Randy's Roundup: Neugebauer Inspects Southwest Border

2015/01/27

Neugebauer Inspects Southwest Border This past weekend, I joined a group of my colleagues to inspect critical areas of the southwest border and see first-hand how we can best achieve security and defeat any threats to our nation.  The tour took us to McAllen, Texas, as well as spots along the Arizona-Mexico border and the California-Mexico border.  While the President continues to ignore this crisis, our porous border remains a threat to the security of individuals and families in the 19th District of Texas.  In the absence of leadership from the President, Congress must now address this national security issue. We received updates and briefings from our brave U.S. Border Patrol Agents, U.S. Coast Guard crews, and border sheriffs, about the daily challenges they face.  They fight these battles on the front lines, and it was truly an honor to be in the company of these men and women who sacrifice so much to keep us safe. We also met with businesses, farmers, and ranchers in the area who shared many stories and accounts of the problems they face from our unsecured borders.  I expect that the House will vote on legislation soon to secure our borders.  We need to get this right.  I expect that the focus of this legislation will be securing the borders ONLY.  Dealing with other issues related to immigration and immigration reform will come later.

The U.S. Trade Representative and the Secretary of Commerce responded to our letter and informed us that they are working with the U.S. cotton industry to respond to the investigations and will take all actions necessary to ensure Turkey abides by WTO obligations.  We continue to await a response from the Turkish Government.  I will be sure to continue to press this issue and fight for our hardworking cotton producers in the 19th District.

2015/01/22

WASHINGTON – Rep. Randy Neugebauer (TX-19) will join a group of Members of Congress, led by House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX), on a visit to the southwest border from January 22nd to January 26th. Members will examine the evolving national security threats to the Homeland; security at our southwest border; best practices to secure land and sea borders; technology currently deployed at the border; and analyze and assess inter-governmental integration and cooperation to secure the U.S. border with critical components including the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. The group will travel to San Diego, California, Tucson and Sierra Vista, Arizona, and McAllen, Texas. Neugebauer released the following statement ahead of the visit:

“Our porous border continues to threaten the security of individuals and families in the 19th District of Texas, the southwest region, and the entire nation. While the President continues to ignore this crisis, I will join my colleagues on the ground to tour critical areas of the southwest border and see first-hand how we can best achieve security and defeat any threats to the Homeland.”

Neugebauer Reintroduces PRO-LIFE Act

2015/01/22

WASHINGTON – Rep. Randy Neugebauer (TX-19) released the following statement today after introducing H.R. 463, the Protecting Life in Funding Education (PRO-LIFE) Act, to restrict funding to school districts that contract with third party “school-based health centers” unless they certify they won’t perform abortions and won’t provide abortion referrals or materials to students:

“Today, tens of thousands of Americans take to our nation’s capital in support of the unborn and to advocate for the sanctity of life. I stand with those who March for Life, and I am proud to reintroduce my PRO-LIFE Act, which prevents taxpayer funding for abortion referrals in public schools. Our public schools and school health centers should be a place for education and healing, not an avenue for hardworking tax dollars to flow to political groups and abortion advocates. On this annual March for Life, we must renew our efforts and continue to defend the rights of the unborn. I pray for a day that America fully respects and values the sanctity of life.”

Neugebauer reintroduced the PRO-LIFE Act after school districts across the country continue to partner with Planned Parenthood, the country’s largest abortion provider, to provide services to students. The bill has 16 original cosponsors.

INTERVIEW: Neugebauer on President's State of the Union address

Neugebauer Reacts to State of the Union Address

2015/01/21

WASHINGTON – Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) released the following statement after the President delivered his State of the Union Address:

“Tonight, the President once again doubled-down on the same failed tax and spend policies that have driven our nation further into debt while making it harder for individuals and families to get back up on their feet and reach the American Dream. The President continues to throw his support behind more tax hikes and the Washington-spends-best and knows-best attitude. We should instead pursue policies that increase economic optimism, innovation, and job creation.

“Every day, I hear from my constituents in the 19th District of Texas who are outraged by Washington’s overreach – from the President’s unconstitutional executive amnesty – to the regulatory assault on farmers, ranchers, and small business owners. I share their outrage and desire for change. The solutions to make America stronger are not found in the thousands of pages of Obamacare, the hundreds of rules and regulations under Dodd-Frank, or in tonight’s proposed tax increases on investments and college savings accounts. They are found in Main Street towns like those across West Texas and the Big Country.

“The President should abandon the failed policies of the past six years and work with our new Congress to help get the country moving in the right direction.”

Congressman Randy Neugebauer proudly represents the 19th Congressional District of Texas, which stretches across 29 counties.  He has offices in the cities of Abilene, Big Spring and Lubbock.

As one of the most conservative Members of Congress, Randy works to keep Washington accountable to hardworking American taxpayers by requiring commonsense spending and borrowing limits.

Randy was raised in West Texas, and he is a voice for traditional Texan values in Washington. Randy graduated from Texas Tech in 1972 with a degree in accounting.  He went on to work in real estate management, eventually starting his own land development company.

As a small business owner, Randy knows first-hand the dedication and commitment it takes to own and manage a successful company.  He also knows how government regulations can quickly deplete the resources of a small business, causing hard times for families and communities. Randy brings this businessman’s perspective to Congress where he advocates for reduced spending, fiscal discipline, free markets, and limited government.

Randy serves on three committees in the House of Representatives, where he can work on legislation that directly benefits his constituents.  He is a senior member of the House Agriculture Committee and the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee.  Additionally, he serves as the Chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing and Insurance.

As Housing and Insurance Subcommittee Chairman, he’s working to reform the housing market, cut regulatory burdens, and shift risk away from American taxpayers and back into the private sector.

Randy’s legislative initiatives include eliminating wasteful federal spending, improving crop insurance, and supporting diverse domestic energy sources. He continues to work on legislation that will empower the constituents of the 19th Congressional District.

Randy’s support of conservative principles has been recognized by many groups and organizations.  He has received the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Spirit of Enterprise Award, the Club for Growth Defender of Economic Freedom Award, and the Taxpayer’s Friend Award from the National Taxpayers Union.  He has earned a 100% lifetime rating by National Right to Life.  He has been recognized by National Journal as one of the six most conservative members of the U.S. House of Representatives.  In addition, Randy serves as an Assistant Republican Whip to House Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy.

Randy is married to his high school sweetheart, Dana, who is a Ropesville native. Together they have two sons, two daughters-in-law, and are the proud grandparents of three boys and one girl.
