Mississippi representative leads bipartisan effort on Capitol Hill

Local News

U.S. Representative Bennie Thompson joined forces with Michael McCaul, a Republican Congressman from Texas, to lead a bipartisan effort on Capitol Hill.
The two encouraged fellow congressmen to aid in writing to appropriators in support funding the Nonprofit Security Grant Program.
This grant will protect religious institutions — following the tragic Tree of Life Synagogue shooting, that took place in Pittsburgh last month.
Together, Thompson and McCaul allied  139 members of Congress in support of the effort.
