Congressman Marc Veasey

Representing the 33rd District of Texas

Jobs and the Economy

Our country has added 6.1 million private sector jobs in the past 2 years and the national unemployment rate has dropped from 10 percent to under 8 percent.  America is moving in the right direction, but there is still much work that needs to be done.  We need to ensure investments are made in areas like manufacturing, clean energy, infrastructure, and housing.  These investments not only grow our economy, but also produce well-paying jobs.

As a member of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, I am focused on research and development that will make Texas and the 33rd Congressional District more competitive.  With employers like Lockheed Martin, Bell Helicopter, Texas Instruments, and Samsung in the Metroplex, we need to invest in science, technology, research and development. 

I am also a Member of the House Armed Services Committee and believe it’s important to invest in our military both for the sake of our national security and for job growth in the district.
