United States Congressman Lloyd Doggett represents communities from San Antonio to Austin. He serves on the House Ways & Means Committee, which has jurisdiction over taxes, trade, Social Security, Medicare, and more. He is the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Tax Policy, with jurisdiction over issues relating to revenue measures. He also serves on the Subcommittee on Human Resources and the Subcommittee on Trade. In addition, he is a member of the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee.

In 2015, Save the Children recognized his leadership with the Congressional Champion for Real and Lasting Change Award. AARP honored him in 2016 with its Legislative Leadership Award for his efforts to preserve seniors' access to healthcare. He was also awarded the "Champion of Music" award by the Texas Chapter of The Recording Academy, which sponsors the Grammy Awards. He is the co-founder and co-chair of the House Prescription Drug Taskforce working to lower the price of prescription drugs, and authored bills that established the Commission to End Child Abuse and Neglect Fatalities and successfully enacted a higher-education tax credit.

While a student at The University of Texas at Austin, he was elected student body president and graduated first in his class from the College of Business Administration. He then graduated with Honors from Texas Law, where he served as Associate Editor of the Texas Law Review. Elected to the Texas Senate soon after, Congressman Doggett became known for his untiring work ethic. He authored 124 state laws, including one which created the Texas Commission on Human Rights to prohibit discrimination and another called the Texas Sunset Act, which sought greater efficiency and accountability by requiring periodic review of government agencies.

Elected in 1988 to serve as Justice to the Texas Supreme Court, he wrote opinions supporting the right to a trial by jury and authored an important rule bolstering the public's access to information. He served as Chair of the Supreme Court Task Force on Judicial Ethics and was recognized as an Outstanding Judge in Texas by the Mexican-American Bar of Texas. He was awarded the James Madison Award from the Freedom of Information Foundation of Texas, and received the First Amendment Award from the National Society of Professional Journalists.

In 1994, Lloyd Doggett was elected to serve in the United States House of Representatives. A strong defender of Social Security, Medicaid, health care, immigration reform, the environment, our veterans, and public education, he continues to make the priorities of Texans his priorities. In 2006, the Texas Association of Mexican American Chambers of Commerce named Congressman Doggett the Government Hispanic Business Advocate of the Year.

Representative Doggett's wife, Libby, recently served as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Early Learning at the U.S. Department of Education. They have two daughters- Lisa, an Austin physician; and Cathy, who leads teams across Texas that work with new, disadvantaged parents. The Doggetts have four grandchildren- Ella, Clara, Zayla, and Canyon.
