Lee Terry's Recent Accomplishments

Champions for Children Award - Rep. Lee Terry was honored by two national organizations representing schools that serve the children of America's armed forces.  The Military Impacted Schools Association (MISA) and National Association of Federally Impacted Schools (NAFIS) presented Congressman Terry with the "Champions for Children" award.   Members of Congress who have worked especially hard to help meet the needs facing military school districts are rewarded with this award.

      Terry led the fight in Congress last year to restore funding for the federal Impact Aid program.  Last year, Nebraska schools received $18 million in Impact Aid funding with about $13.5 went to schools in Terry's congressional district.

Ethics Pool Appointment - Rep. Lee Terry has been selected by Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert to be one of ten Republican Members of the House "ethics pool."  Congressman Terry can now be drawn on anytime to help oversee investigations into House ethics complaints.  Members named to the ethics pool have extensive legal experience.  Terry received his Juris Doctorate from Creighton University Law School and was a practicing attorney before he was elected to Congress, which made him an excellent candidate for the position.  Of over 200 Republicans in the House of Representatives, being selected is a huge honor.

Terry on HEAT Team -  Rep. Lee Terry is part of the House Energy Action Team (HEAT), a group of Republican energy leaders who have committed themselves to sending a comprehensive energy plan to the President's desk.  HEAT is co-chaired by House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX), House Resources Committee Chairman Richard Pombo (R-CA), and Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Joe Barton (R-TX).

      The House of Representatives has passed an Energy Bill last November but it was defeated in the Senate when a minority of Senators filibustered the legislation.   "As an active member of the Energy & Commerce Committee, Rep. Terry will bring expertise and enthusiasm to the HEAT team.  His consistent support for a comprehensive national energy policy has been a vote for lower energy prices, better reliability and greater choice for his constituents and America," Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Joe Barton remarked.
