WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today issued the following statement after voting in favor of a bill to give a grace period from compliance of a federal regulation to consumers looking to purchase a home through a mortgage assistance program:
“This legislation is pure common sense. By delaying the required date of compliance of the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure Rule, homebuyers will be better equipped to apply for a mortgage, and the federal government will be able to halt implementation of this rule to ensure it is being administered effectively and efficiently. More knowledge and data about the challenges that exist when implementing this disclosure can only be seen as a positive. Any measure that allows American families to own their own homes and eases the burden of inefficient federal regulations is something we should all be for.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today issued the following statement after voting in favor of a measure that would create a select panel within the Energy and Commerce Committee for the purposes of investigating abortion practices and the policies surrounding fetal tissue procurement:
“As a father, I have always strongly believed that every effort should be made to protect and honor the sanctity of all human life. The troubling Planned Parenthood videos released earlier this year have prompted the Committees of jurisdiction to conduct robust investigations into these barbaric practices, but they have come up with more questions than answers. A select panel – whose sole purpose is to examine these important issues and uncover facts – is necessary to ensure we as a Congress are doing all we can to promote lawfulness and to protect the lives of those who cannot protect themselves.”

This week Congress was once again faced with the task of passing a short term resolution to keep our government running. This vote was yet another reminder that the House must return to regular order so we can do the job that the American people sent us to do.
While I believe it is critical that we fund the government, I could not support this stop-gap measure because it did not put an end to taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. Since the horrific Planned Parenthood videos came to light this summer, I have heard from North Texans and shared in their disgust with this organization’s alleged behavior. As a father and a fierce defender of all precious, I believe it is critical that we put an end to these gruesome practices.
Fighting to Protect Life
On Thursday I proudly supported the passage of H.R. 3495, the Women’s Public Health and Safety Act. This legislation empowers states to choose to withhold Medicaid funds from flowing to abortion provider. In Texas, we have seen great success since our 2011 decision to exclude abortion providers form the Medicaid Women’s Health Program, including a consistent decline in pregnancy rates since that same year. I believe that we must make every effort to protect and honor the sanctity of life and this bill gives the states the flexibility they need to do just that.
Providing Resources for the Bravest Among Us
This week the House passed the FY 2015 National Defense Authorization Act conference report, which will authorize critical funding to America’s military. This bill provides the resources necessary for a strong national defense in a fiscally responsible way. Our servicemen and women bravely put their lives on the line to protect our great nation and I was proud to support this legislation to ensure they have the tools and resources they need.
Holding Iran Accountable
Since the so-called Iran nuclear deal was unveiled, I have expressed my opposition to this disastrous deal. I believe it is a dangerous mistake to reward the largest state sponsor of terrorism with billions of dollars in sanctions relief, especially when they owe $43.5 billion in damages to victims in the United States. It is unfathomable that President Obama would take steps to pump money into Iran’s economy before innocent Americans have received what they are owed from Iran. H.R. 3457, the Justice for Victims of Iranian Terrorism Act, stops sanctions from being lifted against Iran until they have paid every cent of these damages. I believe this legislation is an important step toward reversing the dangerous course that this Administration has put on and that is why I proudly supported this piece of legislation.
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX-32), Chairman of the House Rules Committee and a Member of House Republican Leadership, today released the following statement regarding the September unemployment report:
“Today’s disappointing jobs report shows that the so-called recovery over the last six years continues to be hampered by President Obama's big government liberal policies. Real, sustainable economic growth can only be led by the free market, not by Washington. America's families and small businesses deserve better.
“I believe we can and must do more to pave the way for hard-working families to achieve the American dream. I remain committed to working to implement common sense conservative solutions to put Americans back to work.”
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today issued the following statement after House passage of a bill that prohibits the lifting of economic sanctions against Iran until it pays court-ordered damages owed to terror victims:
“The Obama administration’s so-called deal with Iran is no deal at all. Rather, it is a gift to a country that has a long history of state-sponsored terror. It is an unfortunate reality that the victims of such terror are still owed legal damages amounting to $43 billion. I am adamantly opposed to this “deal,” and it is unfathomable that the president would take steps to pump money into Iran’s economy before innocent Americans have received from Iran what they are owed. This common sense piece of legislation stops sanctions from being lifted against Iran until these damages are paid, and it is a step toward reversing course on the President’s historic mistake.”

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today issued the following statement after House passage of a bill to provide necessary resources to continue essential military efforts abroad:
“The House today passed the FY16 NDAA conference report, which will authorize critical funding to America’s military and ensures that the bravest among us have the resources they need. The Constitution calls on us to “provide for the common defense” and the House acted to do just that. It is my duty and honor to make sure our armed forces are taken care of, and I urge President Obama to sign this bill.”

