PESA hosted freshman Rep. Sylvia Garcia (D-TX-29) for a tour of a Baker Hughes, a GE Company facility in South Houston on April 25 where she met with employees and learned about the latest in oilfield services technology. The Congresswoman discussed the current climate in Washington surrounding the oil and gas industry, as well as her work on issues such as veterans’ affairs and international trade.
Garcia sits on the House Judiciary and Financial Services committees and represents the 29th Congressional District of Texas, which includes Galena Park, Jacinto City, and much of east and north Houston. She toured Baker Hughes’ manufacturing plant on Navigation Blvd., which has been part of the South Houston community for nearly 100 years and employs more than 300 individuals.
PESA has recently hosted several Congressional tours, including DistributionNOW with Rep. Brian Babin, Kerr Pumps with Rep. Tom Cole and BJ Services with Rep. Michael McCaul.
