Honoring and Remembering Sgt. Michael Smith

Yesterday I addressed the House to honor and remember Sgt. Michael Smith of the Dallas Police Department. The tragedy that took place on July 7th left a scar on our community. But the bravery and memory of all of the officers whose lives were cut short will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace Sgt. Michael Smith of Carrollton, Texas.

The Social Security MAIL Act (H.R. 5320) requires the Social Security Administration to remove Social Security Numbers from all mailings and justify when the inclusion is necessary. Congress must continue its work to combat identity theft, especially in our most vulnerable populations.
