U.S. Rep. Ted Poe

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) was sworn in for a fourth term as the United States Representative for the Second Congressional District of Texas.
In the 112th Congress, Poe will remain committed to his pledge not to support any bill that raises taxes on the American people and continue to fight for limited government spending and reduce unnecessary federal regulations and interference in our businesses and personal lives.
“I am proud to continue to serve the 2nd District of Texas and represent the issues that matter most to southeast Texans,” said Poe. “The American people have been more engaged in our government over the past two years than in any other time in recent memory. It is time to restore our government to the people of this country. After all, it’s ‘We the People.’”

Poe continues to be a leading advocate for increased border security and serves as an Executive Member of the Immigration Reform Caucus. As a strong proponent of energy independence, Poe is an ardent supporter of increased domestic drilling, alternative energy and supports an “all of the above” approach to lessening our dependence on foreign crude oil and natural gas.
As a former prosecutor and judge in Houston, Texas, for 30 years, Poe serves on the House Judiciary Committee; Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security and the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security.
