When Rep. Michael McCaul was in grade school, he lost his best friend to cancer. It has always affected him, especially when he meets with constituents whose children are sick.
And then three years ago, he met an inspiring new friend.
An engineering project proposed before the U.S. entered World War II could have reduced the effects from the massive flooding brought on by Hurricane Harvey that sent thousands of people fleeing for their lives, the head of the House Committee on Homeland Security said Friday during a press conference at Katy's city hall.
Congressman Michael McCaul huddled with Katy and local officials regarding a possible new reservoir to be built near Katy.
McCaul said early projects for the reservoir are projected in the $550-600 million range but added that is a project that was planned 1940 but was aborted due to money issues.
