As a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, I serve on the Middle East, North Africa Subcommittee and act as Vice-Chair for the Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights and International Organizations Subcomittee. Economic growth and infrastructure development in African countries, coupled wih the expansion of the Panama Canal, means more imports and exports moving through our ports on the Gulf Coast. Enhancing regional stability around the world also leads to greate security for our nation and economy.

I look forward to hearing from you.
