Texans oppose insurance mandate

Wichita Falls Rep. Mac Thornberry said he hopes the Supreme Court agrees with him that President Barack Obama's 2010 health care overhaul is unconstitutional. Thornberry and other Republicans have long taken issue with the law's individual mandate requiring Americans to buy health care insurance, starting in 2014, or pay a penalty. "For the federal government to require everybody in the country to purchase a commercial product — and you will be fined and what not if you don't, I think is unconstitutional and a vast overreach of federal power," Thornberry of Clarendon said. The Supreme ...

Thornberry talks defense budget cuts at Bell Helicopter

After President Obama released a new strategy last week in a proposal to cut the nation's defense budget by almost 500 billion dollars, there have been a lot of questions about how that strategy is going to be implemented. Wednesday, Congressman Mac Thornberry paid a visit toBell Helicopter and spoke about that strategy and what that could mean for Bell, and our area. One thing the congressman really wanted to emphasize was that the new strategy is just that -- a strategy. "Remember, the administration budget is just a proposal. They don't decide it, Congress decides it. And the President ...

House passed NDAA
Dear Friends, On Friday, the House passed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018.  The vote was 344 to 81.  The bill covers the wide range of programs and activities carried out by the Department of Defense and portions of the Department of Energy.  This year, the bill focuses on beginning to rebuild our military and reform the Pentagon. Nothing is more important than ensuring that the men and women who serve are fully supported with the best equipment, in the best shape, with the best training that our nation can provide.  Even on routine training missions and routine deployments, the men and women who serve are risking their lives for us.  The NDAA provides our troops with the full 2.4 percent pay raise, to which they are entitled to under the law – the biggest in eight years.  It beefs up missile defense at a time when those threats continue to grow.  It increases end strength to provide our services the personnel they nee

WASHINGTON - The House Armed Services Committee passed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018, which authorizes spending for military personnel, weapons systems, national security programs, and foreign military operations by a vote of 60 to 1.  “The threats our country faces today are more varied and widespread than ever before. While our enemies have been quickly advancing, our military has gotten smaller,” Thornberry said. “Our servicemembers work to protect us every day, and we owe them the best training, the best equipment, and other support our nation can provide.” The bill authorizes $631.5 billion in spending for defense needs, including a $28.5 billion increase for essential readiness recovery above the President’s budget request. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) also combats global terrorism by fully resourcing and authorizing counterterrorism efforts and U.S. Special Operations Forces, programs, and act

WASHINGTON - The U.S. House of Representatives passed the third National Defense Authorization Act under U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry's (R-Clarendon) chairmanship of the House Armed Services Committee by a vote of 344 to 81. “For the 56th year in a row, the House has passed a bipartisan bill that prioritizes the men and women in uniform who selflessly volunteer to support and defend our nation,” Thornberry said. This bill takes the necessary steps to begin to rebuild and reform our military, including billions in additional funds to begin to close the dangerous readiness gaps our troops are facing.” Sheppard Air Force Base: The NDAA authorizes funding for an increase in end strength of the Air Force and programs such as the training missions at Sheppard Air Force Base near Wichita Falls.  It also includes language to tighten evaluation process of energy projects close to military installations to help ensure that bases and training ranges are not adversel
House passes three bills to reform regulations affecting energy
WASHINGTON - The U.S. House of Representatives passed and Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) voted for three bills to reform regulations and federal requirements affecting energy production and delivery – H.R. 806, “Ozone Standards Implementation Act of 2017,” H.R. 2910, “Promoting Interagency Coordination for Review of Natural Gas Pipelines Act,” and H.R. 2883, “Promoting Cross-Border Energy Infrastructure Act.” “There is no question that burdensome energy regulations and unnecessary bureaucratic delays drive up costs and waste time for businesses, which ultimately hurts consumers,” Thornberry said. “These three bills are a step in the right direction to pull back some of the misguided regulations and decisions we have seen over the past few years.” H.R. 806, “Ozone Standards Implementation Act of 2017”  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ozone, which can result in
