Rep. Ratcliffe meets with Northeast Texas students at U.S. Capitol

(ROCKWALL, TX — June 14, 2018) Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) met with a group of high school students from Texas’ 4th District this week who were selected by Texas Electric Cooperatives to participate in the Government-in-Action Youth Tour for 2018.

The annual tour provides high school students in rural Texas a cost-free opportunity to visit the nation’s capital and meet with their representatives in the federal government. Students are selected for the tour by their local electric cooperatives through essay or speech contests.
