Like millions of Texans in my district and throughout the state, I have been without electricity since early Monday morning. While my family and I are safely working through this situation, others are not so fortunate and experiencing long periods of freezing temperatures in their homes.
First and foremost, I want you to know that our entire staff is working round the clock with federal, state, and local officials in the district as we continue dealing with coronavirus. As always, please reach out to our Washington, D.C.
