West Texas General Contractors Meet with Our Congress

By April 23, 2010 No Comments

We set aside last Wednesday as the day we would meet with our congressional representatives, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison’s office, Sen. John Cornyn, and Rep. Randy Neugebauer. It was a full day to say the least.

We met with a senior aide to Sen Hutchison, as she was unavailable to speak with us.

However, Sen. Cornyn spent considerable time with us. He was already knowledgeable of issues related to banking regulation. We were particularly impressed with his obvious interest in our concerns. We left feeling very good about having had the opportunity to visit with him.

Rep. Randy Neugebauer is always very anxious to make us feel welcome. His background makes him particularly sensitive to issues affecting a healthy home-building market.

All three expressed support for our positions. They seemed to appreciate the fact that we took the time and effort to come to Washington D.C.  to voice our opinions. We were particularly happy that Sen. Cornyn and Rep. Neugebauer took the time to meet personally with us.
