I recently received the American Conservative Union's "ACU Conservative" award for my conservative voting record. I'm proud of my record fighting for Houstonians in Washington. Click here to learn more about my conservative record, legislation I've sponsored, and my voting history.
A Balanced Budget
Washington has a spending problem. I was proud to support the House Republican budget, which puts our country on a path to fiscal sanity and economic growth. We use the same common-sense solutions that any financial advisor would give a family whose budget was in similar shape: stop spending money you don’t have on things you don’t need.

Culberson Chairs First Military Construction-VA Appropriations Subcommittee Hearing of 2014
I chaired the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee hearing on quality of life in the military. We heard from the most senior enlisted members from each branch of the military on what Congress can do to make sure that our men and women in uniform have the support and resources that they need. Pictured are Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps Micheal Barrett, Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Michael Stevens, and Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force James Cody.
Tax Fairness For Texans
I joined other members of Congress in requesting an extension of the state and local sales tax deduction for Texas taxpayers. More than 20% of our country's population resides in state's without an income tax: those states have opted to fund their state government with sales tax revenue. Since residents of Texas cannot claim a deduction for state income tax this deduction ensures that Texans are not punished for our state's preferred tax structure.
