Congressman Stenholm Encourages Voter Participation

Congressman Charlie Stenholm is campaigning in the new 19th Congressional District to talk about the importance of education with students and teachers. On Thursday, the Congressman joined Texas Tech students campaigning in the Free Speech Area on the Texas Tech Campus to help encourage them to register and vote in the November election.

Stenholm also held a roundtable discussion with Lubbock public school teachers and retired teachers. He gave an update on the status of H.R. 594, "The Social Security Fairness Act" which would end the unfair discrimination against Texas teachers and other public employees who are currently denied the Social Security survivors benefit.

Congressman Stenholm has already signed the discharge petition that would force Republicans to consider the legislation before the entire U.S. House.
