U.S. Representative Lamar Smith took time out of his hectic schedule to speak with the Chamber’s SA to DC delegation during our recent trip to Washington.

Representative Smith started his speech with praise for San Antonio, stating that he brags about San Antonio every week to his peers. “I say to them, I don’t know of another city in America that is over 200 years old, tri-cultural, and harmonious,” Smith told the audience. “We have a great history in San Antonio, and I don’t think any other city has that.”

Smith discussed a variety of topics like efforts to get a direct flight from San Antonio to Washington D.C., health care and tax reform, and job creation. Before ending his speech, Representative Smith fielded questions from our delegation in a Q&A session on topics including the Environmental Protection Agency and more.
