Conaway Chronicle: Preserving Presidential Papers for Research, Fighting Against the Windfall Elimination Provision, Town Hall Recap

Thank you for reading The Conaway Chronicle, a review of my activities in Congress and the 11th District. 

Preserving Presidential Papers for Research

Monday, I presented a collection of the Public Papers of the President to the John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute Presidential Archives and Leadership Library. The papers, donated by the United States Library of Congress, include 18 volumes from President George W. Bush, 17 volumes from President William J. Clinton, and two volumes each from Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush.

Presidential Papers such as these contain most of these President’s public messages, statements, speeches, news conference remarks and memos. The JBS Presidential Archives and Leadership Library will serve as an excellent home for these documents, and give students and researchers the opportunity to learn more about these Presidents who have shaped the history of this country. 

Fighting Against the Windfall Elimination Provision

Many educators have been harmed by the unintended consequences of the Windfall Elimination Provision. I recently gave a speech on the House Floor to call attention to the fact that teachers across Texas are being denied the ability to collect their deserved Social Security benefits that they have earned through outside employment.

Town Hall Recap

It's been a great week in the 11th District. We held town halls in Brady, Comanche, and Menard, and heard from constituents about everything from health care to immigration to tax reform.

Town halls are an essential part of my efforts to stay in touch with constituents, and I appreciate everyone taking the time out of their day to participate and have your voice heard.

As always, you can follow me on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
