|Texans are concerned with the safety of their families, the strength of our economy, lower health care costs and protecting coverage for those with pre-existing conditions, and that is what our message is all about. I'm fighting for safer communities by supporting efforts like the Patrick Underwood Act and the David Dorn Act to stand with law enforcement; keeping our Texas economy the strongest and best in the nation by passing the CARES Act and historic tax reform; and sponsoring legislation in Congress like the Pre-Existing Conditions Protection Act to protect health care coverage for those with pre-existing conditions.|
