Henry Cuellar respects Perry, but won’t endorse him


Rep. Henry Cuellar, who crossed party lines in 2000 to endorse Republican George W. Bush, stopped just short of calling that endorsement a mistake. In an interview, he also made clear he would notendorse his friend Rick Perry in this year’s presidential race. Cuellar remains loyal to the Texas governor, who appointed the Laredo Democrat to serve as Texas secretary of state before he won his seat in Congress. But the past experience of crossing party lines and the resulting political fallout would prevent him from doing it again. “I’m just a big believer in ...

Reps. Cuellar and Culberson Introduce Gun Background Check Bill
Yesterday, Thursday, November 17, Reps. Henry Cuellar (D-TX), John Culberson (R-TX), Elizabeth Esty (D-CT), Ryan Costello (R-PA), and Pete Aguilar (D-CA) introduced H.R. 4434, a companion bill to the FIX NICS Act of 2017 that was introduced in the Senate earlier this week by Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Chris Murphy (D-CT). The investigation into the recent shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, revealed enormous gaps in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). This bipartisan legislation ensures federal and state authorities comply with existing law and accurately report relevant criminal history records to NICS. This bill provides consequences for federal agencies who fail to properly report relevant records and ensures that states improve their overall reporting. Federal and state records are thoroughly lacking, and this bill helps fill in those gaps. “Following the horrific shooting that occurred in my district, in Sutherland Springs, Texas, there is a
Rep. Cuellar’s Bill to Rename Tilden Post Office Passes House
Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) today announced the successful passage of H.R. 1207, a bill he authored to rename the post office located at 306 River Street in Tilden, Texas, as the “Tilden Veterans Post Office.” The bill passed the House and is now awaiting approval from the U.S. Senate. Speaking today on the House floor, Congressman Cuellar stressed the importance of naming this post office in honor of all veterans. “Across my district, there are many examples of fine men and women who have honorably served our country,” Congressman Cuellar said. “An example would be Anselmo Villareal of Tilden, Texas. He was drafted into the Army in 1968 and served a tour in Vietnam. He continues to serve others in a local veteran’s service organization. We owe our freedoms to veterans like Mr. Villareal, which is why I am recognizing him, and all veterans, with the dedication of this post office.” Congressman Cuellar also thanked local veteran caregivers for their service
