Rep. Gene Green Statement on the 115th Congress
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Gene Green (TX-29) released the following statement today after the 115th Congress convened:
“It’s an honor to represent Houstonians and our City in the 115th Congress. In Washington and at home I am constantly working so that our constituents’ voices are represented and so that our region has the policies and resources in place needed for it to be successful and prosperous.
“As we look to the future, it is critical that we come together to put people before politics and craft responsible, fair, and sensible policies that will move our nation forward.
"That is why I remain committed to fighting for the 20,000 constituents in the 29th Congressional District and the 20 million Americans who now have access to health care coverage because of the Affordable Care Act and to fighting efforts to undo the executive actions that have kept immigrant families from being split apart through deportation. I will push for legislation that strengthens and protects the American economy and increases our job base, ensures veterans receive the benefits they earned, and protects programs like Social Security, Medicaid, and CHIP which provide rungs for Americans to move up the economic ladder."
