Culberson Works to Restore State Sovereignty & Parental Rights Over Education
This week, the House will vote on the Student Success Act which rewrites the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. I do not believe the federal government should have a role in the education of our children. That is why I included language in the bill that will restore state sovereignty over public education by changing education grants from an “opt-out” to an “opt-in” process. It is critical we protect our Founder’s intent for a limited government and empower States with the flexibility they need to best provide for their people.
Culberson: Americans Want the Rule of Law to Prevail
I recently joined House and Senate Republicans in calling on Senate Democrats to end their filibuster of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funding bill. The legislation was already approved by the House earlier this year. The bill provides full funding for DHS and blocks President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty.
Restoring the 10th Amendment

Restoring the 10th Amendment will restore the American Republic that President Washington and the Founders created. On the first day of the 114th Congress, I authored and introduced legislation that would restore our Constitutional republic. Click "more" to read about my legislation.
