Speaker: Congressman Michael T. McCaul

RSVP by Tuesday, September 3 at: https://austinrepublicanwomen.org/rsvp

Now serving his eighth term, Congressman McCaul represents the 10th District of Texas, a U.S. Congressional District that stretches from Austin to the Houston suburbs.

At the start of the 116th U.S. Congress, Congressman McCaul became the Lead Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee which is tasked with among other charges promoting American leadership on the global stage by advancing the common interests of nations in defense of stability and democracy. McCaul also serves as Chairman Emeritus on the House Homeland Security Committee. Prior to being term-limited, Congressman McCaul served as the Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, working with the Department of Homeland Security to combat foreign and domestic terrorism, stop the illegal flow of drugs into America, and secure our borders. 

After being first elected to Congress, McCaul founded the Congressional Childhood Cancer Caucus to give a voice to the nearly 16,000 children diagnosed with cancer every year, and survivors who face long-term health issues stemming from treatments they received as children. In 2018, he led the effort to get the Childhood Cancer Survivorship, Treatment, Access and Research (STAR) Act signed into law – the most comprehensive childhood cancer bill passed by Congress which aims to increase NIH funds for childhood cancer research. Because of his efforts, the American Cancer Society recognized him in March of 2019 with the National Distinguished Advocacy Award.

Just this August, McCaul hosted two human trafficking events in Austin and Houston bringing together stakeholders, law enforcement and health care professionals to discuss steps for defeating human trafficking and treating survivors.

A fourth-generation Texan who previously served his great state in many capacities including Texas Deputy Attorney General under now U.S. Senator John Cornyn, Michael McCaul and his wife, Linda, an active ARW member, are proud parents of five children and make their home in Austin.
