Rep. Lloyd Doggett joins HUD Secretary Julian Castro, SAHA, and Local Leaders to Dedicate the East Meadows CommunityThe East Side of San Antonio continues to provide the necessary resources needed for the community to improve, including one major step to create affordable housing.
AARP has announced U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett as a recipient of the 2016 “Champion of the 50+” legislative leadership award for his significant achievements during the 114th Congress that benefit the lives of the 50+ and our families.
“As we pass by here and others pass by here, they will see leaders that have contributed to build this community and are continuing to inspire others,” Doggett said. “What’s especially beautiful is all the work that Martinez Street does in between these murals, and that is working with our girls and young women to be healthy, to involve them in the community. This is a great coming together.”

I spoke on the House floor for substantial, certain funding to develop lifesaving cures and treatments. But the new version of the 21st Century Cures Act provides about a quarter of the funding per year as the version that I voted for last year—and this new funding isn’t even guaranteed. Patients deserve better, especially if the trade-off is loosening safety standards on drugs and medical devices while getting no relief from high drug prices. I hope a “no” vote will give my colleagues in the Senate a chance to try to make this bill a little better.
