economy. If our students can’t speak it, they will be left behind. We must do a better job preparing our students for the jobs that don’t exist yet—and we’ve got to start at an earlier age.

As chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, I am excited about our opportunity to finally deliver comprehensive tax reform that will empower small businesses in Texas and across the country. America's small businesses embody the best of who we are as a nation and the promise of who we can be.
