The borders of the United States have expanded considerably since independence was declared

The borders of the United States have expanded considerably since independence was declared. As the nation grew, newer and more detailed maps were needed so the country could plan ahead and utilize the landscape and resources available. Gen. William Emory, an army cartographer, was a vital part of this process. Emory’s diligent studies and attention to detail not only shaped the borders of the United States but also shaped the borders of Texas and revealed the great wonders of the Upper Rio Grande.

Congressman Moran statement on rules package

Congressman Nathaniel Moran released the following statement in regard to the rules package that is anticipated to be proposed by the Republican Conference once a Speaker is elected: “Freedom is the right to question and change the established way of doing things. It is the continuous revolution of the marketplace. It is the understanding that allows us to recognize shortcoming and seek solution.” These wise words spoken by President Ronald Reagan rang true in 1988 and continue to ring true today. I applaud all members of the Republican Conference for working tirelessly to prepare a rules package that, among other things, will end proxy voting, requires at least 72 hours notice before voting on a bill, limits the broad definition of germaneness, and reinstates the traditional rules for a Motion to vacate so that leadership remains accountable.