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX-32), Chairman of the House Rules Committee and a Member of House Republican Leadership, today released the following statement regarding the Continuing Resolution for fiscal year 2016:
“Today the House was once again faced with the task of passing a short term resolution to keep our government running. This vote is yet another reminder that the House must return to regular order to prevent having to rely on these last minute patchwork funding bills.
“While I believe it is critical that we fund the government, I could not support this stop-gap measure because it did not put an end to taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. Since the horrific Planned Parenthood videos came to light this summer, I have shared the public's disgust with this organization’s alleged behavior. As a father and a staunch defender of all life, I believe it is imperative that we put an end to these gruesome practices. "
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today issued the following statement after voting in favor of a measure that would provide for greater flexibility among states to exclude abortion providers from using Medicaid funds:
“As a father, I have always strongly believed that every effort should be made to protect and honor the sanctity of all human life. In light of the barbaric Planned Parenthood videos released earlier this year, it is more important than ever that states be empowered to choose to withhold Medicaid funds from flowing to providers of abortion if they so choose. We have seen great success in this realm in my home state of Texas since our 2011 decision to exclude abortion providers from the Medicaid Women’s Health Program, including a consistent decline in pregnancy rates since that same year. It is my sincere hope that this law is passed so that other states may too have the flexibility they are entitled to under the tenants of federalism in the Constitution.”

This week I had the opportunity to meet with community and business leaders in North Texas to discuss important issues facing the 32nd Congressional District. I was delighted to spend time with them and learn more about how we can work together to tackle these important issues.
Meetings with North Texans
Wylie Chamber of Commerce
On Tuesday I was pleased to participate in the Wylie Chamber of Commerce Annual Legislative Breakfast to discuss the important conservative legislation that the House has passed this year. This year the House has passed legislation to create jobs, protect our borders and strengthen interior enforcement, significantly cut funding to the EPA and IRS, and repeal some of the most onerous parts of ObamaCare including repealing SGR and restoring the 40-hour work week. In addition to discussing our legislative achievements I also discussed the legislative agenda for the rest of the year.
Congressman Sessions giving members of the Wylie Chamber of Commerce a legislative update
BBVA Compass Employee Town Hall
This week I also had the opportunity to talk with employees at BBVA Compass in Dallas to discuss my commitment to creating a pro-growth environment to let the free-enterprise system grow and thrive. I believe this Administration’s policies have saddled businesses with unnecessary, onerous regulations that have strangled economic growth and stymied job creation.
Congressman Sessions talking with BBVA employees
Joint Session of Congress with His Holiness, Pope Francis
This week Pope Francis made a historic visit to the United States and delivered a powerful speech to Members of Congress during his Joint Session Address. During the Pope’s speech he respectfully delivered his sentiments of unity, compassion, and responsibility. He challenged us as members to embrace our roles as representatives and to implement policies that help all Americans and strengthen our great nation. I am deeply honored that I was able to be a part of such an extraordinary event and I thank His Holiness for blessing our country with his thoughtful remarks.
As a father, I have always strongly believed that every effort should be made to protect and honor the sanctity of all human life. The horrific Planned Parenthood videos released this summer pulled back a curtain that abortion advocates have tried so hard to keep closed that exposes how horrifying these practices can be. It is more important than ever to put an end to the cruelty and barbarism described in detail in these videos. Today I proudly joined my colleagues in the House of Representatives in passing two vital pieces of legislation that protect innocent American lives, H.R. 3134, the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015 and H.R. 3504, the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
Fighting Lawsuit Abuse
This week the House of Representatives also voted on H.R. 758, the Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act. For far too long trial lawyers have exploited legal loopholes that allow them to take advantage of innocent victims. This bill would close those loopholes so that trial lawyers are discouraged from filing frivolous lawsuits that burden Americans and small business owners who have done no harm with onerous legal costs. I proudly supported this legislation to ensure that there are mandatory penalties for those who file lawsuits with baseless claims and to fully compensate victims of frivolous lawsuits in federal courts.
Meetings with Texans
On Wednesday I was delighted to meet Richard Templeton, CEO of Texas Instruments. Based in the heart of the 32nd Congressional District, T.I. entered the semiconductor business in the late 1950’s and today is the third largest manufacturer of semiconductors worldwide with more than 13,000 employees based in the United States. As semiconductor products account for approximately 95% of T.I.’s business, it remains vitally important that Congress is aware of the issues that the industry faces. In my role as co-chair of the Congressional Semiconductor Caucus, I am proud fight on behalf of North Texas businesses to promote this critical American industry.
Congressman Sessions and Richard Templeton, CEO of Texas Instruments
Employee-Owned S Corporations of America
Friday morning I met with small business owners from Texas who represent the Employee-Owned S Corporations of America. In our meeting I received an update on how Texas-based employee-owned companies benefit our state through promoting retirement security, generating positive economic activity, and creating good jobs. The benefits of ESOPs are particularly important given Congress' task of addressing the difficulties plaguing the U.S. economy, working Americans, and their families. I am proud to support these small businesses and look forward to working with my colleagues to preserve and expand employee ownership in S corporations to provide the benefits of this structure to more working Americans.
Congressman Sessions with Justin Holt, Deputy General Counsel of Austin Industries in Dallas
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today issued the following statement after voting in favor of two pro-life measures that would defund Planned Parenthood and prevent an abortion provider from failing to deliver the proper care to an infant who survives an abortion or attempted abortion:
“As a father, I have always strongly believed that every effort should be made to protect and honor the sanctity of all human life. The horrific Planned Parenthood videos released this summer pulled back a curtain that abortion advocates have tried so hard to keep closed that exposes how horrifying these practices can be. As a collectively shocked nation, it is more important than ever to put an end to the cruelty and barbarism described in detail in these videos. Defunding Planned Parenthood – the largest provider of abortions in the United States – is an important step, and I was proud to vote to do that today. Further, I believe we must work tirelessly to fight for the rights of innocent babies who cannot fight for themselves. We have seen individuals who survived abortions live full and healthy lives, which is why I was pleased to support the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act today to ensure we continue to defend our nation’s precious children and save lives.”

