Hate illegal robocalls to your cell phone or home phone? This week we passed a bill to stop these scammers. It's expected to be signed into law soon by President Trump. ✅Requires carriers to Implement a nationwide caller authentication system so consumers can again trust that the number they see on their caller ID is actually the person calling them. ✅Allows consumers to block unlawful calls in a consistent and transparent way, at no extra charge. ✅Makes sure that law enforcement and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) have the tools, information, and incentives to go after robocallers that break the law.

Congratulations to Central A&M on a hard-fought season. They represented their school well in their first state championship showing in nearly 20 years. Go Raiders!

Many of our smaller airports across the country operate using contract towers, but current restrictions under the law are discouraging air traffic controllers from working in our rural areas. This bill will help our contract towers recruit and retain controllers by allowing federal controllers to continue receiving their Social Security annuity payment while working at contract towers. Ensuring contract towers are properly staffed is critical to safety and the local economies these airports serve.
