As chairman of the Science, Space, and Technology Committee, I have repeatedly sought answers from the White House regarding the security of the ObamaCare website, Healthcare.gov. The Obama administration has failed to provide this Committee with information.

House Approves Keystone XL Pipeline

The Keystone Pipeline project has sat awaiting approval for six years. It took less time to win World War II than it has for the Administration to approve the pipeline. The pipeline from Canada to Southeast Texas would bring in almost as much oil as America gets from Saudi Arabia. It would create at least 100,000 jobs in its lifetime, including 20,000 immediate construction and manufacturing jobs. Pipelines are proven to be an environmentally safe way to transport energy. This project should be a no-brainer for America, but sadly it has been continually delayed due to

Congressman Neugebauer on Terrorist Financing, ISIL

Today I questioned the Hon. David S. Cohen, Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, U.S. Department of the Treasury, at a hearing on terrorist financing and ISIL.

To eliminate the global threat of ISIL, we need to defeat and destroy them on the front lines of the battlefield and engage in a financial war on their funding sources. We cannot continue to allow these terrorists to raise $1-$2 million per day to carry out their attacks. I remain committed to working with my colleagues on the House

Yesterday, a source close to the White House leaked what they claim is the administration’s plan to address immigration – a 10-point executive action that, among other provisions, would suspend deportation orders for up to 4.5 million unauthorized immigrants. ImmigrationWorks president Tamar Jacoby made the following statement:

Tea Party groups in North Texas splinter after Capriglione says there is no race for Speaker

Originally published on the Quorum Report:

DALLAS – It may have been the hope of some Tea Party leaders here in North Texas that the headlines this week would read something like “Conservatives Unite Against Joe Straus,” but it hasn’t quite played out that way.

If anything, a splintering among Tea Party groups here in the region is now more apparent following what some have called a bold move by Rep. Giovanni Capriglione, R-Southlake,