Washington, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today issued the following statement on the House’s passage of a bill to improve attorney accountability:
“Across the United States of America there are instances in which lawyers file frivolous lawsuits, taking advantage of our judiciary system in order to make a profit. Many of these lawsuits impact ordinary Americans and small business owners who have done no harm, but are socked with high legal expenses and are forced to spend time away from their families and work fighting meritless claims. This legislation ensures that there are mandatory penalties for those who file lawsuits with legally baseless claims and holds attorneys accountable for their actions. I applaud passage of this important bill and the protections it would give to innocent Americans.”

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX-32), Chairman of the House Rules Committee and a Member of House Republican Leadership, today released the following statement regarding the commencement of National Hispanic Heritage Month, honored September 15 – October 15:
“This month I proudly join my fellow Texans and Americans in honoring National Hispanic Heritage Month. During this month we have the opportunity to pay tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have enriched our communities with their generous culture and invaluable contributions to our society.
“From the arts, to service in the military, to their strong presence in the business community, Hispanic Americans have made an immense impact on the North Texas community and our nation as a whole. The foundation of our great nation was built upon the contributions of individuals with dynamic and diverse cultural backgrounds and I am proud to celebrate their continued contributions that strengthen our country.”
Since the Obama Administration unveiled the Iran nuclear deal in July, the majority of Americans and Members of Congress have expressed their complete opposition to this disastrous deal. There is no reason why America should reward a terrorist state that cries “Death to America,” has vowed to destroy our friend and ally, Israel, and presents a clear danger to the entire world. Members of the House understand the devastating consequences that will come from this deal, which is why we took the time to methodically work through this issue and understand the global implications that could arise because of the president’s irresponsible actions.
Click here to watch a clip of Congressman Sessions managing the rule for the legislation regarding the Iran nuclear deal
This week, I proudly voted on three measures to oppose the Iran nuclear deal. This deal gives the leading sponsor of terrorism access to billions of dollars, legitimizes their efforts to destabilize the Middle East, and puts the entire world in grave danger. I adamantly oppose this deal and I will continue fight to protect the safety and security of our nation and our allies.
Meetings in Washington
American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai
On Thursday, I sat down with members from the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai. As the largest and fastest growing American Chamber of Commerce in the Asia-Pacific region, the Chamber works to promote American commercial interests abroad and ensure American companies doing business in China have access to fair and unbiased business resources. Ultimately, with China rapidly implementing several economic policies of unprecedented scale, backed by tens of billions of dollars in state government financing, it remains vitally important that House Republicans do our upmost to protect American businesses and promote open markets, private enterprise, and the unrestricted flow of information.
Semiconductor Industry Association
Thursday afternoon I met with leadership from the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) to discuss semiconductor production in our country and the future of the industry. As one of our top export industries, semiconductors are vital to U.S. economic strength, technology leadership, and national security. Furthermore, semiconductor innovations form the foundation for America's $1.1 trillion dollar technology industry and supports more than 28,000 jobs in the state of Texas - the second largest semiconductor job market in the nation. Through the SIA, and the newly formed congressional Semiconductor Caucus of which I am a co-chair, we will continue to promote policy that strengthens U.S. leadership of semiconductor design and manufacturing.

