From kindergarten through college at Texas A&M, I’m a proud product of the Texas public education system. I was fortunate to attend schools with dedicated teachers and my parents took my education very seriously. But not every child is as lucky as I was.
Washington, D.C. - Congresman Will Hurd, the U.S. Representative for the 23rd District of Texas, released the following statement following his vote for the Keystone XL Pipeline Approval Act, encouraging President Barack Obama to sign the legislation into law:
A little more than six years ago an application for the project known as the Keystone XL Pipeline was filed with the U.S. government. A lot can happen in six years.

Washington, D.C. - The U.S. House of Representatives today passed several strongly bipartisan bills focused on ending human trafficking. A roughly $10 billion industry in the United States, Texas trails only behind California with the highest number of reported human trafficking cases.
I firmly believe that if people in Washington are going to write the laws about securing our border, they should spend some time down here and talk to the men and women who risk their lives every day to protect our nation. That’s why I joined my fellow Texas Congressman Mike McCaul this weekend as he led a delegation of members of Congress on tours of our southwest border.
Washington, D.C. - Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) will join other members of Congress on a tour of the southwest border this weekend, led by fellow Texan and Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, Congressman Mike McCaul.
