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 ...

Henry Cuellar. “Zika virus infections have been reported here in our border communities, so vigilance is more important than ever. Now, our local officials have the resources they need to protect Hidalgo families. I thank the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Dr. John Hellerstedt, Commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services, for their help in securing these funds.” "Zika is a serious threat to communities in South Texas, and I am glad state and federal officials recognize the importance of treating and preventing the transmission of the virus in the region," said Congressman Vicente Gonzalez.

Bipartisan Bill to Increase North Am. Devel. Bank Funds Introduced by Texas Border Congressmen
Late yesterday afternoon, Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) introduced the North American Development Bank Improvement and General Capital Increase Authorization Act of 2017, co-sponsored by Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX), Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), Rep. Al Green (D-TX), Rep. Gene Green (D-TX), Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX), Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), and Rep. Filemon Vela (D-TX). This legislation provides the North American Development Bank (NADB) with needed funds to invest in clean drinking water, sewage treatment, and other essential projects on the U.S.-Mexico border. It would authorize funds that were appropriated in 2016, increasing the United States’ capital investment in NADB to match Mexico’s additional paid-in contribution of $225,000,000. It would also streamline NADB’s project approval process, fund limited port infrastructure and natural gas projects, and require reports to ensure NADB’s chosen projects provide good value to the region and taxpayers. “The North Amer
Rep. Cuellar: Bridge 1 Renovation Now Due in December
Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) today provided an update on the Gateway to the Americas International Bridge 1 renovation project in Laredo: “I recently spoke with GSA about the ongoing construction and renovation of the Gateway to the Americas International Bridge 1 in Laredo. The public should know the project is going smoothly, but GSA encountered some structural issues from the original facility that will push the estimated completion date by four months. The new estimated date of completion for the renovation project for Bridge 1 is December 2017. Both Mexico-bound traffic, and U.S. and Mexico-bound pedestrian traffic, remain operational and without an effect on wait times at Bridge 1. However, U.S.-bound vehicular traffic from Mexico will still be rerouted to the Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge 2 until completion of Bridge 1 this December. I thank GSA for their hard work and help on this project, as well as Mayor Pete Saenz, City Manager Jesus Olivares and our cou
