December 26, 2022
Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX-08) joined The Texan’s regional reporter Kim Roberts to discuss Brady’s 26-year tenure in the nation’s Capitol as he retires at the end of the 117th United States Congress.

Brady discussed his accomplishments in Congress, such as those involving trade, the oil and gas industry, and his opposition to a high-speed rail project between Dallas and Houston.

He also discussed what policies the next House Ways and Means Committee chairman should prioritize and the transition from his office to Representative-elect Morgan Luttrell.

“I love my job; it’s really been a blessing,” said Brady. “But 26 years is a good run, and you sorta know when it’s time to step back.”

“Obviously I’m going to miss the issues, the policies, the people I work with, but we’re ready for a new adventure. We never moved to Washington. [. . .] We live in The Woodlands just north of Houston, so that’s where we’ll be.”