Honoring a Dallas Legend
This week I joined my friends and fellow Texans in celebrating the life of one of my dear friends and Dallas legend, Ebby Halliday. Ebby was an extraordinary women whose entrepreneurial spirit, grace, and vision made her a national and local leader of her time. Through her fearless leadership in the real estate industry and immense philanthropic efforts she changed the landscape of Texas forever. I knew Ebby for more than 25 years and I am proud to have called this wonderful woman my friend. She made an imprint on our community that will live on forever and I know she will be dearly missed by all who were blessed to know her.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today issued the following statement on the House’s vote on three measures demonstrating opposition to the Iran Nuclear Agreement:
“This week’s votes expressed what so many of our members and a vast majority of the American public have been saying for months: the Obama administration’s so-called deal with Iran is not a deal at all – it is a gift to a country that hates America and our allies and seeks our demise. The time and focus with which the House took to debate this deal underscores its historical significance and the potential global consequences that could arise because of the president’s actions.
“The House of Representatives showed overwhelming bipartisan opposition to the deal because it does almost nothing to stop Iran from building nuclear weapons, yet economically bolsters it in a way that could spawn a growth of terrorism and a spread of evil the likes of which we have never seen. In moments like these which define history, the president should look for support in Congress and work together to chart a path forward. Yet once again, President Obama has chosen to go it alone and move ahead with this reckless deal, despite the majority opposition demonstrated by the House. It is my hope that we will reverse course on this historic mistake before it is too late.”
The three measures were as follows: H. Res. 411 expressed the House’s finding that President Obama has not complied with a section of the Iran Nuclear Agreement that requires Congress to review so-called “side deals” that Iran has made with other entities that could potentially endanger the U.S. and its allies. H.R. 3460 would prevent the president from lifting economic sanctions on Iran. Finally, H.R. 3461 was a measure to approve of the overall deal, which overwhelmingly failed.
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today issued the following statement after the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the House of Representatives has standing to sue the Obama Administration for spending federal funds regarding the Affordable Care Act that were not appropriated by Congress:
"In July of last year the Rules Committee led a fight on behalf of the House of Representatives against President Obama’s refusal to faithfully execute the law with respect to the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The President’s unilateral changes to ObamaCare were unwise, unlawful and unconstitutional, and I am glad to see that today the judicial branch played its role in engaging with the requirements of the Constitution by allowing this lawsuit to go forward.
“The President’s failure to uphold his constitutional oath dangerously shifts the balance of power that our Founders drafted in our Constitution, and his actions undermined the rule of law that lies at the foundation of our society.
“The Court’s decision to grant the House standing will allow us to make a persuasive case that the power of the purse remains solely with Congress and that no president has the power to spend money that Congress does not appropriate. I look forward to continuing to defend our Constitution against the abuses of the executive branch and against the unconstitutional actions of this President.”
On Sunday I was delighted to join Julie Fine from NBC-5 on Lone Star Politics to discuss important issues facing our nation, including my new bill to strengthen interior enforcement and eradicate sanctuary cities. Recent events across the country, especially the horrific murder in San Francisco, have highlighted the severe problem we are facing in regard to criminal illegal aliens. We cannot sit idly by and watch this problem spin out of control, we must take action. That is why I joined my friend Senator Jeff Sessions in introducing the Protect American Lives Act to tackling this nationwide problem. This critical legislation takes a comprehensive approach to this national issue. It strengthens and clarifies the authority of ICE to deport illegal immigrants, prohibits federal funds from going to cities that do not comply with ICE, increases incarceration time for aliens who are deported and reenter our country, and requires DHS to complete an annual report on sanctuary cities.

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX-32), Chairman of the House Rules Committee and a Member of House Republican Leadership, today released the following statement regarding the August unemployment report:
“Today’s jobs report is a clear indication that the President’s reliance on overregulation, onerous taxes, and executive fiats is holding our economy back and preventing the robust job growth that hard working Americans need and deserve. While we have seen some positive signs of improvement, wages remain stagnant and the number of people participating in the labor force is the lowest it has been in almost four decades. We can and must do more. I look forward to working with my Republican colleagues to implement common sense, conservative solutions that reinvigorate our economy and put Americans back to work.”

I was delighted to attend the Rowlett Lions Club meeting on Monday evening to learn more about their efforts to help kids in the North Texas community. Their chapter is focused on providing a safe, nurturing environment for the children of Rowlett and ensuring the children in our community have every opportunity to succeed and thrive. I am extremely pleased to have such a wonderful organization in the 32nd Congressional District that is focused on strengthening our community and building our future leaders through service and leadership.

Visit to Texas Neurology
On Wednesday I had the opportunity to tour Texas Neurology and learn about their comprehensive care model and the work they are doing to improve the quality of life for citizens with neurological disorders not just in Dallas, but across North Texas and beyond. I am always thankful for the men and women who choose to devote their lives to caring for others, and the doctors at Texas Neurology are among those who deserve our gratitude for the services they perform.
