On Thursday, I joined President Trump to meet with the families and students of Santa Fe High School. In the face of unspeakable evil, the Santa Fe community is standing strong, and continues to demonstrate tremendous resolve. This week, the Department of Education announced $1 million in federal funds for the Santa Fe Independent School District through a Project School Emergency Response to Violence (Project SERV) grant. I applaud Secretary DeVos for expediting this grant, and remain committed to working with Governor Abbott, the members of the Texas House and Senate, the Administration, and my Congressional colleagues to put an end to these violent crimes and protect our students.
In Texas and across the country, the space industry generates tens of thousands of good paying jobs. This week, Politico highlighted my efforts to advance America’s leadership in space, including two bills I authored that have been signed into law. I am encouraged by the strong bipartisan commitment in Congress to safeguard America's leadership in advancing on the next frontier - most critically going to Mars – and I will continue working to ensure that Texas reaps the benefits of our nation’s commitment to space exploration.

Though the Texas gulf coast faced enormous devastation following Hurricane Harvey, we continue to make great strides in the road to recovery. This year, we must take all the steps necessary to protect our communities from further hurricane devastation. June marks the beginning of hurricane season, and I urge my fellow Texans to utilize all available resources in order to be prepared for heavy rainfalls and floods.
My Senate office continues to work to ensure swift and effective service to Texans and Texas communities in need of federal assistance following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. If you need additional information or assistance during the recovery and rebuilding process, please do not hesitate to contact my office or use the federal and state resources listed here.
