Washington, DC – The U.S.
San Antonio, TX – U.S Representative Will Hurd of the 23rd Congressional District of Texas released the following statement regarding the letter he submitted to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission(FERC)regarding the proposed Trans-Pecos Pipeline:
Imagine $300 to $1,000 disappearing from your paycheck, despite the fact that you were working the same number of hours you normally do. Your dedication and work habits have not changed. The rigors of the job have remained the same. You’ve done nothing to merit the decrease and have little ability to fix it. Frustrating. For some families, possibly devastating.
