Congressman Doggett Tours TSA Office, Receives AIA Support

U. S. Representative Lloyd Doggett (TX-25) is the TSA office’s most recent “official visitor,” having toured and met the staff on Mon., Sept. 27, when he came by to receive public acknowledgement of his support of AIA positions, as well as the national PAC’s financial support. The congressman was lauded for his 100% voting record on 2009 AIA issues, including the “21st Century High Performing School Facilities Act” and “Small Business Financing & Investment Act of 2009.” 

Congressman Doggett has a long history of supporting AIA and TSA positions, especially in areas of historic preservation, small business tax policy, qualification-based selection of design professionals (QBS), and high-quality design for more energy efficient public buildings. Doggett’s history of professional support dates back to his service in the Texas Senate (1973-85) and continues through his service in Congress, which began in 1994.

Doggett serves on the House Budget and Ways & Means committees. Shown with Congressman Doggett (2nd from left) are: (l to r) Interim TSA Executive Vice President Tommy Cowan, FAIA; AIA Austin Executive Director Sally Fly, Hon. AIA; and John Nyfeler, FAIA, representing ArchiPAC, the AIA’s political action committee. Also involved in the meeting were TSA staff members Yvonne Castillo (General Counsel) and David Lancaster, Hon. AIA (Sr. Director for Advocacy).
